Spring is here… and on our walls, reception Fri March 19

As part of our efforts to accelerate the onset of Spring and eradicate all traces of Ole Man winter, we have installed an exhibit of birding photography (all in full color) in the foyer gallery.

Ricky Davis is a noted ornithologist and wildlife photographer. He is a co-author and co-editor of Birds of the Carolinas published by UNC Press.

There are sixteen images in the show, each a different bird that is native to the Carolinas. Come see how many you can identify.

The RECEPTION is Friday, March 19 from 6-9 pm as part of Third Friday Durham

At the reception, we will be selling raffle tickets for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. $5 gets you one ticket. Increase your chances of winning… if you drop a twenty you’ll get five tickets. Two weekend passes will be awarded to two lucky winners (one pass each). The winning tickets will be pulled at on April Fools Day by the first person to walk by our door at high noon. I’ll holler at the winners then. The festival is April 8-11 and I’m hoping to raise at least $1,000. All monies raised go directly to Full Frame.

I should have the Full Frame broadsheets by Friday so you can grab one to take home and check out the lineup. We are working on designing the program guide right now, and as always there are some great films coming our way.

Everyone who buys a raffle ticket gets a free beer, served up by our celebrity guest bartenders. Buy ten tickets for $40, and I’ll throw in a free set of letterpress cards.

  1. Who are those celebrity bartenders? We are so very curious. We hear they are quite the lookers.
