Blogpost survey of Durham photography shows

Posted in 21st century life, Aesthetic Experience, Art, Durham, Event, Friends on December 12, 2011 by horseandbuggypress

John Wall has written a nice blogpost covering the array of photography shows going on in Durham right now. I’m grateful that he has made mention of Raymond’s portraits of farmers that will be up here (and at Piedmont restaurant next door) through the end of January.

We’ve decided to have a closing reception for Burlap on Friday, Jan 20 from 6-9pm which should be a fun time to come by and see (or re-visit) the show.

Whatever you do, make sure you get over to Craven Allen Gallery and see the beautiful show by MJ Sharp. Stunning.

Below are a couple of images couple from MJ’s exhibit. Regular visitors to the BCAC foyer gallery I curate will recognize a few images that graced our walls a couple years ago. A definite treat to see a larger gathering of MJ’s work. If you can, plan to spend some slow time in the Craven Allen gallery and give yourself a great treat.


Friday Foyer Gallery Hours Return. Daisycakes next door

The foyer gallery I curate, showcasing the work of guest artists in a variety of media, is now open every Friday from 11:30am – 1:45pm.

The idea is you pair up a visit here with lunch next door at Daisycakes

After kicking it out of a vintage Airstream for a few years…

…Tonya and Konrad have a brick and mortar bakery space and we’re excited to have them right next door. They did a great job outfitting the space and are putting out an impressive array of baked goods. In addition to cupcakes and sweet and savory snacks, they also have a nice bevy of sandwiches, homemade soups, and lunch fare and the space has a bigger and more comfy than you’d expect seating area with free wi-fi.


Buy any one of Raymond’s medium or large prints (framed or unframed) in the current exhibit Burlap: Portraits of Piedmont region farmers and I’ll give you a $10 gift certificate to Daisycakes. No joke.

Burlap: by Raymond Goodman is a two venue photography exhibit which continues onto the walls of Piedmont restaurant next door (yet another 401 Foster Street tenant). The fifteen images in the exhibit are presented in handmade wooden frames. The images are for sale at two sizes, 16 x 24 and 24 x 36, with or without frames, and are also availabe as $20 cash-n-carry smaller prints.

The exhibit is up through January 28, and there will be a closing reception Friday, January 20 from 6–9pm. (the two-fer special ends Dec 23 though)

Please know I’m happy to show the work by appt. Just give a call at 919 949-4847, and also know when I work Saturday mornings I’ll kick the samwich board sign out front which means come in.
