Last weekend I went to the holiday exhibition opening Metal 3 at Light Art + Design Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC. I'd heard many great things about this gallery, especially since several of my friends and ECU alumni are represented there, so I was very happy to be invited to stay at Tara Locklear's place and spend the evening in a city, that is so close that I'd never been to.
Light is owned by two interior designers so the aesthetic and feel of the gallery lends itself to a modern and visually appealing space. I very much enjoyed the feel of the gallery, as well as ogling the gorgeous jewelry and sculpture on display. I was also very happy to see Hoss Haley's pieces (that my Penland Class had seen in the process) exhibited!
This was also a celebration of sorts as I got to spend the evening with Sarah West and Tara Locklear, whom I haven't been with both at the same time in awhile. The three of us were the older ladies in the ECU undergrad studio back in the day (about 3 years ago). It was really great catching up with them and reliving old memories.
I hope you enjoy this post!

Of course, the ECU metalsmiths are very well represented. Laura Wood and Zachary Lechtenburg are also represented by Light.
