North Carolina

I have been traveling and painting again. I love North Carolina. A state rich in history it was first attempted to be colonized by the Spanish and then later the British. North Carolina,as a plantation state had a long history of slavery.

Yesterday I traveled to Raleigh , the capital of the state and a city know for it lovely oaks. The park in the down town area boasts a large sculpture of an acorn. While I was in Raleigh I visited "Art Space. The building houses 28 working artist along with exhibitions and education class' in the arts taught by the residence artist.

The minute I walked into Art Space I thought of the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria Virginia that I toured last year. Art Space is much smaller having 28 working artist where the Torpedo Factory has 82 working artist the feel is similar. I spoke to some of the artist there and they said that, yes it had been modeled after the torpedo factory. If I were an artist in the area I would want to be in this space the artistic juice was flowing here.

If you visit Raleigh the Art Space is a must see and while you are there stop and see the gallery of watercolorists Nancy Meadow Taylor.
