Make an Art Scene
- Address: 310 S. Harrington St., Warehouse District, Raleigh, NC 27603
- Area: Downtown Raleigh
Get ready to play, mix and mingle on a 2-hour guided art tour led by Raleigh artist and educator Thea Howell during Raleigh’s First Friday events. Explore with Thea in The Warehouse District, and just beyond it, at the First Friday art receptions happening at CAM Raleigh, Visual Art Exchange, Imurj, and The Art of Style, and potential surprise stops depending on what’s on schedule. Thea applies her 20 years of experience as a gallerist, museum educator, and fine artist to make the art come to life through humor, storytelling, insight, hands-on experiences, and interactive participation using the works of art on exhibit. Each setting is uniquely different, with it’s own culture, so you’ll get a well-rounded snapshot of the downtown Raleigh arts scene. Gallery activities and great conversation means that you’ll get the most out of what you saw, make lasting memories, pump up your ability to talk about art, and even take-away a piece of memorabilia. Bonus, it’s on a night where most artists are representing their work in-person, the art-viewing is energized..and the wine flows...and you never know if an exhibiting artist or local creative or two Thea knows may get roped in to our group. Let’s make an art scene together. Prices start at $125 for a group of five people.
