The Ap(ART) Walk

  • Address: 409 W. Martin St., Warehouse District, Raleigh, NC 27603

About

Downtown Raleigh is home to hundreds of murals and this art walk aims to shed some light and introspection on the most notable of them. Hosted by our enigmatic art enthusiasts Greg Whitt and Annelies Gentile and inspired partly by the safety requirements of the pandemic, this experience breaks the normal gallery touring formula of an art walk and exclusively explores some of the art we don’t always take the time to think about. Who painted these public pieces, how do they change our relationship with the city, and why didn’t I ever notice that before? You’ll ask and answer these questions and more on the ApART Walk.
Annelies was born near New York City, of European parents. Her father was born of Italian immigrants, her mother, from The Netherlands. Her family history is rich in creativity, talent and introspection. Now she is a visionary and Process Artist herself. Annelies has lived in Raleigh since 1985 and has insights into what Raleigh was like “way-back when". She also has long-time relationships with a network of fellow Raleigh artists. To learn more about Annelies check out her coaching website www.conduitforchange.com and art website www.anneliesgentile.com
Greg believes life is richer when we communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with one another and with the world around us. He's an award-winning facilitator and arts-educator teaching applied philosophy through music in corporations, congregations, communities, and classrooms. Greg is founder of the Raleigh Drum Circle and hyper-active in the local arts community. On the hunt for vintage hi-fi and midcentury modern design, he's hip to all the second-hand shops in town. Greg is a graduate of NC State University and holds a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. He has called Raleigh home since 1986. You can find him online at www.drumforchange.com, in a hammock, or perhaps behind a brew of one sort of another in locally-owned establishments throughout the city.
