We’re excited to announce our February artist, Michael McCue!
Local artist and art educator Michael McCue will beshowcasing several paintings that explore the balance of realistic subjectmatter but unconventional color and abstraction. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, he is a new North Carolinian after relocating to pursue his dream of becoming an elementary art teacher. His paintings began with a conceptual series of self-portraits breaking into puzzle pieces tolater evolve into more painterly, whimsical, color theory inspired works. He often draws inspiration from the enthusiasm and curiosity of his elementary age students and creates paintings that he finds others would enjoy creating too. He feels that the teaching of art is the teaching of life in many aspects which enhances the idea that all artists see the world differently.

We’ve got new artwork up! We’re excited to display work by Interdisciplinary artist Kristina Keeter. She uses ordinary materials as both inspiration and subject matter for her surreal images. In their abstraction, her works prompt us to observe and appreciate the ephemeral beauty of overlooked “everyday” things such as used coffee filters, food compost, or paper scraps. By repositioning and reimagining their compositions, she elevates the status of these found objects and allows the viewer to dream up new realities and meanings for them.
Her other work can be found at www.keetart.com
Be sure to stop by to see her work in person!
