The first Art of Us was held on October 17 at Bark: Stuff Made of Wood in 2019. This fast-paced two hour event featured local artists exhibits, pop-up musical performances by new collaborations between local musicians, chili and cornbread by the incomparable Doug Swindler, Jr. and art giveaways.
We had hoped to hold The Art of Us again in October 2020 but COVID-19 thwarted those plans. We are sad to announce that the 2021 event has also been cancelled due to COVID-19. To see more photos of the first The Art Of Us, check out Gordon Allen's gallery on Facebook.
This event was made possible by RCAC members, North Carolina Arts Council, and Bark: Stuff Made of Wood. Thank you for all your support!
