Had a great time the @artspacenc Holiday Market today where I met cool people and sold one of my very first artists books from 2007!!! Shown here is one of the folios.

Is the portrayal of black men in America fair and balanced? Do we perceive every black male as being the worst our society has to offer? Are black men a monolith?

Telling the story of how I was inspired by my cousin Bobby to be a great painter and my mom to be an entrepreneur at the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center! Lives were changed.

Hanging out at the studio for First Friday. Worked on making a bunch of odds and ends into pendants today. They were starting to pile up, good way to use them up. Sold an old class idea tonight, I loved the design but it never made it into an actual class, now someone can enjoy it instead of sitting in a bin around here. . Have a great Friday everyone! . #beads #jewelry #jewellery #bijoux #pendants #handmade #beadedjewelry #beadedbeads #artspacenc #raleigh #art #wearableart

Is the portrayal of black men in America fair and balanced? Do we perceive every black male as being the worst our society has to offer? Are black men a monolith? . . . I will lead a community discussion at Artspace (@artspace ) on Thursday, Dec. 13 to unpack these questions and more. The conversation will start with my "Any Black Man" portrait series in which I examine how American media criminalizes black men. . . . The conversation will focus on why black men are perceived this way and how the true narrative can be shared. . . . The event will be held in a classroom at Artspace. Starts at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments and opening remarks. We hope to see you there. Please make sure and RSVP as space is limited. . . . #ArtspaceAP #TheBlackOnBlackProject #artspacenc #firstfridayraleigh #downtownraleigh #thingstodoinraleigh #community #activism #roundtable #residency #openstudio #northcarolina #blackartists #supportlivingartists #blackmenwhopaint #impactfirst #rsvp
#Repost @theclarkhulingsfund (@get_repost ) ・・・ After poring over all of the applications, we are thrilled to name the 16 visual artists who will be joining our 2019 Art-Business Accelerator program in January. It was extremely difficult to choose from among so many wonderful applicants, but we are excited about the diverse group of Fellows that we’ve assembled. Welcome on board! Thank you to all of the artists who threw their hats in the ring this year. Our next Fellowship call opens in September 2020, but in the interim we encourage you to visit our Digital Learning Portal to access valuable art-business resources and join a learning community of working artists. You can view the profiles of our 2019 fellows at https://clarkhulingsfund.org/accelerator/#fellows .
#throwback to the early work of the Horizonscape collection c.1999, acrylic/canvas panel, 18”x22”. These two paintings were part of a suite of twelve works exhibited in the show “Testament” of c.2000. . . Created on the Gulf Coast’s Longboat Key, the initial pieces anticipated the Millennial Change with just a glint or suggestion of illumination. . . “Lightening” and “Ridge”, along with other small early examples from various series, now available in the studio. Update: 12/08 “Ridge”, Sold. . . . . #throwbackthursday #tbt #artcollection #artspacenc #light #earlywork #openstudio #contemporarypainting #florida #longboatkey #gulfcoast #dtraleigh #downtownraleigh
I have an 8 ft table at the #artspacenc Holiday Market this Saturday in Raleigh 12/8 from 11-5pm (it’s inside so you won’t be cold!) I wanted to make sure I filled the table up properly so I did a “test” layout in my apartment while Luna the cat “helped.” In addition to letterpress notecards and prints, I’ll be selling some mixed media artworks, artists books, and steampunk holiday ornaments. Luna😺 and the tv will be staying home 😂. Stop by @artspacenc and say hello if you’re in downtown Raleigh that day. It’s my last craft fair for a while as next year I’m moving onto exiting new (but related) things 💕🤞 Stay tuned! 🎁🎄🤶🎅😻 . . . . . #craftfairdisplay #holidaycraftfair #holidaymarket #buylocal #raleigh #northcarolina #letterpress #gifts #notecards #letterpressnotecards #artistsbooks #northcarolinacraft #mixedmediaart

"Veiled Promise” 12”x12” Oil on Aluminum. I forgot about this painting for a few months while it was drying with some other work. Yesterday when I rediscovered it, I thought of Christmases long ago and all the laughter, mystery and promise this season always seems to hold.

Free! The Business of the Arts Workshop for all “Artrepreneurs” Thursday, December 6, 2018 6:30pm - 8:30pm Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center McRay Vision Episode #64 https://youtu.be/t2lF8dtik_E Most artists have a desire and ambition to earn a living from the art they do. A majority of the time (and for many artists all of the time), inspiration is a key driving force. A challenge many artists deal with is balancing the inspiration with the business side of their work if they want to earn a living and profit from their art. While being inspired, artists want to establish the right monetary value for their work. For an artist who earns their living from their art they need to earn enough to cover the expenses of studio/office, materials, insurance, show fees, etc. Many are faced with the question of establishing different income streams without devaluing their work. Artists have to develop and establish a business acumen. All “Artrepreneurs” are invited to attend The Business of the Arts: A Discussion with artist Eric McRay, of McRay Studios LLC. In this session, “Artrepreneurs” can come listen and learn from Mr. McRay who is more than qualified to answer questions from his unique perspective concerning how to deal with the business side of art. https://youtu.be/t2lF8dtik_E #workshop #free . #business #McRay #mcraystudios #artphilanthropist #artmaestro #ericmcraycom #artspacenc #EricMcRay #workingartist #fulltimeartist #Artspacenc #Remainingjazz #artcollecting #artcollector #ncartist #raleighartist #contemporaryart #McRay #mcraystudios #artphilanthropist #artmaestro
