Event Description

Seven New Bern, NC artists will bring their work to the Annie D. Boykin Gallery of the Wilson Arts Center for an exciting exhibit of diverse styles and mediums titled Uncommon Ground: Seven New Bern Artists. These artists chose a primary meeting point at a local artist's materials store, owned by a member of the group, Ed Macomber. As they bonded, several of the "regulars" formed a group they called the "New Bern Realists". They represented a serious group of artists who desired to share common interests and ideas. This unique exhibition is made up of some of this original group, with several others who were "juried" into the show by their peers. Each artist met the requisite of being professional, and local to the lovely eastern North Carolina town of New Bern. Opening day events on March 7, 2013, all at no charge, include an informal Artist Talk forum at 5:00pm, followed by a reception from 5:30pm-7:30pm. The exhibit is on display through April 13, during regular gallery hours of Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm and Saturdays, 10am-3pm.
