For September, we’re continuing our artist exhibition series and welcoming back Chamber Music Raleigh this upcoming First Friday at the shop. With great live music, beautiful locally made jewelry, and the best wine by the glass on your First Friday art crawl, you’ll want to put us in your Friday night plans.

We’ll have more details next week, but here are some of the highlights:

Chamber Music Raleigh: 7-9pm

Chamber Music Raleigh will be on hand entertaining you with classical and show tune favorites performed by Executive Director Marianne Breneman and Board Members Phil Amalong, Liz Frazer, and Dana Friedli, and Katie Miller and Ariana Dewar.

Samantha Clarke: 5:30-8pm

A North Carolina native and ECU alumn, Samantha shows her fun, whimsical and fantastical side through her metalworking and hand-made jewelry. “Jewelry design is all about presenting one’s personality to the world through body ornamentation.” We’re excited to have her in the shop to show off her work and to sell some of her beautiful pieces.
