The role of self-taught, independent artists in modern art is growing, as recognized in the article, and on resources like this site, and this blog:
The Bull's Head Bookshop (also in Chapel Hill) is indie in spirit and selection -though a University and State institution (since 1925!) without the sweet parking of a true Indie. Flyleaf is wonderful but is one of three Independents in Chapel Hill.
She's amazing!. Everything she does exudes love and good work. She is a great woman and I applaud the article. She deserves it, this and much more! congratulations from Spain!!
Love the photo in this article. Pam Gutlon is as unique, creative, and fun loving as her gallery.
Brandon, thanks for speaking up on behalf of the Internationalist, which is indeed an institution of long standing in Chapel Hill. In fact, we recognized the Internationalist Bookstore with a Citizen Award in 2000, back when it was nearing its third decade in business.
In recognizing indie bookstores in this year's edition of the Indies Arts Awards, we were looking for independently owned stores that sell new, general interest books.
It's our continuing good fortune here in the Triangle that there are, in fact, many other places to buy, borrow and sell books.
You mention FlyLeaf like it is the only independent bookstore in Chapel Hill ("Readers in Chapel Hill are glad that they have an indie bookstore again.") What about Internationalist Books? It's been around since 1981 and yet gets ignored. I-Books has the most diverse selection of books and regularly holds free community events.
Saxapahaw says 'Hello' to NC.
Thanks, Heather and Tom, for your sweat and tears bringing this project together. When Mac Jordan hired our company, BioQuest, to develop the original banker prospectus for the mill renovation in 1996, we really could have used your talent and vision.
As it turned out, Susan and I found more fun in designing the ZipBoat and starting the children's area for the weekly market, than anything else.
We should not forget to thank Mac, Carter and their family for their perseverance and drive to see this through.
The tornado that ripped off the mill roof in 1994 was not the end but the beginning: I look forward to what the next 20 years will bring, here in "Sxphw, where the Triangle meets the Triad".
Please continue to keep me informed about your next exhibitions, beatutiful and colorful quilts.
the indy let the cat out of the bag. it is a fine cat.
Thank you Indy Weekly for honoring the generous spirit of all those who make the magic happen the first Saturday of June. There is no "I" in BEAVER.
We say "act like a beaver and give a dam".
here is a sample of some beaver talent:
Andrew: The Geer is now Motorco Music Hall. Check out their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Durham-NC/Th… and note the July 5 post: "A change is on the way. In the next couple of days we will be unveiling our official name along with logos, graphics, an actual website, etc. Watch this space!"
All hail the fabulous Fishscenta! Glad her photo made it in.
I thought the new Durham location was to be called "The Geer". Or is the "Motorco Music Hall" the name of the venue within The Geer?
Belvis in action at the 2007 pageant:
The entire last paragraph...
"C'mon, man, do you ask The Beatles that? How can I answer that if you have the nerve to ask it? But I will say that you're the Independent Weekly. You, of all these people, should understand how frustrating it can be to care about culture here. And I'm not just talking about Raleigh. People in Durham and Chapel Hill seem to think there is no art in Raleigh, and those towns are full of the same smug moneybags who just want to be left alone and can't stand something like me, drunk after midnight on the side of the road, having a big time. Arrest them, not me. That's what I say."
Very crude, curt, and entirely well put. This statement very much sums up many of my feelings about how Raleigh is treated, or how it isn't treated.
Common Ground Theatre, Rachel, Jeff and team are such a gift to the community. We and our kids benefit so much from them - wonderful award pick!
Keep the passion guys! Nice plug for local filmmakers!
