Carolina Folkways 

When: Sept. 18-Nov. 14 2014
MONDAY, SEPT. 29 As the Triangle and Triad grow more metropolitan, North Carolina has been upping its fine-arts profile in recent decades, but its status as an incubator of folk music and folk art goes back much further. That rich heritage is celebrated in this show of documentary photographs at Raleigh's municipal gallery. Carolina Folkways features the work of Titus Brooks Heagins, who specializes in photographing folk musicians, and Michael Schwalbe, who immortalizes N.C. artisans in dynamic photos with interview excerpts. Artist Gabrielle Duggan ties art and craft together with Case Study, an installation in fiber and thread. After this opening reception, which coincides with the launch of IBMA's World of Bluegrass Week and features live music by Hank Smith and Lindsey Tims, the show is on view through Nov. 14. 5 p.m., free, 222 W. Hargett St., 919-996-3610, www.facebook.com/blockgallery. —Brian Howe
