Flipbook Show 

When: Fri., Aug. 21 2015


THE CARRACK MODERN ART—The animated GIF is emblematic of the digital age, but it has an analog precursor in the flipbook. Draw one stick figure and you've begun. Draw several more in progressive sequence and you're finished. It's crude animation in the palm of your hand. A group of local artists has revived the low-tech form for this show at the Carrack, where visitors are free to handle the works, flip through them and buy them. A prize for best in show will be awarded at this opening reception, after which the exhibit runs through Aug. 29. Watch the Carrack's website or visit www.flipbookshow.com for pending information on a "live performance of the flipbook show soundtrack." And check out the bottom corners of these calendar pages for a sneak peek at the flipbook fun. 6–9 p.m., free, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 704-213-6666, www.thecarrack.org. —Brian Howe
