In January, we reported on the move by letterpress shop and art gallery Horse & Buggy Press from downtown Durham to near Duke's campus, where proprietor Dave Wofford hopes to synch with Broad Street neighbors, such as Craven Allen Gallery and Joe Van Gogh, to spark an arts-and-social destination outside of the downtown loop. In the handmade Horse & Buggy mode, the space was furbished by local tradespeople, from Ben Galata's "pierced joinery door pulls" to Marc Smith's "museum quality furniture pieces and shelving displays," as lovingly detailed by Wofford. Now the space is reopening as Horse & Buggy Press and Friends, effectively absorbing Wofford's former Bull City Arts Collaborative coworking space. At Thursday's grand opening, get your first look inside, which will be decked out with works by more than twenty Southeastern painters, printmakers, photographers, textile artists, garment makers, glassworkers, potters, carpenters, jewelry makers, and metalworkers. Regular gallery hours begin in May (Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.). Starting in June, a monthly open house from 5 to 8 p.m. aims to make Second Thursdays a thing. —Brian Howe
