FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4

CAITLIN CARY & GESCHE WÜRFEL: RALEIGH REDUX

In complementary but contrasting ways, Caitlin Cary and Gesche Würfel are both artists whose medium is place, as you can easily compare at this dual Artspace exhibit, Raleigh Redux. Cary, who has been playing music and making art in Raleigh for more than twenty years, was awarded a Regional Emerging Artist Residency by Artspace last year. She'll show her unique fiber art, in which recognizable Raleigh buildings are depicted in repurposed upholstery sewn to paper. More than just an aesthetic, the style responds to a modern Raleigh which is in a state of transformation as buildings and blocks reknit themselves into new, development-driven patchworks. Würfel, meanwhile, is a native of Germany who moved here in 2009; she brings an outsider's (and an urban planner and sociologist's) eye to Southeast Raleigh in new photographs of domestic and commercial spaces in various states of decay, supplemented by drawings made on bus rides from Durham to Raleigh during her own Artspace residency. The exhibit is a fractured but coherent diptych of a city in a state of flux, and after this opening reception, it runs through November 26. —Brian Howe
