Weekend: Art in Cary

Cary, NC – It’s so hard to choose among all the events on the Calendar. This week, we’ll focus on a few art exhibits around town. All are free.

Page Walker: Off the Tracks

This is a two-person exhibition of surprising landscapes.

J.J. Raia makes photographs that, quite frankly, look like paintings. For Crabapple in Spring Bud (above), the artist said that the “image was taken on one piece of film exposed 16 times. Each exposure was at a large f-stop to minimize depth of field and focused on different distances within the frame to give the image a more painterly look.”

Nancy Hughes Miller, whom we’ve covered in a previous story, paints colorful landscapes that seem to capture a magical quality of light. We are big fans of her work.
