Opening First Friday, and up for the month of July, VAE will host the dual exhibition Under Pressure, featuring both PRINT + PERFORMANCE art.
During First Friday, Nick Osetek will be at #VAERaleigh carving a linocut from his Subie Piston Press. Yes, you heard right. Additional pop-up performances will take place during the evening, as well.
First Friday is a free self-guided tour of downtown Raleigh's cutting edge cultural hot spots. Local art galleries, art studios, alternative art venues, and museums stay open late the first Friday of every month to welcome thousands of art-seeking enthusiasts downtown.
The month-long exhibition will consist of a performance show, where each day a different artist will perform for the duration of the exhibition. As well as the print show, where artists will show work that was created under the pressure of the press, as well as work produced using a ink, run, repeat procress.
