CARRBORO: On Friday, May 9th from 6:00-8:00pm, there will be an opening reception for The ArtsCenter's 21st Annual Community Photography Contest. Participating photographs will be on exhibit in our Nicholson Gallery during the month of May. Winners will be announced at the opening, which coincides with the Chapel Hill/Carrboro 2ndFriday ArtWalk. This year’s photo contest judge is Peter Wilkie.

The 2nd Friday ArtWalk takes place at 28 venues in Carrboro and Chapel Hill from 6:00 - 8:00 pm on the second Friday of every month. It's a great opportunity to explore the many arts venues and businesses in both towns as well as socialize with other art lovers in the community. Many of the galleries will have live music and other art related entertainment.
