SHIMMER: The Art of Light

SHIMMER: The Art of Light

SHIMMER is a free, one-night event featuring illuminated art installations, projections, and programmatic components covering a 5 block radius on the border between Chapel Hill and Carrboro, NC. SHIMMER is the first collaborative event of its kind, taking place on a 2nd Friday ArtWalk and turning the area into a de facto art gallery.

SHIMMER is a compelling, impactful event that creates a cultural bridge between Chapel Hill and Carrboro, focusing on the creativity of our region, and impacting the economies of both towns. The event will span from Robeson St in Chapel Hill to Artscenter in Carrboro and bring visitors from throughout the Triangle and beyond. With a draw outside of the region, SHIMMER will produce a positive economic impact on local hotels, restaurants, and retail businesses around the event footprint.

Artist Andy Stilton at Weaver St Realty

Drawing & Giclées at Weaver Street Realty

Andy Silton
asilton@gmail.com
Andy is a retired money manager, who managed the public pension plan for the State of North Carolina. His art is derived from decades of doodling in his business notebooks. Three years ago, a close friend suggested that Andy buy some color pens and paper and try drawing. A year later another friend suggested that Andy try his hand at watercolor.

His drawings and paintings usually begin the same way. Andy gets an overwhelming urge to draw or paint without much of idea about the subject or form. He tries to get into the same mindset he had during business meetings and conference calls. 

His work has also been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Walter Magazine, and on CBS Sunday Morning. In 2012, selected pages from his businesses notebooks were displayed at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in an exhibit entitled “Meditations on Money Management.” In 2015, he also exhibited works at St. Philips for an exhibit entitled “Journeys.”

You can see all his work at:

Featured Artist Shannon Bueker at WomanCraft

Shannon Bueker of Not Now Kato! Studio is WomanCraft's featured artist for the Second Friday Art Walk on October 14.

As Shannon reflects, "The life we have is a gift. It is a wonder to me that it comes in so many shapes, sizes and forms. My drawing and painting have long been motivated by the need to respond to the beauty I see around me. The amazing grace of trees and plants, the fluidity of animals, the outrageous colors of the earth, all provoke me to paint and draw. I rarely have a plan. I paint, draw, layer, dance the line around the canvas or page, then wait for who or what shows up."

Come see Shannon's work and meet the artist at the 2nd Friday ArtWalk  WomanCraft is located at 360 East Main Street in Carrboro.

Reception for artist Janice Rieves at Weaver Street Realty during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. 

Artist Statement: I am, among other things, a multimedia artist and professional gardener living on a bit of land in the semi wilds of Chatham County with my partner, Joe. I am happily and gratefully surrounded by a community of generous and creative souls. I've had an ongoing exploration and conversation with pattern, color and light that I find satisfaction expressing in glass mosaic. I find inspiration in nature's forms and flows, ancient symbols, sacred geometry, energy dynamics made visible, art and architecture. It is my joy to share my work with you. Follow Janice on Facebook at Janice Rieves Art.
