Make New Friends, But Keep the Old, One is Silver, the Other Gold. Do you remember singing this song while growing up? Rocky Mount has a new talented friend in Caitlin Cary who has found her way to Rocky Mount. Her art tells me she understands the “Silver & Gold” nature of preservation and revitalization. She has created another way to preserve architecture through her Needle Print Art.
The Program Director at Art Space in Raleigh, NC suggested Caitlin take a look at The Imperial Center because of an up-coming juried exhibit she might consider entering. While in Rocky Mount, she drove downtown and found the amazing architectural assets along Main Street and in the historic areas beyond. Thus began what Caitlin calls, “A wired romance.” There are a lot of people in the business of encouraging these wired romances; reimagining new uses for old buildings.
It won’t surprise you that one of Caitlin’s Needle Print Art piece was accepted in the juried Exhibit which begins June 1 – September 5. There is an Artist Reception and Award presentation on June 19 from 2:00-4:00 pm. I fully expect her work to receive an award. Be sure to put this event on your schedule. Caitlin and her husband hope to one day move to Rocky Mount. We can’t wait. Keep an eye out for her wandering around with a camera looking for her next building to turn into another fabulous Needle Print.
