On the last Friday of every month, except December, downtown Hillsborough puts on a Last Fridays Art Walk to showcase local artists, musicians and exhibits. The September art walk will take place on Sept. 27 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
The Last Fridays Art Walk is a way for local artists to share their exhibitions and sell their pieces. The event features several art organizations, many of which are well-established and have participated for years, said Torey Mishoe, executive director of Hillsborough Arts Council.
“Everybody is responsible for their own exhibitions,” Mishoe said. “It’s a lot of fun; it’s kind of like a big block party."
These include the exhibits by Margaret Lane Gallery, Yonder: Southern Cocktails and Brew and the mayor of Hillsborough himself, Tom Stevens, who has a gallery downtown.
Margaret Lane Gallery presents a new exhibit at the art walk each month. For September, Margaret Lane Gallery is presenting an exhibit called “Art for the Soul.” Mary Knox, co-owner of Margaret Lane Gallery, said the gallery will feature pieces created through a variety of mediums, including oils, photography, acrylics, collage, stained glass, jewelry and more.
