Chapel Hill, NC, July 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- 3 Birds Marketing, a Chapel Hill-based automotive marketing software developer, is proud to announce the opening of its new community art gallery during The Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership’s 2nd Friday ArtWalk in Chapel Hill/Carrboro. For the premiere event, 3 Birds assembled an exhibition of original pieces by Chapel Hill artist Matthew Szymanski.
3 Birds celebrated the gallery opening with a special reception from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm on July 11, 2014. The gallery is located in the lobby of 3 Birds’ Chapel Hill headquarters at 505-B West Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC 27516. Unless otherwise stated, pieces are available for sale on an individual basis and can be picked up at the end of the hanging period.
Community support has been a driving focus for 3 Birds Marketing founders Layton and Kristen Judd since the company’s inception. “The one-of-a-kind community in Chapel Hill was a natural fit for 3 Birds,” says Kristen Judd, CEO. “We’re proud to take every opportunity to help that community grow, from transforming our former location into Launch Chapel Hill to providing this platform for local artists. The wide range of voices on display during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk made it the perfect choice for unveiling this new venture.”
3 Birds carefully considered a number of options before partnering with Szymanski for the opening exhibition. The artist, a Chapel Hill resident, contributed a vibrant selection of pieces showing his interest in color theory and playing with viewer preconceptions. “I often incorporate bits of popular culture including iconic objects, brand names, logos and characters,” Szymanski said about his art. “These cultural references allow the paintings to reach out beyond their 4 edges and pull in meaning and messages from the world at large.”
The current Szymanski show will remain in the gallery until August’s 2nd Friday Art Walk. In the future, the Artwalk will serve as the opening for all new exhibitions, including both solo artist shows as well as themed collections in a variety of media. Artists interested in being featured in future exhibitions are encourage to contact Evan Chaisson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
