September 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
ArtWalk is a fun, casual celebration of art and community in downtown New Bern, held every second Friday of each month . It begins at 5pm and usually goes till 8pm–but on warm summer nights, it has been known to go on until 10 o’clock. You’re invited to stroll along the sidewalks, drop in on shops and galleries, and dine at one of many fine restaurants and lively taverns on your way.
Please join us in welcoming Andrea Iladis as our artist of the month.
Once upon a time Swirl started out as a wonderful partnership of two creative spirits, Dana Tuttle & Andrea Iliadis.
Needing an outlet for their obsession with color, they started painting anything they could find, including curbside trash and dump finds.
They were passionate about recycling and reusing materials, transforming them into simple, unique and funky art objects.
They cut their wood & metal individually to create one of a kind pieces.
But since life likes to get in the way sometimes,Dana had to move and now Andrea is continuing in their creative spirit since SWIRL would have never gotten this far without the joint effort of these twobest friends!! ……..
I still enjoy playing around with different kinds of wood and metal and over the last couple of years got inspired to try out some more abstract ideas. I am really excited about doing some bigger pieces in different color combinations.
Email me if you want to come by, I’d love to meet you!
My studio is located in beautiful Carrboro, NC .
