February Art After Hours
Featuring Michael Morrison
The streets are bustling with people. Laughter is all around. All of the shops are open. And there are artists. Several artists. You have just entered Art After Hours, a Wake Forest Downtown event that takes place every second Friday. Art After Hours gives local artists a chance to display their artwork, make new connections, and further their careers as artists. It also gives our community a fun, family friendly event to enjoy each month.
In February, Art After Hours falls on Valentine's Day. The Cotton Company will be featuring artist Michael Morrison. Morrison is originally from Texas, but now lives in the Raleigh area. He grew up in a family of artists, and in his early twenties became an artist himself. Morrison's focus as of late has been bold acrylics on canvas. Abstract art incorporates line, shape, and color to form a cohesive message for the viewer. Oftertimes, abstract artists enjoy leaving the interpretation of their art up to the individual viewers.
Michael Morrison will be exhibiting his Heart Collection in The Cotton Company Art Gallery. This particular collection features bold colors and abstract, and each painting will have a heart placed somewhere on the cavas. Funds contributed from the Heart Collection will go towards the cancer foundation Pretty in Pink. In addition to Morrison's artwork, there will be a special performance by fan favorite TJ Cople, a local saxophone player, for all guests to enjoy and we will be serving red wine and chocolate themed refreshments. Art After Hours on February 14th is the perfect night out on the town with that special someone. Come and spend part of your Valentine's Day with us here at The Cotton Company!
