Sculpting the Muses
In downtown Wake Forest, Art After Hours comes around once a month and the town treasures the artistic creativity and inspiration that it nurtures. When you walk South White Street on the second Friday of each month, you’ll find various artistic media represented in the local shops. There will be wine flowing, refreshments going around, and artists making lifetime connections both with one another and with the general public. The Cotton Company is one local business that will be hosting a new artist during this monthly art walk experience.
Sculptor Allan Weaver will be featuring his series of muses for the April Art After Hours exhibit inside The Cotton Company. Allan began his artistic career as an industrial designer, which still plays an influence in how he creates his sculptures. He says that his muses in particular tend to portray some aspect of humanity. He enjoys combining the mythological concept of the muses with contemporary ideas in order to create his pieces. The sculptures are high fired brown ceramic stoneware and are on a ¼ human scale and are often displayed on pedestals that look like roman columns.
Come to meet Allan Weaver and hear more about his muse collective and his sculpting process at Art After Hours on April 10th, from 6pm-9pm at The Cotton Company. This event is free and open to the public. Mr. Weaver’s muse collective will be on display in The Cotton Company Gallery from April 6th-May 3rd and the muses will be available for purchase.
The Cotton Company is a boutique marketplace, shopping destination and art gallery in the heart of downtown Wake Forest, North Carolina. With over sixty individual businesses and artists, we strive to support small businesses and drive the entrepreneurial spirit of the vendors who reside inside.
