Found Items in Nature Gives Former Artist New Founded Creative Spark
When visitors think of Historic Downtown Wake Forest, cute little shops and personable shop owners come to mind. Art After Hours, which occurs every second Friday of the month, gives visitors to the area another dose of the small town scene. During Art After Hours, shop owners host local artists and musicians and give them a chance to shine. This night of phenomenal talent creates a friendly neighbor vibe in the town and allows the town’s mantra of shopping small and supporting local businesses come full circle. The Cotton Company on South White Street is one such place that will host two special guests during March Art After Hours.
The Cotton Company will host jeweler Leigh Griffin on March 13th during Art After Hours. Leigh Griffin is a local jeweler who used to be a painter and photographer. After she graduated from college, she took a break and decided to pick up jewelry later in life. Her skills as a painter still influence her work as a jeweler today, for she focuses on color and shape and often likes to use natural objects to create a wearable piece.
Accompanying Miss Griffin’s art exhibit will be the musical stylings of Pat Tyler. Pat Tyler is a local acoustic musician who loves to cover 70s and 80s era music. She has a smooth, folkish sound that is reminiscent of the bluegrass genre artists who are popular in North Carolina.
On March 13th, from 6pm-9pm, enjoy art, live music, and refreshments at The Cotton Company in Historic Downtown Wake Forest. The Miss Griffin’s March exhibit will hang in The Cotton Company Gallery from March 9th-April 5th and will be 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.
