July Features Sue McGlothlin Photography
North Carolina is booming with artistic talent. Growing in popularity for its small town experience is the town of Wake Forest. While Raleigh hosts artists on First Fridays, Durham hosts artists on Third Fridays, and Cary hosts forth Fridays, the Historic Downtown of Wake Forest holds their own community art walk, Art After Hours, every second Friday. What is usually a fairly quiet street in the evenings will be filled with the sounds of live music and the sights of painting and photography, like that of Sue McGlothlin Photography at The Cotton Company.
Sue McGlothlin is certainly not a new face to downtown Wake Forest. She has been a vendor inside The Cotton Company for almost one year, displaying some of her award-winning slow exposures and bringing joy to the customers each time she comes to work her booth. Originally from Alaska, Sue explored photography for the first time in high school while working in a dark room. Sue made her way to North Carolina in 2010 via California. When she moved to North Carolina, she began to “wear [her] old camera out” taking in the various wonders of her new home through a viewfinder. Her photography seeks to display both the history and beauty of North Carolina and surrounding areas. Her exhibit will be displayed in hand crafted frames, made by her loving husband. These featured pieces are ready to hang but she also offers a collection of matted prints and greeting cards.
Sue McGlothlin’s exhibit will hang inside The Cotton Company Art Gallery July 7-August 2nd in downtown Wake Forest. It will feature only photographs shot in North Carolina. The Cotton Company will host an artist reception during Art After Hours on July 11 from 6pm-9pm where guests can meet Sue and admire her collection. This reception is Free and Open to the Public. Refreshments will be served and to compliment Sue’s North Carolina themed exhibit we will serve a taste of our favorite NC wines.
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.
