WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 14 UCW JUNE 28 - JULY 4, 2023 Cape Fear Studios opens Annual 2D Art Exhibit by ISAIAH JONES Cape Fear Studios is a nonprofit fine arts organization providing op- portunities for visual artists and art patrons to work together in promoting and learning visual arts. It's mission is to involve, educate and enrich Cumberland County and surrounding communities with the opportunity to create and freely view art. Cape Fear Studios provides art studios for rent, a gallery for exhibi- tions of work by member and visit- ing artists, and classroom space for private lessons, workshops or classes. ere is also retail space for visitors to purchase paintings, photographs, sculptures, pottery, wood and glass art, and fine jewelry. Up & Coming Weekly asked two member artists to discuss the latest exhibit which displays work submitted for the Annual 2D Art Competition. Annette Szcezktek and Rose Kenne- dy have been members of Cape Fear Studios for over 10 years each and have seen the show grow over time. When asked what makes this show special Szcezktek says, "All of the art- ists that are part of the show have to be jurored in. Meaning they have to go through a judged selection process, competing with hundreds of other ap- plicants from all over the country." e 2D Competition displays 39 works of art from artists in eight states from California to New York. e exhibit features 2D art in many techniques and styles. e exhibit was judged by North Carolina watercolor- ist Russell Jewell, an internationally acclaimed watercolor artist. Visiting the 2D Competition exhibit is a chance to explore the facility. If you've never been to Cape Fear Stu- dios, you're in for a treat. e studio space is covered with art from several mediums. e work is custom-made and local. "We are the only place I know of lo- cally where you can find everything in here is original art. It's unique, one of a kind," Kennedy said. e Annual 2D Competition exhibit will be on display through July 25. Cape Fear Studios is located at 148 Maxwell Street. e gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information about Cape Fear Studios or the 2D Art Competi- tion exhibit, visit www.capefearstu- dios.com or call 910-433-2896.
