Pinta Manta Opening Reception
Pinta Manta will feature large collaborative paintings and neons by Baltimore artists Elena Johnston and William Cashion. Johnston, who holds a BFA & MA from Maryland Institute College of Art, is also an art educator & vintage clothing aficionado. Cashion, an ECU alum with a BFA in painting, is a native of Wendell, NC and is also known as bassist & co-founder of post-wave dance band Future Islands.

Outer Banks local Travis Fowler will also exhibit new mixed media in Pinta Manta. Through balancing control with spontaneity Travis' work explores cause and effect, resulting in vibrating compositions of lines moving through space across imaginary contours. The wavelike compositions, accented with metal leaf, seem to morph as the piece is viewed from various vantage points and light sources, allowing the work to offer the viewer an unpredictable visual experience.
Join us for the special opening reception of Pinta Manta on Friday, June 22 from 6 to 8 p.m.
There will be light hors d'oeuvres, libations and DJ house music. Reception guests will have the opportunity to meet these talented artists. The reception is free and open to the public.
The show will be on display June 22 through July 23 in our upstairs courtroom gallery.
