Roundabout To Close Doors April 10th

After 6 years, Roundabout art gallery will be closing shop on April 10th. Roundabout's sales and spirits remain high, but the land that the gallery currently sits on has been sold for future housing development. 

Although the physical gallery will close it's doors, the artists who created the collective will continue to creating art and sharing their talents with the Raleigh community. After closing you can check back on this site for further details on the artists whereabouts. 

Roundabout Art Collective will host a final hurrah party the weekend of April 7-9th featuring Bhavana beer, live music by the "Road Hard Band"  and, of course, fresh art! You can find out more details by visiting our event page.

More details about Roundabout's journey and closure are featured in the North State Journal.

Roundabout Supports "Disappearing Frogs Project"

About "Disappearing Frogs"

The Disappearing Frogs Project (DFP) was created In 2013 by Charlotte NC-based artist Terry Thirion. The concept is to bring synergy between artists and scientists to the public, communicating the unprecedented global amphibian decline and potential effects of species extinction. Awareness in the community is being raised; hearts of the public are being touched; and the Disappearing Frogs Project is inspiring people to get involved and to take personal action.

In February 2014, The “Disappearing Frogs Project” came to life with a thirty-day multimedia art installation at the Charlotte Art League in Charlotte, NC. More than a hundred artists responded in support of Terry’s call, contributing over 200 original paintings, sculptures and photos. The month-long event included a 25’ wall of unique frog art, another 100+ pieces of children’s art, scientific discussions led by environmental experts from around the country, and an original puppet show starring a cast of frogs artfully raising environmental issues. It was an instant success!

The Disappearing Frogs Project continues to gain both momentum and support. In 2015 the Disappearing Frogs Project partnered with Amphibian Survival Alliance—the world’s largest partnership for amphibian conservation—to raise awareness of global amphibian declines, inspire people to take personal action to protect these incredible species, while also providing a unique opportunity for artists to support amphibian conservation, education and research

Silversmith Dan Dye Featured in "Our State" Magazine

Dan Dye is featured in the June 2015 edition of "Our State" magazine, with two photos of sterling silver wildflowers. S

Dan Dye describes the feature in his own words: 

"I was invited to submit 2 photographs of my handcrafted sterling silver jewelry for the June edition of Our State magazine.  They are doing a story that celebrates wedding anniversaries and silver is the traditional gift for the 25th anniversary.  One of the editors found my website on the computer and especially liked the dogwood flower pin that I make, since it is the NC state flower.  I brought one that I made especially for this story and also a trillium pin that I had made for my wife, Nancy, for our 25th anniversary in August 14, 1996. Both pieces are featured on pages 174 & 175.  

   I was so pleased and honored to be selected by this beautiful magazine!!  Readers from all over North Carolina & subscribers from elsewhere in the U.S. will now see some of my finest work!"
