Cape Fear Studios Displays Their Annual "Cabin Fever" Exhibit

The non-juried exhibit highlights work from community members


Paintings featured in Cape Fear Studios' "Cabin Fever" Exhibit


Fayetteville, N.C. Cape Fear Studios (CFS) recently opened their annual Cabin Fever art exhibit, which features work from Fayetteville residents. We spoke with CFS’s board president, Pandy Autry, to discuss the exhibit, the works featured, and how members of the community can engage with CFS.



What’s the inspiration behind exhibit?

We were looking to invite artists in the community to have a place to get their art out and experience being in a show. We have professional artists who participate as well. But a lot of these people are just beginning and excited about their art. It’s kind of neat. A lot of people get excited about being in a show!


We do not jury this show. It's open to the community and the only stipulation is that you must be 18 or older. We also have a size stipulation so that we can exhibit more pieces. 



How many works are featured in this?

There are 26 works featured in this gallery, mostly paintings. Artists can submit up to two pieces.




How can Fayetteville residents engage with Cape Fear studios?

Other than our exhibits/gallery space, we offer different classes for people to take. We have a social media presence on Facebook and Instagram. We also have a website and we try to keep it updated as far as events go. And, of course, people can always call us.  



The public can view Cabin Fever for free until it closes on March 19th.
