On Sunday, May 18, from 12-7, Rebus Works will host its 2nd Annual Rebus Fest, a celebration of local art and music. Rebus Works is located in historic Boylan Heights, beside one of downtown’s finest views, the Boylan Bridge.
Vendor tables will be setup to feature the work of North Carolina’s own creative personalities. Expect to see paintings by Julie Armbruster, Casey Porn, Kirk Adam, and Gabriella Corter. Corter is also a photographer, as is Michael Traister, known for his fantastic sock monkey dioramas and portraiture. Traister will also have sock monkeys made by Carrie Faye and folk art by Eric Legge. Heather Knight of Asheville will display her porcelain sculptures, which blur the boundary between natural and man-made. Fashion will be represented by apparel from Adam Peele and Ileana Rodriguez of india*romeo. Additionally, Staci Sawyer, Lisa Quatrale, Betty McKim, and Kristen Townsend of Mood Swing will have jewelry on display, and Emily Soldin-Howard will have her beautiful batiks for sale. Mixed media sculpture and/or collage will be shown by Lauren Turner, Joey Howard, and Eddie Taylor of the Loners.
Rebus Fest will play host to a great line-up of Raleigh bands this year. Slated to play:
Posh Nosh Catering, a catering company located downtown off Peace St., will be serving up tasty treats and beers for a suggested donation: fish tacos, roasted corn with cilantro butter, pulled pork sandwiches, gazpacho, and chips & salsa. Raleigh’s favorite frozen treats, Locopops, will be on hand as well. The event is free, so be sure to show some support for the artists and musicians represented.
