This month we asked the downtown art brain Tracy Spencer to do our First Friday coverage. Here is her run down of the best of what Raleigh has to offer, remember to use our Raleigh First Friday Map and Guide. -David Lots of good things to see this month! Seriously- Fall is the best time of year for Raleigh art, and September is looking like a great kickoff.Things not to miss: Flanders: (18 Seaboard) Between Worlds: Recent work by Amy Funderburk. This show looks phenomenal, if just from the card image. The new kid on the block, Flanders is proving to be an incredible gallery. Let’s support it. Lump: This month Lump showcases the kinetic sculpture of CoD professor Dana Raymond - Mechatronic Symphony. Dana’s large scale wooden pieces are always inviting and clever, but this time he is introducing electronic motors. Worth the two block walk. Many More Shows Below the Fold
