Fringe Art Show 2017

I am excited to be hosting the second annual OC Fringe Art Show at my place in Efland!

Date: Saturday November 4th, from 10-5. Free admission.

This boutique art event will be held concurrent with the first Saturday of the Orange County Open Studio Tour and will feature a group of local and regional artists showing and selling their works in a country setting that’s about 10 minutes from Downtown Hillsborough.

Participating artists will be of the “fringier” variety, leaning toward self- taught and folk art, use of salvaged/ reclaimed materials, and in some cases, just fringe-y personalities!

The site is my work place and also home to a tiny house colony of three- my mom’s, my daughter’s, and mine. (Houses sized 12′ x 28′, 8′ x 12′, and 12′ x 12′, respectively.)

Tours of the grounds, studio and tiny houses will be available. There are 3 wooded acres with a creek path, and some open space for kids to play in too!

There will be live acoustic music throughout the day and comfort food available for sale as well. Comfort food prepared by my brother and my mom.

Address: At the ivegotahammer shop: 2016 Hall’s Mill Rd, Efland, NC 27243
