Hey there, Community on the Cape Fear!
We are currently looking for local artists who’d like to place their artwork on our walls, with a price tag! We aren’t even asking for commission at this time. The Mermaid Point family has a great love of the arts and we thought it’d be a cool idea to showcase local, North Carolina-grown artwork from local North Carolina artists. A brief list of artwork criteria includes, but is not limited to:
- Photography, paintings, mixed-media pieces, and drawings must be framed, mounted, and hangable.
- Artwork should reflect some aspect of local NC life, nature, architecture, people, and culture. We’ll definitely consider art pieces depicting other areas of North Carolina, like beaches and mountains, cities and towns.
- Needs to be “family friendly”. We understand that lots of beautiful and meaningful artwork has sensitive subject matter or tasteful nudity, etc. however, we are a family restaurant so the artwork displayed needs to be accessible to everyone.
- Message us through Facebook with pictures of pieces you’d like us to consider for display, and any questions you might have. Do not post artwork pictures or ask questions on the Mermaid Point “public” timeline, please. Only privately messaged requests will be considered.
Something fun we’ve got coming up: Merlot & VanGo’ will be back on Sunday, March 18th from 3-5pm for another instructional painting class! In this class, we’ll be expertly walked through the steps of painting a glass jar filled with fresh-cut spring flowers. 🌸 🌼 🌷
We’re super excited about that because Merlot & VanGo’ makes sure everyone who attends their classes gets the quality materials, instruction, and the great attitude we expect when we’re in our creative “art-zone”! 🎨 🖌 Art class participants will, of course, be able to order drinks and food while painting too.
Here’s the link to sign up, only $25 per painter! 😉 Merlot & VanGo’ Painting Class Sign-Up
-See y’all later, the Mermaid Point family!
