From their website:

Yes, there will be spray paint.  But the Arts Council's edgy (and even raw) exhibition featuring urban artists goes well beyond graffiti.  Urban Art: Expressions of an Environment includes art from a broad scope of artists from across the country.  The artwork represents urban social commentary, urban rebellious sub-text, use of urban material (sculpture), interpretation of the urban environment, the urban environment as a distinct place and space, and more.

Percy Fortini-Wright  (Massachusetts) is a traditional painter of plein air scenes and classical portraiture, as well as a technician of wild style graffiti letters, tags and bubble letters. He says his inspiration comes from "the beautiful, creative and destructive forces of Mother Nature, and the architecture of the Creator."

Quick, dynamic, expressive and unrefined. Those are the traits Michael Romagano says exemplify his aesthetic. An art instructor at Fayetteville Technical Community College, Romagano says those traits "place instantaneously what resides in the thoughts of the artist through medium and application."

Learn more about these artists and their work during the opening on June 27.  This exhibition will be open for free at the Arts Council and continues through July 19.  (See gallery hours below)
