Community Color at The Carrack

The Carrack Modern Art, the wonderful, zero commission, gallery space, that you read about so frequently in these pages having fabulous exhibitions, is holding a week long fundraiser.

According to The Carrack’s press release, “Community Color celebrates just that: the colorful community of artists, art-lovers, supporters and visionary individuals in the Durham art community…”

In the past year, The Carrack has hosted twenty-four solo exhibits, ten group exhibits and four open call community shows, plus a huge range of cultural events including film, poetry, music, public readings and more.

The gift that this space and its owner-operators have given our community has immeasurably enriched us all.

Time to give back, Durham.
