The starkness of the cold can bring clarity and focus to the creative process, while the quiet of the season can encourage introspection and contemplation,” SurferToday.com
Cape Fear Studios’ mission is to “involve, educate, and enrich Cumberland County and surrounding areas with the opportunity to create and view art,” according to the Cape Fear Studios website.

Cape Fear Studios and Gallery announces the Annual Cabin Fever Exhibit for 2024. The exhibit will feature emerging and professional artists over the age of eighteen. The artists will present works in the mediums of acrylic, oil, watercolor, painting, hand-crafted wood art, hand-crafted jewelry, fiber, decoupage, photography, pottery, glass artworks and drawing from mixed media. The original art pieces are for sale to the public.

“It is not art you are buying from an artist/maker, you are buying more than an object or painting: you are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks, and months of pure joy. You are not buying a thing, you are buying a piece of the heart, part of the soul, a moment of someone’s life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are enthusiastic about,” said Shelly Corbett, photographer.

The Cabin Fever Exhibit enhances the community on the micro, meso and macro levels. The artists can view innovative and creative techniques among various mediums and build relationships with other artists. The public can experience enhanced perspectives, ideas, and values concerning reality.
“It is a good opportunity to see what other artists are doing. It is beginning to form a relationship with the art community. People enjoy it. We usually have a good turnout. The people are being creative at home. It is an opportunity to share one’s work. We enjoy doing community exhibits a couple of times a year,” shares Pandy Autry, Cape Fear Studios and Gallery Board President.
