Please visit the News & Events page for info on current and upcoming gallery exhibits. This page is a description of the gallery and includes highlights from past exhibits and events.
Horse & Buggy Press And Friends is the 500 square foot art and craft gallery I curate at the front of the design and letterpress studio. Visitors will find work by over 30 established artists and craftspersons in a variety of media. All artists are from the Southeast and over half are from the Triangle.
In addition to museum quality framed works, visitors will find a bevy of affordable unframed works in the flat file drawers and print bins; as well as pottery, glass, jewelry, fibers, small-scale sculpture, prints, and much more. There is a binder with info about the artists (many of whom are active doing commissioned work for clients).
New work constantly rotates in, and we rotate solo and thematic exhibits on the “main” gallery wall which are usually the centerpiece of salon style events. A bookstall carries artist monographs and exhibit catalogues from places like The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, South Carolina and Candela Gallery in Richmond, Virginia; as well as interesting literary works by other small presses (Yoffy Press, Zatara Press, and artists publishing their own art books in exciting ways (including Sean Kernan and Lori Vrba). Basically interesting work you won’t find at most bookstores.
The gallery is a fun place to check in on regularly when you are looking to appoint a home or office, or find a gift for a dear friend or loved one. Our block of Broad Street is also home to several restaurants, Joe Van Gogh coffeehouse, Craven Allen Gallery and House of Frames, Hot Headz Hair Salon, and the Green Room Pool Hall so you will be rewarded for going up and down the block.
We host receptions every two months or so (usually on Saturdays from 5:00–7:00 as a double header with Craven Allen Gallery down the block) often with guest musicians, and always with adult beverages.
Occasionally, we host special pop up exhibits, film screenings, artist talks, literary readings, and give tours to groups. Please let me know if you would like to be on the newsletter email list. (expect six to eight newsletters per year).
Monday–Friday 10 to 3ish at bare minimum
Saturdays 11 to 2ish
*we are often open more than this; if the sandwich board is out front that means come on in.
