Before and after the tour, guests are invited to converse and pose questions while enjoying complimentary Hatchet Coffee and baked goods. Coffee with the Curator is free for museum members and $5 for non-members.
Lenoir-based artist Pete Lupo brings an intimate knowledge of wildlife, their habitat, and their interaction with mankind. Growing up around his grandparents' farms in rural southeastern North Carolina, he was rewarded with an awareness of the simple things of life. How a change in light can reveal color and form in everyday objects that so often go unnoticed, learning along the way that sometimes we must slow down in order to really see. “Shared Spaces: Wildlife Wood Sculptures by Pete Lupo” features seven of his latest hyper-realistic woodcarvings of animals and wildlife “sharing space” with objects like old tin cans and frayed hats.
Coffee with the Curator is a monthly program where guests are invited to converse and pose questions while enjoying complimentary coffee and sweets.
This event is free for museum members and $5 for non-members.
