Fayetteville Underground is back, and above ground

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Fayetteville Underground, the gallery that lost its lease in One East Center last year, has a new space, now above ground and still on the square, at 101 W. Mountain St. The gallery celebrates its grand opening at tonight's First Thursday event, with wire sculptures by Joel Armstrong, the gallery's first visiting artist. First Thursday is 5 to 8 p.m.

The new Fayetteville Underground has four galleries, 10 artists studios (visitors are welcome) and 23 artists, all of whom should be on hand tonight. The space once housed a Woolworth’s department store and the Washington Hotel.

FU artists include: David Bachman, Cheri Bohn, William Mayes Flanagan, Jan Gosnell, Mike Haley and Susy Siegele, Teresa Hall, Don House, Becky Johnson, Hank Kaminsky, M.M. Kent, Sharon Killian, Eli Mathis, Martha Molina, Greg Moore, Lisa Jo Outlaw, Ed Pennebaker, Doug Randall, Sheila Richards, Sabine Schmidt, John Sewell, Janis Ward and Hisae Yale.

On September 6, the Fayetteville Underground is celebrating its return to the square. Some highlights of the new location: It’s no longer underground—galleries and studios are at street level.
