First Friday Reception + Exhibit: The Art of Kevin Peddicord: Pop Culture Portraits

The art of Kevin Peddicord is rich with narrative and iconic figures from pop culture. Full of emotion and always story-filled, Kevin's masterful oil paintings on canvas illustrate the human experience with detailed scenes and often convey a tinge of comedy. His subjects cross multiple genres from film to literature and take us through various decades. The Raleigh-based artist will exhibit his original portrait paintings of well known and not-so-well-known iconic people. Join Kevin and his co-host Thea Fotiu Howell, The Artist's Concierge for an interactive and entertaining reception full of portrait-making (where you're the subject!), pop culture, soda pop, Pinot, and plenty of popcorn.
