"Summer Artist Speaker Series: Features Eric McRay"

Summer Artist Speaker Series
Presented by Capital H. Creative

Join and Capital H. Creative at Busy Bee Cafe (upstairs at The Hive) for our three-part Summer Artist Speaker Series. The first installment, featuring artist Eric McRay of McRay Studios, is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 31.

At each event, the artist will talk about their work, inspiration and creative process.  A resident artist at Artspace, McRay was voted Raleigh's Favorite Local Artist of 2011 in Raleigh Downtowner Magazine.  He'll kick off the series by sharing the inspiration behind his collection of summer and coastal paintings. Hear each piece come to life through his stories.

McRay's work will be available for purchase and displayed at The Hive until June 20.  During the event, members of the audience will have a chance to win prizes that include a signed print from the artist, prize pack or a $30 gift card to The Hive.

There will be complimentary appetizers and, of course, The Hive hopes you enjoy their robust beer and cocktail selection.

Don't miss this special evening with a local artist, great food and opportunities to win cool prizes!

Future dates of the series are June 28 and July 26. These dates are subject to change.

About the series
