Salon Moxie, located in Raleigh's North Ridge Shopping Center, will debut new works by emerging artist Sean McKinney during an in-salon art exhibit that will run from November 2 to January 2, 2008. The Artist's Reception will be held in conjunction with the city's First Friday Art Walk November 2, from 6-9 p.m.
McKinney, 22, lives in downtown Raleigh but is originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He studied art at Leesville High School in Raleigh and at UNC-Wilmington.
When asked how he would describe his work for the Salon Moxie exhibit, he said, â€œI don't like boxing myself in, especially for this show, which is actually fairly diverse. Some pieces are rather realistic while some are more abstract. There's pastel work, there's painting, there's drawing â€" a whole slew of things I've thrown in.
â€œMy work does two things for me,â€ he continued. â€œOne is sort of a venting â€" an outpour of energy. Then again, it can be more of a meditative thing. Ultimately it comes from a moment when I quit thinking and just let it flow.â€
Salon Moxie is located at 6191-122 Falls of Neuse Road, Raleigh, North Carolina. ###
