The Arts Council of Moore County (ACMC) and Cox’s Double Eagle Harley-Davidson are excited to present the art exhibit, Art of the Tattoo: A Living Canvas on September 1-29, 2017 at ACMC’s Campbell House Galleries in Southern Pines, NC. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Tattoos have been a part of American culture since the mid-1800s, and in other parts of the world for centuries. Such body art has been a symbol of rebellion and taboo, making it a misunderstood art form. More and more, they are becoming mainstream as a fashion accessory for both men and women. Beyond the skin, tattoos are personal marks for remembrance, unique mementos on human canvas. No matter the motivation, the talent required to render quality tattoo is undeniable.
Using photos by Tim Sayer of Sayer Photography, this art exhibit will showcase some fine examples of tattoos and the stories of the people who have them. In addition, the show will contain artwork by tattoo artists from such tattoo businesses as Valhalla Tattoo & Gallery.
Whether or not you have tattoos, the Arts Council’s goal is to involve the entire community in a fun and unique art exhibit that everyone can enjoy.
