Tis The Season - Raleigh First Friday, September 6


Labor Day weekend has come and gone.  Fall fashions and football are kicking off ... and this   month's First Friday (September 6) is giving new meaning to tailgating. Considered one of Raleigh's most popular evening escapes, the cooler nights make it a breeze to enjoy the art, dining, museum, and shopping venues.  Think of it as an artistic pep rally - a place to take your out-of-towners before the big game.  Although there are no pig pickin's (except for The Pitt), most galleries and many of the shops offer free refreshments and are open late for revelry.  And the bars and restaurants have plenty of room for your posse (i.e. team).  So kick off your artistic license and pay attention to the fine print (below).  Website 


From Murphy to Manteo at the Nature Art Gallery: The Nature Art Gallery is proud to presentNature Museum Exhibit  studies, sketches, and preliminary drawings by NC artist, Chris Wilson done in preparation for his  "portrait" of North Carolina.

This ongoing work has been underway since 2007 and is scheduled for completion in 2014.  A reception to celebrate this exhibit will take place First Friday, September 6 from 6:30 pm-9 pm.  Exhibition Website

The North Carolina Museum of History is pleased to host a free exhibition (August 23 - Jan 05, 2014) ofKunstler Civil War Painting the artwork of renowned historical artist Mort Kunstler. This show focuses on Künstler's work on scenes from the Civil War and are accompanied by text in Künstler's own words. His meticulously researched and detailed artwork provides a unique glimpse into the war years. It covers the tumult of the battlefield and the everyday drama of the men and women who lived through the turmoil of the most tragic war in U.S. history. Künstler has selected 33 original paintings from his personal collection for the exhibit. One of these Civil War paintings, titled "Capitol Farewell", features the NC State Capitol and will be unveiled especially for the NC Museum of History exhibit.


Illustrator Extraordinaire: Mort Künstler began his professional art career in the 1950s as an illustratorCivil War Images  for adventure magazines, paperback books, and movie posters. Although he is known for his dedication  to authentically portraying even the smallest details in his painting, he is equally skilled in using visual effects and technical ability to bring those stories to life. He followed in the tradition and style of other illustrators like Norman Rockwell and J.C. Leyendecker. The style of his work compares to artists from the 19th century such as Thomas Moran, Winslow Homer and Frederick Church.


Put Your Capital on the Capitol:  On Saturday, September 14, from 11am to Civil War NC Capital     3pm, Künstler will sign prints of "Capitol Farewell" in the Museum Shop, the first venue to have these prints featuring the North Carolina State Capitol.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
