M.C. Escher

This weekend Luke and I headed out to the North Carolina Art Museum to see their exhibit The Worlds of M.C. Escher: Nature, Science, and Imagination. It was a rainy Saturday afternoon, so we knew it would be packed but holy shit – it was insane! I overheard a docent saying there had been 1,067… Read More

Muse Masquerade & More!

Last weekend we had a great time at the Muse Masquerade, a fundraiser for local art gallery/space The Carrack. They did a great job pulling in a bunch of different performers/artists, and there were some pretty cool costumes to be found in the sold-out crowd.

Adventures in Authenticity

Recently, that Brene Brown quote has been ringing true in my ears.

Cultivating Personal Practice

The beginning of September is always a little bit rough for me. That gray area transition time between seasons. I get the end of summer blues, even though it’s technically still summer (FYI the equinox is September 23rd). Maybe it’s all the time I spent as a student, or the nature of my job as… Read More

Art vs Craft

Part of what we’re looking to do here at Rabble & Twine is shine a light at what it means to be an artistic/creative real live person in the ever changing landscape of art in our society. Myth bust what it means to be creative in this crazy world. Recently, I was listening to The… Read More
