A Sneak Preview –
Welcome to the Village Art Circle!
Envisioned by artist JJ Jiang, the Village Art Circle came into being April 1, 2013, in Ashworth Village on Academy Street in the heart of downtown Cary, NC, in Chambers Arts! former retail location. JJ, a resident of Cary for over 15 years, has been an active participant in the art community in the area.

He is a long time member of Artspace in Raleigh, His art work has been exhibited in many venues in the state of North Carolina. The Village Art Circle aspires to be a good standing member in the art community in the Triangle area –to be a place that fosters one’s creativity and confidence as an artist; a place that provides both instructional and non-instructional opportunities including workshops and classes; a place that offers great opportunities for guest and member artists to exhibit their work; and finally, a place that for artists to exchange their creative ideas, share artistic endeavors, critique one another’s work and gather for social activities to bolster the artist community of Cary. Though the gallery/studio is still under transition, some art classes are already underway.
The Village Art Circle currently invites artists with quality art work to apply for membership, as we strive to foster an energetic and creative environment for members, students and the general public. The Circle has a non-biased perspective toward arts of different media, subjects and styles.

Carol Owen: ”Altered book artists like to say there are no rules.
To that I would add, just a chance to play and have fun. In this workshop we will use collage and embellishment to turn old books into interactive works of art.
Each student will make a reference book so they have a permanent record of the techniques shown. I will demonstrate various ways of doing backgrounds, how to get color and texture on a page. We will do pockets, slits and pull-outs, niches, and doors, and many different kinds of pop ups. I will discuss glues and paints, and the types of books that work best for this art form.
I will have examples of my altered books with me. This class is suitable for all levels.”
