Episode 101: Today I talk to Sonya Pfeiffer of the Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC. We talk about the Transparency exhibition which features the work of North Carolina-based glass artists David Patchen, Alex Bernstein, Brent Skidmore, Mark Leputa, Linda Luise Brown and Chris Watts. It goes from January 11 until March 19, 2009.

Episode 101: Today I talk to Ursula Barton about her Jailbreak Studios & Collective, which is an all female group. I first heard about Ursula on Chris Guillibeau’s Side Hustle School podcast, where she talked about her signature Cityscapes; the art she created based upon her hometown, Portland’s skyline. I loved the story so much, I knew I had to get her on my podcast, so through the power of the internet, I reached out & connected!

Episode 100: Today I talk to David French, of David French Originals. David is a local celebrity around Charlotte, building an industry of precise, almost super-realist paintings of Charlotte landmarks. I had the opportunity to go to his studio for an “on-site chat” in what we call the “NoDa” neighborhood [North Davidson]. [I say it’s episode 101, but it’s actually my 100th episode!]
