Sports, team-based or individual, provide confidence, social skills, self esteem and physical activity; but during a 17 year period (July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2017) there have been 489 catastrophic sport-related deaths documented among high school and college athletes in the United States, captured by the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research. There have been 20 events captured among athletes in North Carolina during the same time period.

EXHIBIT: 'Dream In Color'

GIF Horizontal Improved Final Graphic.gif

A joint Guest Artist show of expressive paintings by Andell McCoy and Erin Allen, two regional artists - and friends -  based in Albemarle, NC: 

  • Opening Reception Friday, Nov. 2, 6:30pm-8:30pm

  • Joint Artist Talk, same evening, ClearWater Gallery, 7pm

Statement from Erin and Andell:
Dream in Color is a bright and bold celebration of Color at a time of year when everyone needs it. As artists, we believe strong color inspires positivity and exuberant living. Neutrals, monotones, and dishwater beige need not apply. We are two women finally back on track with what life derailed – rediscovering art and placing creating art at the top of life’s priorities. Art with truth and light and energy. “Wouldn’t it be lovely if people didn’t have to wait until later in life to do what they dream of? We’re back on track and want to share it with the world!"
