6/11-6/12: What’s Happening in the Triangle This Weekend

HAPPY PRIDE to all my girls, gays, and theys – I know it’s been a tumultuous time with Apex Pride this year, but it looks like Equality NC has swooped in to restore Drag Story Hour to the lineup. In addition to Apex Pride, there’s a bunch of other cool stuff going on this weekend. 

So let’s lather on some sunscreen (safety first, y’all) and stay hydrated for some fun in the sun!

Happy almost summer to you all!

I wanted to invite you to a mini expo of my small, 12 piece forest collection. I have never done a collection featuring trees in the past and I’m excited to share these pieces! I wanted to do a small exhibit for local people to view in person.

Wine and happy tree vibes included 🧘🌲

Please share and bring anyone to the expo that’s you’d like!

**The parking lot will NOT be usable during the event, so please park at the public lot across the tracks – thank you for understanding!*
