Framer’s Market and Gallery


 “The Art Zone Group”

 An Exhibition of Collage Works by Local Artists from Duke University’s OLLI Program 

Chapel Hill, NC – Thursday, March 8th 


On Thursday, March 8th from 4 to 7pm area residents are invited to Framer’s Market and Gallery in Rams Plaza for a wine and cheese reception to celebrate the collage works of local artists from Duke University’s OLLI Program, Continuing Education Studies.  

Through techniques of re-purposing, altering images, and using recycled materials, the group has explored nostalgia, cultural imagery, and autobiographical themes in 2-D and 3-D collages.  

The course, led by local artist, Pat Hill, has been a journey into the wonder and mystery of the “found object”, often seeing with new eyes, and, transforming the ordinary things of life into something wonderful and transcendent.

Many of the materials used in the ART ZONE class have been found and purchased inexpensively at The Scrap Exchange in Durham. The Scrap Exchange educates and helps our community re-use, so that less goes in the landfill every year.

 The exhibit can be seen through March 15th.

“All Creatures Great and Small”

Exhibition of Art by Stacy Lewis

Chapel Hill, NC – On Thursday, May 19th from 5pm – 8pm, area residents are invited to Framer’s Market and Gallery in Rams Plaza for the opening of a painting exhibit by Stacy Lewis. Attendees will enjoy wine and snacks while meeting the artist and viewing her aquamedia works on canvas and paper.

Stacy Lewis is a North Carolina artist whose watercolor and acrylic paintings reflect her love of nature, especially animals. While they are built on a solid drawing foundation, their dramatic colors and animated quality make them unique.

Stacy lives on a small hobby farm in Louisburg, where she raises fancy chickens, guinea fowl and miniature dairy goats, all of which appear in her most recent works along with cats, dogs and other, more exotic creatures “great and small”.

Pictures of her paintings (as well as her farm companions) can be found at

On Saturday, September 18 from 4 pm to 7 pm area residents are invited to join the Framer’s Market and Gallery for a special reception honoring nationally acclaimed artist, Raymond M. Byram.  Attendees will enjoy wine and cheese, while meeting the artist and viewing his landscape and serigraph works.

Ray Byram is known for working in a variety of genres, styles and media from abstract to surreal to neo-realism.  Each serigraph that Byram produces involves a tedious process in which he hand-spearates each color directly from the painting and then hand pulls the images.  This involved process takes 4 to 5 months to complete an edition.  Byram has received many national and international awards for his works, which include a myriad of private and corporate collections worldwide.

Now through October 9, Byram will be displaying his oil and palette knife landscapes and serigraphy at Framer’s Market and Gallery in Ram’s Plaza, Chapel Hill. To find out more about Raymond M. Byram, visit: .
