Paintings by Sherri Stewart and Robert Rankin as well as work by other artists are on display at Roundabout Art Gallery in Raleigh on Friday, March 20, 2017. The gallery will be closing permanently after a last celebration during April's First Friday event.

When the artists behind Roundabout Art Gallery came together eight years ago they were looking to create a space to create and lift up fellow art and artists while making an impact on their community. “We have held special fundraising events for Arts Access, a group that encourages and enables persons with disabilities to have full access to arts programs, raised thousands of dollars for supplies for local high school art departments, Habitat for Humanity, and the Food Bank just to name a few,” said Anna Ball Hodge, one of the founding gallery owners.
Those talented creators and art patrons at Roundabout Art Gallery will close their doors next month. “We have had a great run not only with our own 25 collective artists ranging in age from 22-93, but we also featured different guest artists every month.” said Hodge.
A prolific and accomplished artist herself, Hodge assures that although the physical space at 305 Oberlin Road in Raleigh is closing the artists and creators will go on making and sharing their talents with the community.
The end will come with fanfare as the gallery plans to “go out with a bang,” according to Hodge. On Friday, April 7 the artists will come together one last time for a final First Friday to hold a big party. “We are so appreciative for the support we have received from the Triangle.”
