Conversation with Carrie Knowles

This article written as a guest blogger for Triangle Artworks, is the second in a series of “Conversations With”  members of the creative community in the Triangle who are thinking big, working hard and making a difference in our Region.

I met Carrie Knowles at her studio off Bloodworth Street in downtown Raleigh. The quiet neighborhood and her comfortable studio was the perfect spot to catch up with this busy writer and artist. We talked about her writing, visual art, the importance of collaboration, and her most ambitious and exciting project to date, the Cary Cross Currents Chamber Music and Arts Festival.

A Conversation with Jeff Polish from The Monti

This article written as a guest blogger for Triangle Artworks, is the first in a series called “ A Conversations With” highlighting members of the creative community in the Triangle who are thinking big, working hard and making a difference in our region.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Polish on a warm sunny day in June. The first thing he told me, in response to me asking “How ya’ doing” was that he had just quit his day job as a biology teacher to pursue his dream job of telling stories. His show, the uber successful The Monti, is officially his full time job and he couldn’t be more delighted, prepared and ready to take it on.
