The Gallery at SALT Studio is the newest gallery to join Wilmington’s Fourth Friday art trail, a self-guided tour through Downtown’s art spaces from 6 to 9 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month.
Located at 805 N. Fourth St., SALT stands out from the other art walk stops in that it will exclusively exhibit photography.
“When I moved back to Wilmington from NYC,” SALT co-owner and photography Kelly Starbuck said in a Facebook message, “I noticed there were very few gallery shows that were photography related. Since the popularity of photography has risen in the last few years, both Horace (Long) and I felt that fine art photography has been under represented in the Wilmington area. Therefore, we started coming up with ideas of how to shape our photo business. We both wanted to have a photography gallery and we ended up finding just the perfect space to start a photo studio AND gallery.”
Tonight’s Fourth Friday reception features work by Long and Starbuck, or as they themselves, Team SALT. In the future, the two hope to feature a wide variety of work by photographers from near and far.
“Our goal is to exhibit fine art photography by national, international, and local artists. The Gallery at SALT Studio strives to bring thought provoking, aesthetic, photo-based works of art to Downtown Wilmington.”
Stop by SALT 6 to 9 p.m. tonight for their Fourth Friday reception.
