Local artist Deborah Cavenaugh calling it quits


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) - The following is from Deborah Cavenaugh's website (

She tells a local newspaper that she's closing her gallery at 3114-E Oleander Drive on Friday.

I have been working on a new series of small, multimedia domestic scenes and still lifes.

Home is on my mind these days.

Sometime in the spring or early summer, I will move away to a new, and yet unknown, home. Change brings so many emotions and for me, my emotional life rules my art life. I'm not resisting. I am accepting the transition in both of my worlds.

My home is changing and that is changing my work. I don't necessarily want that, but change is here. It's good and bad, clear and complicated, simple and impossible, frightening and exciting. Everything at once and all together. It is what it is.

Good Luck Deb! I met you

Good Luck Deb!

I met you once recently when I wandered into your incredible shop on Oleander.
You immediately impressed me as a lovely person, quite gifted and full of life!

Continue to embrace it.

Live long and Prosper!
