There is a significant artistic presence in the Capital City. If you’ve visited the various downtown galleries on First Fridays, you are already aware of the creativity that resides in the Triangle. Annual festivals like SPARKcon hosted by the Visual Art Exchange give local artists a platform to share their talents with large audiences. The Visual Art Exchange is gearing up to host its Ignite Creativity Conference this June. From visual artists to filmmakers this conference is designed for everyone. When it comes to art you sometimes have to step outside the box and take a non-traditional path to becoming the best. To educate us on how Ignite can put a spark in your creativity is Ms. Rachel Herrick.
