More stars at Five Points: Pleiades Gallery to open 4/6

Downtown Durham’s Five Points continues to transform in delightful ways. The newest neighbor is a daring enterprise, an art gallery. And not just any kind of gallery, but, according to co-owner Renee Leverty, a “hybrid.” Leverty, a sculptor, and co-owner Kimberly Wheaton, a painter, formed a for-profit LLC for the Pleiades Gallery at 109 E. Chapel Hill Street (between Pizzeria Toro and the Marriott), but they also started a collective of artists to show their work and to staff the space. It’s an arrangement that may help them all to dodge the pitfalls of both types. Currently, the collective includes seven artists working in a variety of media, and Leverty says that the group is looking for three more, probably sculptors, to fill out the roster. For hours, etc., see http://pleiadesartdurham.com.
