First Friday is free to all patrons, come enjoy Imurj's selection of food, beer, wine, and spirits while supporting local arts! Artist bio: Kai Des Etages is an Abstract Artist based in Raleigh, NC. Aerial photography of natural formations like oceans and rivers, and NASA’s Juno images are where she finds most of her inspiration. Her first exhibition was ‘We Share the Sun’ curated by Perk + Neil. Kai is currently exhibiting her collection Anahata at Imurj in downtown Raleigh from March 1st – March 31st of this year. She has a residency with Azule in Hot Springs, NC coming up in May 2019. Artist statement: This collection is Kai’s expression of what it means to listen to one’s heart. When one begins to open their heart and quiet their mind magic can happen. Magic in the form of joy, understanding, growth, and much more. Anahata invites the audience to immerse themselves in the colors and the flows, open their hearts, and let magic in. To see more of the artist's work, check out their Instagram and website!
