October First Friday at TRAX-“Fly North” by Chantelle Marie
First Friday’s are back at TRAX for the winter season and you know what that means!! Gorgeous art, great eats from Friar Tucks Hoagie House and TRAX, live rocking music with the Casey Smith Project and HooDoo beer on tap!
Our featured artist, Alaskan-based Chantelle Marie, has been scribbling illustrations since before she can remember—However, it wasn’t until she dabbled in acrylics in the Summer of 2017 that she discovered her passion for painting and an avenue to fully express herself artistically. A self-taught artist, Chantelle brings together elements of nature, design, and emotion to create unique and whimsical acrylic paintings. She believes that art is a way of one soul speaking to another—so it is with bright colours, bold designs, and an abstract, painterly style that she seeks to evoke joy and wonder in the hearts of those who gaze upon her work; the same emotions that the beauty of this world and brushstrokes on a canvas stir within her soul as she creates.
CASEY SMITH PROJECT is a three piece indie-rock band based out of Fairbanks, Alaska. Their music consists of intricate guitar looping, soulful vocal melodies and rhythmic drum beats. They draw their musical influences from bands like Modest Mouse, the Black Keys to Radio Head.
