What’s on display around Wilmington this weekThe Cape Fear is never short on beautiful art work. From Hampstead to Carolina Beach, Wrightsville to downtown Wilmington, galleries overflow with inspired paintings, sculptures and photographs.

“Flesh and Bones”
Closes Sat., Jan. 19th
523 S. Third St.
Local artists Darren Mulvenna and Shannon Limburger present “Flesh and Bones,” introducing new bodies of work that feature what is not about death or gore, but the raw beauty of what is under the skin. As they pull back the coverings of humans, they so tackle the bodies of animals—creature also from butterflies to a red fox and more.
