An up-close-and-personal view of North Carolina's best artists.. In Short Roam this labyrinth of galleries and studios, complete with 12-foot ceilings and winding staircases, and you're likely to find a sculptor working on a new piece or a portrait artist putting the finishing touches on a painting. This isn't your everyday gallery: It is literally the artist's studio. Styles range from traditional to alternative to amazing. Not all artists affiliated with Artspace work in-house--many live around the state.
