Sadie and I went to the M.C. Escher exhibit in Raleigh at the North Carolina Museum of Art a couple days ago. Very comprehensive collection on display with I believe 130+ pieces. It covered his whole career with early sketches, linoleum cuts, wood carvings, and even the simurgh his father brought him that was used in a few of his pieces. I have always been fascinated by his use of perspective and the amazing detail he works into each piece. Several pieces I had never seen before and several pieces I knew were completely new to me in their original formats. The exhibit is only open for a few more weeks until January 17, so get out if you have interest before it it gone.
No trip to Raleigh is complete without a meal and we tried Guasaca for the first time. It is a Venezuelan arepa restaurant and is has been consistently rated the best cheap eats in Raleigh on Yelp for a while now. I had the signature pork and Sadie created her own version of what she described as a Wrong Doug (reference Moe’s). Excellent meal for a very good price and the line went from two people to out the door while we ate.
