We’re excited to announce that the April 4 First Friday Artwalk at Tipping Paint Gallery at 311 West Martin Street, Raleigh NC, will be a special celebration of “all things chicken”.
“Eggistentialism” will kick off the 10th annual Tour D’ Coop. The Tour is an entertaining way to educate the public about raising chickens and urban farming while raising non-perishable food and money for Urban Ministries of Wake County.
The Eggistentialism reception on April 4 will be from 6 pm to 9 pm and feature:
� an exhibition of chicken-related art
� a deviled egg cook-off
� egg-related refreshments
� art raffles
� fun activities for the whole family
The chicken-related art exhibit will be on display until April 26. For additional information or to participate in the exhibit, please contact the gallery at info@TippingPaintGallery.com.


Colorful, eclectic, and original, Tipping Paint Gallery features works ranging from classically inspired to contemporary. Located in the heart of Downtown Raleigh’s Warehouse District, the Gallery’s bright and inviting space is a place where the art takes center stage. tippingpaintgallery.com
Started in 2005 as a way for a few neighbors to show off their hens and coops, the Henside the Beltline Tour D’ Coop has grown to a one-day garden tour that encompasses 20 coops and thousands of visitors. Coop owners and the tour organizers volunteer their time to promote back yard poultry and urban farming. This year’s Tour will be Saturday, May 17 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, rain or shine. tourdcoop.com
The tour benefits Urban Ministries of Wake County, which provides life-saving food, housing and medical care to more than 24,000 low-income Wake County residents each year, including 11,000 children. Urban Ministries also provides health and nutrition education, access to fresh produce, crisis counseling and job counseling to promote healthy living and self-sufficiency. And Urban Ministries engages the community through volunteerism (1,500 active volunteers!) and advocacy. Beyond feeding, we nourish. Beyond healing, healthy lives. Beyond shelter, a path home. urbanmin.org
