Happy March! Spring is right around the corner, just itching to get out from the last layer of freeze. You know who else needs to get out? You. Here’s what you can do in Charlotte this week to enjoy and support the visual arts:
At the Bechtler Museum, take in the new Exhibition of the Art books of Henri Matisse and then enjoy a chamber music concert by the The University of North Carolina School for the Arts Chamber Players. The quartet will perform Rondo alla Zingerese featuring compositions by Brahms and Handel-Halverson.
Concerts are at 12:00 and 6:00. More information available here.
The music and art pairings continue on Wednesday night at McColl Center for Art and Innovation. If Jazz is more your style, grab a ticket for New Frequencies: An evening of Jazz with Der Wawawa and Ghost Trees. Show starts at 8pm. Also stay tuned for future installments of this series of events – next up is a film event on March 27th.
First – head on over to Neighborhood Theatre for the All Arts Market and check out what over 60 artists have to offer. This is a Free admission event! 2pm – 10pm. More info.
Then head over to the other side of the tracks (literally) to Hart Witzen Gallery for SHOWDOWN 4. This is a Contemporary Visual Art competition where YOU get to vote on “Best in Show” – Show opens at 7pm, voting closes at 10:30 and winners are announced at 10:45. Also a FREE event! More info.
*note that 36th is closed at the railroad tracks, take N Tryon Street to 36th Street to get to the gallery.
Finally close out your day full of art and hit up Twenty Two for the opening of Post Haste: Sharon Dowell and Christopher Thomas Campbell – event is 7pm – 2am and is sure not to disappoint. 1500 Central Avenue.
