Here’s where you might find the HappeningsCLT team this week.
Always wanted to take a photography class? The Light Factory is offering some really great classes and workshops for adults. We might just have to sign up for Herman Nicholson’s Portrait & Studio Lighting Photography class beginning April 23, or Carolyn DeMerritt’s Introduction to Black and White Film Photography, beginning April 22. Registration for their awesome summer camps for middle school and high school students begins today, April 20. You won’t want to miss out on animation, portrait photography, and some of the other great classes being offered this summer. So sign up your kid, or tell your neighbor’s 13-year old.
The Van Every/Smith Galleries at Davidson College will open their Annual Student Art Exhibition on Wednesday, April 22, with a reception from 7-9pm. Awards, selected by Crista Cammarato, will be presented at 7:30pm.
So the #weloveCLT talk with Ted Williams of Charlotte Agenda is definitely SOLD OUT (with a 60+ person wait list). BUT, you can stop by 809 W. Hill Street after the talk, around 6:30pm, and check out the exhibition HappeningsCLT just installed by Anna Kenar, Shades and Aggregates. Her drawings and prints are unbelievably beautiful – and reasonably priced, so stop by, meet the artist, and maybe buy some art, until 8pm.
The Light Factory‘s Annuale opens on Friday evening, April 24 with a reception beginning at 6:30pm. The exhibition features work from artists Diana Bloomfield, Micah Cash, Beth Lilly, Michael Joseph, Jeremy Underwood, and Carl R. Wilson.
Support one of your favorite local art museums and head to the Rock & Royal Spring Gala on Saturday, April 25. The tickets are $500 per person for this black tie dinner, held under a tent on the lawn of the Mint Museum Randolph. The event features a brief live auction, dinner, dancing, dessert, and more. Live auction items include a painting by Herb Jackson, pottery by Mark Hewitt, a photography by Linda Foard Roberts, a print by Robert Lazzarini, as well as some getaways and other special experiences. The event begins at 6:30pm and advanced tickets are required. The event is sponsored by Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.
