Friday Faves – “Best in Show”

This week for our Friday faves we decided to highlight some of the best and brightest from our local colleges and universities. Springtime is a great time to visit student shows and learn about up and coming local artist talent.  We are excited to feature some award winning work by students from Davidson College, Winthrop University, and Central Piedmont Community College.
