Here’s where the HappeningsCLT girls will be this week. Follow along (and tag your own art related photos) #HappeningsCLT.
Both locations of the Mint are free on Wednesdays. You can visit the permanent collections for free, but must still pay for special exhibitions. At the Uptown location, exhibitions include America the Beautiful, an exhibition featuring nearly 200 works on paper from the permanent collection, and Kristina Rogers: Into the Labyrinth, among others. In addition to access to the permanent collection until 9pm, the event features music, discounts in the Mint Museum Uptown shop, and buy-one-get-one-free glasses of wine.
There are a couple of different events going on this Friday.
During the day, swing by the Bechtler to see their new exhibition: Portraying the Patron: Andy Warhol and the Becthlers. It’s the first exhibition under the direction of their new awesome curator, Jennifer Edwards. (We can’t wait for her upcoming project, Sam Francis: Rapid Fluid Indivisible Vision, but more on that later!).
From 6-9pm, the McColl Center for Art + Innovation hosts an Open House. It’s the last opportunity to visit the current summer artists in residence, and the last chance to see Alix Lambert’s exhibition, Prison Zoo.
If you are in the Cornelius/Davidson area, check out the second Friday Gallery Crawl. There is a new gallery in town, Brick Row, and they are hosting a reception for their new exhibition, Element, a group show resulting from an open call to local artists.
