  • Hidell Brooks: Reception for Ruth Ava Lyons, Bill Braun, and Amanda Talley
    Hidell Brooks will open a new exhibition with an evening reception for three artists we love. Bill Braun creates hyper-realist acrylic paintings that look like paper collages; Amanda Talley’s big, loopy abstract paintings are favorites for many of Charlotte’s interior designers; and Ruth Ava Lyons continues to explore tenuous environments in her beautifully colorful paintings. On view through February 27. 6-8 p.m., 1910 South Boulevard.
  • Ciel Gallery: Reception for “My Life as a Dog”
    This juried show contains artworks created with the prompt “show us what the life of a dog is really like.” Ciel Gallery has partnered with the Humane Society for this event and will accept donations to their Wish List during the opening. 6-9 p.m., 128 East Park Avenue.

C3 Lab’s artist residency program continues with an Open Studio evening with artist and filmmaker Preston Drum. We aren’t sure what to expect, but he says: ‘”we will be screening my ‘deconstructed’ film, ‘A Saturday In the Summer’ at 8:00pm. A 15 min piece with audio recorded in a closet in MN and about 100 ink drawings on a wall.” Worth experiencing, we think!
