Spring has finally sprung but our visual arts calendar is moving slow for the first few weeks of this beautiful (though unstable) weather. While there aren’t many events happening this Easter week, we’ve pulled together a few and listed them below. We also want to remind you that our column ARTFUL is still appearing in the Charlotte Observer every Sunday. Check out this week’s here.
