Carolina Art Crush LIVE – with Burk Uzzle
HappeningsCLT and SOCO Gallery are pleased to present a live interview with acclaimed North Carolina photographer, Burk Uzzle, moderated by HappeningsCLT’s own Kati Stegall. Uzzle’s critically acclaimed work has captured poignant moments in contemporary history including the Civil Rights Movement and Woodstock and has explored the eccentricities of American life.

Carolina Art Crush Live is a translation of the popular art crush interview featured here on HappeningsCLT. Join us Wednesday, July 27th, from 6-8PM at SOCO Gallery, 421 Providence Road in Charlotte.

Refreshments will be provided by Earl’s Grocery. Event is FREE.

View Finder: Constructed Narrative
C3 Lab, 2525 Distribution St., Charlotte, NC 28203

View Finder: Constructed Narrative is a group photography exhibition curated by painter Holly Keogh that addresses the function of pictures and how they should be understood and interpreted. Keogh notes, “the title and concept for the show is inspired by philosopher, Jacques Derrida, who viewed photography as a technically mediated form of witnessing.” The artists featured in this exhibition, Katherine KirchnerLydia Bittner-Baird, Ty Brown, Brittany LittleDanTek, Hamilton Ward, Tiffany Long and Maly Por, use their cameras to focus our attention on a particular view or scene. The resulting photographs act as both translations and inventions.

The opening is Friday, July 29, from 7-10pm but the exhibition will remain on view through August 12.
