Charlotte Magazine will host #discussclt, a conversation addressing the topic The Creative City: How Should Charlotte Cultivate a Creative and Artistic Community? Moderated by Rick Thurmond of Charlotte Magazine, panelists include Quentin Talley, April Marten, Amy Bagwell, Manoj Kesavan, and Andy Smith, with historical context provided by Brenda Tindal. Should be an interesting, lively evening.
Event will take place from 5:30-8:30pm at the Charlotte Ballet. Look here for more info and to register.
Don’t forget, it’s free to visit the permanent collection at The Mint Museum (both locations) on Wednesday evenings from 5-9pm. (FYI, we’re still waiting for the other Levine institutions to jump on board with this so we can museum hop from the Gantt to The Mint to the Becthler all in one night).
Take a charcoal drawing workshop with Isaac Payne at McColl Center for Art + Innovation. You will learn additive and subtractive drawing techniques, with an emphasis on composition and proportion. Advanced registration is recommended. The class is $30 for members/$35 non-members.
The second Goodyear Arts Showcase (in their new space at 516 N. College Street) takes place from 6-9pm. The event will celebrate their July/August Artists-in-Residence: Micah Cash, Ramya, and Chris Thomas. Film Screenings at 7pm and 8pm; free beer while it lasts provided by Birdsong Brewing Co., Sycamore Brewing, Sierra Nevada & PBR Charlotte. The Masa Casa and Hyde Brewing will be on site with tamales & coffee for sale.
