New Works by Shaun Cassidy, Maja Godlewska, and Barbara Schreiber
New Gallery of Modern Art
(No Opening Reception)

Although there isn’t an opening reception, stop by the New Gallery of Modern Art between April 10-May 7 during normal business hours to see works by some of our favorites artists in town, Shaun Cassidy, Maja Godlewska, and Barbara Schreiber. Maja’s motion-filled, swirling compositions, Barbara’s intricate paintings – often images of beauty alluding to dark, ugly subjects – and Shaun’s brightly-colored mixed media works, reminiscent of the exquisitely fabricated, jewel-toned sculptures he has become known for, will make for an engaging trio with lots to explore and unpack.

2018 Annual Student Exhibition & Awards
Central Piedmont Community College

April is the month when most of the academic institutions feature works by student artists. These exhibitions are always interesting, in part because it’s an opportunity to get a glimpse into the next generation of art makers. You will see a range of media, techniques, and ideas – often experimental – within each exhibition. Central Piedmont Community College is the first institution to feature students this season, with the opening of their 2018 Annual Student Exhibition on April 10. Awards will be presented at 5pm in the Pease Auditorium, followed the exhibition reception at 6pm in the Pease Gallery.

Open Studio Saturday
McColl Center for Art + Innovation

The Open Studio Saturday event at McColl Center from 12-4pm on April 14 is one of the last public opportunities to converse with the current slate of artists-in-residence including Xenobia Bailey, Bethany Collins, Javier de Frutos, Juan William Chavez, and Marion Wilson. The Open Studio events are always a great way to learn more about the creative process, directly from artists. Plus, there will be several hands-on activities, including Making Patterns with Typewriters with Charlotte artist Laurie Smithwick, and Cards for Neighbors, a small part of The Center’s A Tale of Two Cities initiative, focused around activities that aim to ease the challenges that confront vulnerable populations in our city. Visitors will also have the chance to see exhibitions on the 2nd and 3rd floor.
