Whether looking for a walk in the woods or some fun on a lake, UNC Charlotte’s Venture outdoor education program has the right summer trip. Led by experienced outdoor facilitators, Venture trips are open to UNC Charlotte students, faculty, staff and the general public.
All trips require a mandatory pre-trip meeting to review the itinerary, safety precautions and for participants to meet their companions. Typically, all equipment and transportation are provided by Venture.
This summer, trips include outings to South Mountains State Park for hiking and Lake Jocassee for camping and kayaking.
Works by three artists comprise "CHROMA: lyrical lines and compulsive color," which opens Saturday, July 12, at the Projective Eye Gallery in UNC Charlotte Center City.
The display will feature color-soaked abstraction in oil paintings by Linda Luise Brown, acrylics and collage works by Marge Loudon Moody and the intricate surface design on ceramic objects and installations by Greg Scott. One of the highest-selling genres, abstract art is often one of the most misunderstood, too.
An opening reception for "CHROMA" will be from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, July 12, and it will feature a performance by pianist Dan Knight and conversations with the artists. The exhibit will run through Wednesday, Sept. 24.
