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.
The UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens will offer "Bugs Beware! Carnivorous Plants of the Carolinas" on Saturday, July 19.
Designed for children age 7 to 12, the workshop will focus on the what, why, where and how of carnivorous plants in the Carolinas. Prospective attendees can register for two options – a 90-minute session that includes a Venus fly-trap or the two-hour session that features hands-on construction of a 12-inch bog dish garden with Venus fly-trap, pitcher plant, sundew and bog moss.
Sessions begin at 9:30 AM and cost $15 and $35, respectively. To register, email Paula Gross with participant(s) names and workshop option; cash/checks accepted on the morning of the workshop.
