Upcoming events at Charlotte Art League
Opening reception for unearthed
Friday, July 1st, 2022
7 to 9 p.m.
Conversations with Nature “unearthed” Things emerge, and we cause things to emerge. We birth, but we also excavate and extract. Our neural networks are trained on emergence, brains constructing a complete picture from any half-baked stimulus as if we want the world to be made whole. The first signs of spring shoot up and down, a push of root and pull to the light. The bird from the egg from the bird before. It’s a very human condition. Archeological. Vast. A desire for clear, firm answers. For consecration. Join us at The Charlotte Art League’s new location on 4237 Raleigh Street. Opening Reception on July 1 from 7-9pm. Featuring new work by: Joann Galarza Vega, Rebecca Jones, Kimberly McFadden, Elisa Sanchez, Nicole Schoepflin, and poetry by Joy Surles.
