Open House

Thursday, August 2, 2018
6:00-9:00 p.m.

Raise a glass to the end of another successful artist residency season at McColl Center by joining us to celebrate summer artists-in-residence Eliana Arenas, Julio Gonzalez, Monique Luck, April Marten, Antoine Williams, and Stephanie J. Woods. (Their summer residencies end on August 10, 2018.)

See the work they’ve been creating this summer and get another look at our exhibition, The Open Orchard, by exhibiting artist-in-residence Sam Van Aken. The Open Orchard transforms our first-floor gallery into a living exhibition and workshop space, where Van Aken preserves heirloom and antique fruit varieties before they disappear. Included are botanical illustrations, tree stumps taken from old heirloom orchards, herbarium specimens of pressed branches and flowers, and more.

This event is free, everyone is welcome, and we will have beer and wine for sale.

Free parking: On N. Tryon St. after 6 p.m. and in the lot at the corner of W. 10th St. and N. Church St. (behind Charlotte Ballet).
