Where to go
If you are joining the world’s art collectors and enthusiasts in Miami this week, be sure to stop by UNTITLED and Art Miami to see Charlotte’s participating galleries. During Miami Art Week, SOCO Gallery will participate in UNTITLED on Miami Beach and plans to include N.C. artists Damian Stamer, Linda Foard Roberts and Anne Lemanski in its booth, among others. Jerald Melberg Gallery is in its third decade of participation with the Art Miami fair, and will host more than 15 of its artists in its booth.
Where to go
Catch the last few days of CPCC’s Holiday Art Market on Dec. 4-5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This annual fundraiser in the Ross Gallery helps the gallery organize and pay for educational programming to correspond with its exhibitions, like artist talks and artist workshops. Included among the artists are 18 CPCC students, some of whose names might surprise you: Ahmad Sabha is currently exhibiting at Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy and Betsy Birkner recently completed an artist residency at McColl Center for Art + Innovation.
Each week, Grace Cote and Lia Newman offer Observer readers a to-do list on immersing yourself in visual arts around town. Newman is director/curator of the Van Every/Smith Galleries at Davidson College, Cote is senior coordinator at Jerald Melberg Gallery, and they collaborate on the blog HappeningsCLT (happeningsCLT.com).
