Forget Neil Gaiman and the fact that this exhibit bears the name of his award-winning novel, because it's got nothing to do with him. And that's actually not a bad thing at all. American Gods, opening at Genome, is a solo showcase of new art by Charlotte-based mixed media artist Chris Watts.
Opening reception today (Sept. 1, 6 p.m.-10 p.m.). Free admission. Exhibit continues through Oct. 4. Genome, 120 Brevard Court. 704-332-4322. www.ohgenome.com.
