Carolina's Got Art makes room for more works

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Just because you live in NoDa doesn't mean you support the arts scene. That's because to really support the Carolina arts scene you'd have to venture outside of the Q.C. to spot the works of other artists who are doing things with canvas, ceramics or whatever other mediums they fancy. That's where the folks behind Carolina's Got Art comes in. Created in 2009 by Elder Gallery owner Larry Elder, CGA rounds up artists, both professional and non, from North and South Carolina for a competition and exhibition that brings their works into the public eye - and to Charlotte, where they showcase at Elder Gallery.

This year, more than 1,000 artists submitted 2,800 different pieces of work, which is more than the gallery has room for. Not to worry, the entries are all being shown in three different exhibitions of work. The juried portion of the exhibition opens on May 3 with an awards presentation. This specific exhibit concludes on June 1 and will be followed by two more, June 7-29 and July 5-27. For more information, visit www.carolinasgotart.com.
