Check out these new exhibits and arts events, happening this week in Charlotte and the surrounding area.


Elizabeth Arzani + Carmen Neely Exhibit at MoNa Gallery: These two artists teamed up for a game of exquisite corpse and are showcasing the remains of the project at MoNa Gallery. Don't worry, this is no event for necrophiliacs. The method involves passing a work of collaborative art back and forth until its completion. By adding and cutting away at the original work - and ultimately destroying it to create something new - they've formed this colorful, mixed-media paper series. Free admission. June 19, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. MoNa Gallery, 1900 N. Brevard St.

The Main Street Art Exhibition at The Chair Factory: The exhibit features a variety of works by by local artists. There's also wine, hor d'oeuvres, and live music. June 20-21, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Chair Factory, 20700 N. Main St., Suite 110, Cornelius. 704-728-5554.

South End Soul: The June 21 events starts at 11 a.m. with a celebration of National Go Skateboarding Day at All American Pub. There will be demonstrations and skateboard vendors. The Camden Road street festival, includes an art bazaar, sampling of local brews, performances from Charlotte Folk Society, food trucks, fashion trucks, ping-pong and corn hole from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.; movie screening of Blues Brothers at 9 p.m.; After party at the Common Market. The festival is held along N. Camden Street between Park and Tryon Streets.

AG+Art Tour: Farms and artisans are joining forces for this event, which spans across the course of four participating counties - Chester, Fairfield, Lancaster and York. Tours are self-guided and offer the opportunity for folks to see how food is produced on farms and how artists craft their works (some of the stops participating range from pottery studios to jewelry and wood-turning shops). Items will also be for sale and there will be live entertainment at some of the stops. It's an interesting off the beaten path experience. Free admission. June 21, 9 p.m. to 5 p.m.; June 22, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information and details/maps of participating farms/venues, visit
