Featuring local and world-renowned artists from disciplines such as painting, sculpture, and woodworking, the fifth annual juried show affords artists a venue to sell their work and interact with buyers. Hosted by the Charlotte Convention Center, the three-day event—a joint production of Hot Works, LLC and the Institute for the Arts & Education—runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, May 10, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12. Kids aged 12 or younger receive free admission, and all attendees qualify to win this year's door prize: season tickets to the Charlotte Symphony.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Charlotte Fine Art Show
Artists can let their work speak for them when it's displayed in galleries, but they have to do their fair share of talking at the Charlotte Fine Art Show. Local, national, and international artists alike attend the event, where they answer attendees' questions about their original, handmade work. From painting and photographs to sculptures and jewelry, about 100 entries are ranked by a jury of art professionals, which honors the show's best work with cash prizes.
All pieces are available for purchase, and in some cases the show is the only time these items will appear in North Carolina, unless North Carolina grows so big it takes over the entire world. When they aren't exhibiting their work, artists walk audiences through their creative processes during art demonstrations.
