American Gods at Genome Gallery

September 1 – October 4

Chris Watts is a local, emerging mixed media artist. His latest exhibit is a collection of pieces titled “American Gods.” The artwork reflects (to me anyway) a different socio-political view of popular black males from the past and today. It’s a very interesting take on their role. He is quoted on the Genome Gallery’s exhibit description saying, “I enjoy destroying facades –– ripping through generations of stereotypes to find out what they’re really made up of. It’s a lot easier to allow yourself to be inspired by an individual when you discover who they really are.”

The opening reception is September 1 from 6 – 10 p.m. at 120 Brevard Court, Charlotte, NC 28202. Details.

Need company?!

If you’re not into solo art viewings and you’re friends aren’t interested in joining you, check out the exhibit with McColl Center for Visual Art. They have organized a group outing on September 13 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. You can chat about the exhibit with others and enjoy beverages and appetizers. The cost is free for members of The Center and $8 for non-members. Details and RSVP here.
