I SPY

Schools are out, and I SPY Scavenger Hunts are back. Coincidence? Yes, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the fun. Bring the kids anytime throughout the run of the exhibition to play this popular game. “Discover Local” runs Thursday, June 10 through Saturday, Sept. 18. Admission is free. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After several months without art on the Cabarrus Arts Council walls, we’re excited to announce that exhibitions are coming back to our gallery space, beginning with Discover Local this Thursday, June 10. This exhibition features the work of eight Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties artists: Scott Avett, Malia Bryngelson, Nancy Hilliard Joyce, Anne Marie Propst, Nathaniel Rogers, Elisa Sanchez, Brittani Taylor and Wabwila Mugala.

“Open Mouth, 2013” is one of three pieces from Scott Avett featured in The Galleries of the Cabarrus Arts Council’s exhibition, “Discover Local.” 

You probably noticed at least one familiar name in the list. Discover Local includes work from Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers. We think you’ll enjoy examining another side of this talented musician.

Each one of the eight artists in Discover Local has an interesting story to tell. Read more about a few of them through the photos, then visit the exhibition in-person in The Galleries. Discover Local runs Thursday, June 10 – Saturday, September 18. Admission is free. Gallery Hours: Tuesdays - Fridays, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 4 pm.
