ALL ARTISTS are welcome along North Davidson Street from 4 to 6 pm to showcase their talent. Just show up and set up, like an artist flash mob! Locations are first-come-first-served. Bring one or two pieces of your art, an easel/display, and a chair. This is a demonstration more than a market (so, please, no tables). We want to canvas the street with original art! It’s a great opportunity to see and be seen.
Location will be along N. Davidson Street starting at Matheson Bridge and heading toward 36th St. There will be areas designated for parking near the bridge. We suggest arriving a little early.
The Matheson Bridge unveiling party is a city-wide promoted event in conjunction with the May 20th Society. LOTS of people will be out for the event, so make an effort to be here! Email us with any questions.

Guest Spotlight: Call to Artists
– the Underground
The Charlotte Art Social is an event for Artists, Musicians, Comedians, and fans of every kind of art in between! We hope to establish a recurring event to promote and spotlight the great art culture that is growing in Charlotte. The idea is to bring all of the arts together under one roof to celebrate the density and diversity of talent in our city. There will be bands, possibly an open mic, stand-up comedy, etc., while meanwhile the entire space is set up as a patchwork art gallery with work from local artists. All artwork is welcome … the more the merrier! This will be a platform for artists to gain exposure, meet new artists, and even sell your work if you are interested.
It’s a great time and it’s such a diverse event that it attracts people from all walks of life. We really want to grow this event in the community, so we are calling out to any artists, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, film-makers, book-readers, food-eaters, bike-riders, and anybody else that might be interested in helping establish Charlotte as an art-friendly city, instead of the Banking and Energy capital of the South East! We are hoping to plan our next show some time this Summer at the Neighborhood Theatre, on a Friday night Gallery crawl. Feel free to contact me if you have any ideas or questions.
We are also looking for organizations or individuals that would like to help out by sponsoring the event and help us raise money to cover the operating, planning, and advertising costs. This is all about the community, but it’s also just a great excuse to hang out and party with some interesting new people!
