“The season itself has the most variety in musical genres we have had yet,” said Cabarrus Arts Council CEO and President Noelle Rhodes Scott. “I am really excited about it and think our audiences will be, too.”
The Listening Room, a show that gives local creatives the opportunity to perform onstage at The Davis, is set to open come January. The Davis Theatre lineup is anticipated to be one of the best seasons yet, and this year the Galleries marks its 10th anniversary. There is plenty to look forward to!

The GalleriesThis year marks the 10th anniversary of The Galleries. To celebrate, their first exhibition, Ten, will feature new works from artists who have previously exhibited in The Galleries.
Clay, the next exhibition, is a community favorite that features NC potters exclusively. Every piece is for sale, and the prices are very affordable, just in time for the holidays.
Origin Story is co-curated by local artist Gordon James and will feature a small group of artists Cabarrus Arts Council Curator Rebecca Collins and he select.
Sometimes is expected to be a favorite exhibition due to it’s interactive nature, asking people to finish the thought “Sometimes…” on a sticky note to post in The Galleries.
“Curating The Galleries’ new season of exhibitions has been such a fulfilling experience because it’s so varied,” said Curator Rebecca Collins. “It begins with a bit of nostalgia, through Ten, and ends with the community taking on the role as artist – exhibiting their own thoughts in Sometimes.”
