Live Collaborative Painting Demo: VIsual Strategies

Mikel Frank and longtime collaborative painting partner Gerard Amsellem, who both form the The Visual Passion Duo, will present a 5-hour live painting collaboration to live music by local musician, Noel Freidline. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come watch, and see the exhibition that will be on view!

This is the second live event associated with the exhibition, Visual Strategies: A Collaborative Project.

Today's event is in conjunction with our monthly 2nd Saturday Open Studios on Saturday, July 14th, from 11:00am to 4:00pm (doors open at 10am)

Visual Strategies: A Collaborative Project is a Guest exhibit / set of events this Summer at ClearWater Artist Studios. It is being organized by two collaborators: local artist/ curator, Mikel Frank, and collaborating curator & artist, Carl Heyward. Frank recently moved to Charlotte from the New York City area and a 29-year career at the Met Museum of Art, and is now an adjunct art instructor at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and Gaston College; Carl Heyward is an artist and founder of the Global Art Project, and lives and works out on the West Coast.

Participating artists from the Global Art Project (GAP) are shipping their jointly-made works in from all over the world for the exhibit, and there will be three live-collaborative-painting events, including one that's for YOU (or anyone) to participate in, on Saturday August 11!

See the Main Exhibition Event Listing on our Website, or on Eventbrite as well as the FB pages.
