The Cabarrus Arts Council’s Art Walk Friday in downtown Concord will feature artwork by more than 80 artists, book signings and plenty to see at 13 locations on Union and Spring streets and an Emmy Award-winning documentary at the Davis Theatre. Stick around for the Christmas Tree Lighting afterwards!
A highlight will be The Galleries’ 19-artist invitational exhibition, A Time and Place, which celebrates a love of the land and places held dear. Many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work, and several locations will have free refreshments. Russ McIntire will play music in front of Mullis Music at 31 Union Street S, and the Adam Ramsey Miller Gallery at 21 Union Street S will have children’s art activities. Hosted by Modern Film Fest, the documentary will be shown at the Davis Theatre after Art Walk ends at 9 p.m. In addition, Kimberly Brouillette will be signing copies of her award-winning murder mystery books at Carm's Cafe. All activities are free.
A Time and Place features Walter Stanford’s Century Farms series of paintings, urban landscapes by Julyan Davis, clocks by Irene Semanchuk, birdhouses by Rolf Holmquist and place settings and teapots by Penland potters. Other artists include Robbie Barber, Barking Spider Pottery, Bre Barnett Crowell, Cynthia Decker, Gene Furr, Terry Gess, Shawn Ireland, Nick Joerling, Suze Lindsay, Kent McLaughlin, Branch Richter, Ken Sedberry, Ralston Fox Smith, Gay Smith and David Stickel.
The documentary follows the famous Maggie Valley moonshiner Popcorn Sutton as he makes his last batch of moonshine, or as he called it, “likker.” Director Neal Hutcheson will be attending the screening to talk about the film. The film is free and open to all ages. The Davis Theatre is located at 65 Union Street S in Cabarrus County’s historic courthouse.
