This is the Opening Reception for the Guest exhibit / set of events, "Visual Strategies: A Collaborative Project" at ClearWater Artist Studios. It is being organized by two collaborators: local artist/ curator, Mikel Frank, who 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; and, collaborating curator & artist, Carl Heyward,  founder of the Global Art Project, who is 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!
