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 NYC and a 29-year career at the Met Museum of Art (2 years ago), and is now an adjunct art instructor at Rowan-Cabarrus Community 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!

The local artist Mikel Frank is working to invite more local artists familiar with collaborative art-making, to participate also.
