Found: A Found Object Assemblage Art Showcase
December 15, 2012
AKA Creative, 316 Remount Road, Charlotte, NC
Found features 60 local and regional artists’ assemblage pieces. The title of the event, Found, is closely tied to the assemblage pieces that will be on display during this event. Assemblage is an artistic process that uses found objects in new ways, allowing the artists and audience to find meaning in unconventional arrangements. The art exhibit runs from December 15th, 2012, through February 4th, 2013.
In addition to assemblage pieces, the opening will showcase a wide array of musical talent and live paintings. Doors open at 7:30pm. Musical Performances by local band Sinners and Saints, Charleston singer/songwriter Rachel Kate, and Columbia group, The Black Iron Gathering, will lend an organic feel to the event while DJs That Guy Smitty and Justin Aswell will spin records in the gallery.
Culture Initiative was founded in 2008 by Joel Tracey and Arthur Brouthers in hopes of expanding the art community in Charlotte. Using a grassroots approach, Culture Initiative stresses artist involvement and encourages thinking outside the box. Past events have included numerous gallery shows and multimedia exhibitions. For the second year, the anniversary party will be held at AKA Creative, a newly established gallery and venue in South End Charlotte.
