South End Verses Call for Creative Works
SUBMISSION DEADLINE NOW CLOSED
South End Verses at C3Lab invites all artists, designers, photographers, writers, social entrepreneurs, and community activists to submit up to 3 SAMPLES of art work or 2 one-page samples of writings for the upcoming art collaboration of the South End Verses Collaborative Public Art Project. This project highlights creative works and words from people in the Charlotte community. From fine and graphic artists to all classifications of writers, one visual artist and one wordsmith will be chosen then paired together to collaborate and create a NEW outdoor public artwork piece that will visually communicate and reflect their shared vision of the state of Charlotte and the community today.
The South End Verses Committee will select two collaborators from the sample submissions who will have a month and a half to work together to create and produce the NEW public art piece.
Must be over 18 years of age
Must reside (at least one year) within Mecklenburg or the surrounding counties
Call is for creatives working in the visual arts (including painting, printmaking, illustration, assemblage, collage, fiber, photography, drawing, sculpture, installation), graphic designers, writers, poets, journalists, community activists and any actively engaged wordsmiths in the community.
Submissions are now closed for South End Verses. Chosen collaborators will be announced soon!

Conversations with Nature: A Multi-Sensory Art Event
This new exhibit featuring works by Crista Cammaroto, Kimberly McFadden Hutchinson, Rebecca Jones, Elizabeth Palmisano, Nicole Schoepflin, Joann Galarza Vega, Sara Woodmansee is on display through Monday, March 11th.
To have a conversation is to listen and communicate, to exchange ideas. Nature is teeming with shapes and sounds, beauty and design. It has history, medicine, cycles, and knowledge. Nature has been personified and humanized: Mother Nature, the laws of nature, human nature. By paying attention to nature, we are rewarded with inspiration and learn more about the world, and ourselves. The artworks in this show are created from materials from nature and/or inspired by nature. What does nature communicate to you? What do you learn about yourself by listening?
