Artists at C3Lab

Gallery C3

Gallery C3 is an alternative art space that hosts exhibits featuring local, regional, national and international artists.  From emerging to established artists, Gallery C3 supports traditional, contemporary, and hybrid art forms that integrate social, interdisciplinary, experimental, imaginative and innovative collaborations that are intended to stimulate, boldly shape and connect through an intimate exchange to the artistic community.


Figurative work that is drawn directly from the life going on around the artist, in the places they work and live, has the inevitable effect of creating a visual record of a city's literal and metaphorical landscapes, one that is unique to each artist. 

Mark Doepker has been a creator his entire life, and many of the works can be seen as time capsules through the image or titles which bear reference to specific events. 

Since 2014, Hannah Barnhardt has pursued drawing from life and urban sketching as a daily practice, compiling a visual archive of life, fashion trends, and the social scene of the Charlotte area, in bodies of work that speak to inequality, gentrification, and class division. Their overall hope is to promote a better understanding and appreciation for our fellow humans.

Opening reception at Gallery C3 is Friday, August 4th  from 7 to 10pm and will be on display through August 24thSpecial evening performances by James Lee Walker II.
