Artist & MakerSpace Studios at C3Lab

Being a creative hub in South End, C3Lab supports the efforts of artists at all stages of their careers by offering affordable artist space.  To sustain the local arts community, C3 provides common spaces where artists can meet, socialize and collaborate, learn together and have creative dialogue about art being created, exhibit their current works and/or WIP and thrive in their artistic practice.  C3 hosts an art exhibit each year featuring all the artists in Gallery C3.

Discover and explore the breadth of Charlotte’s illustration talent at InktoberCLT. Curated by Elisa Sanchez and Jake Brown, this showcase is the culmination of a month-long inclusive and interactive project that takes place in the Charlotte creative community throughout the month of October.

Using prompts by artist Jake Parker, IllustrateCLT challenged Charlotte-based writers, illustrators, and other creatives to interpret a different word each day using ink.

This exhibition presents the ingenuitive, witty and diverse responses to these prompts and showcases the artistic talent in our local community.
