I am thrilled to now be a part of, artspace 525, a unique collaborative art space in uptown Charlotte! Artist and Art Director of The Wall Poems of Charlotte Graham Carew’s vision of uptown Charlotte landlords leasing unused spaces to artists has now come to fruition! Thank you to Charlotte Center City Partners and Parkway Properties for co-sponsoring this space.
I share this working studio with Amy Bagwell, Artist, Poet, CPCC Writing Professor, and Director and Founder of The Wall Poems of Charlotte. The space will serve a The Wall Poems headquarters and a painting studio . We will host community events from time to time. Stay tuned for twice monthly open studio days!
Visit us at 525 N. Tryon at the corner of 9th St.!
