What to do
Make paper! Join Charlotte artist Elizabeth Palmisano at her papermaking workshop at C3 Lab in South End from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 21. Palmisano works in fiber, book arts, printmaking and painting and her work has been on view in various galleries in town. She is interested in social justice and hosts workshops at art centers as well as substance use treatment facilities and community centers. In the workshop, participants will be led through a step-by-step process of creating traditional, rectangular white paper as well as circular paper, and shown how to embed items in the paper to create interesting shapes and shadows. Required registration is $75 (includes all materials).
Each week, Grace Cote and Lia Newman offer Observer readers a to-do list on immersing yourself in visual arts around town. Newman is director/curator of the Van Every/Smith Galleries at Davidson College, Cote is senior coordinator at Jerald Melberg Gallery, and they collaborate on the blog HappeningsCLT (happeningsCLT.com).
