WHO TO MEET

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Carolina Living -

Char­lot­teans have three op­por­tu­ni­ties this week to meet New York-based artist Robert Laz­zarini and see his new two- and three-di­men­sional works. First, from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14, the artist opens a solo ex­hi­bi­tion, “wound,” at SOCO Gallery. Then, the artist ex­hibits new paint­ings and sculp­tures (mostly from his on­go­ing ex­plo­ration of Sharon Tate) Fri­day evening in an ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled “the flow­er­ing.” That takes place in the fifth-floor ex­pan­sion space at the Mint Mu­seum Up­town. Laz­zarini will give an artist talk 2-3 p.m. Nov. 17, also at the Mint. Laz­zarini’s work has been ex­hib­ited na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally since 1995. He cur­rently lives in New York but has main­tained a con­nec­tion to the Char­lotte re­gion through ex­hi­bi­tions at the Mint and David­son Col­lege, both in 2006, and a 2015 res­i­dency at the McColl Cen­ter for Art + In­no­va­tion.

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).
