BEST BET

Bar­bara Schreiber’s ex­hi­bi­tion Do­mes­tic Dis­tur­bances opens at Storrs Gallery at UNC Char­lotte with a re­cep­tion at 12:30 p.m. on March 22. Sure, it’s an odd time for a re­cep­tion, but we prom­ise it will be worth see­ing. There is a lec­ture at 6:30 p.m. April 11 and the ex­hi­bi­tion re­mains on view through April 18, pro­vid­ing plenty of op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence Schreiber’s beau­ti­ful, metic­u­lously ex­e­cuted works that are of­ten about dark, ugly sub­jects. Storrs Gallery is in the School of Ar­chi­tec­ture and ex­hi­bi­tions are typ­i­cally tied to the cur­ricu­lum. Schreiber’s work vi­su­al­izes the built en­vi­ron­ment, but she fo­cuses on the mun­dane struc­tures in sub­di­vi­sions and gated com­mu­ni­ties across the U.S. to high­light the threat of de­vel­op­ment on nat­u­ral habi­tats.

WHO TO MEET

Meet the stu­dents of the late Joan Tweedy in an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled Form­ing a Legacy. The ex­hi­bi­tion is al­ready on view at UNCC’s Rowe Gallery and fea­tures the art­work of alumni who worked with Tweedy, a ce­ram­ics pro­fes­sor, as a way to honor her in­flu­ence as an ed­u­ca­tor and artist. A re­cep­tion will be held at 5 p.m. March 21 at Rowe Gallery. The ex­hi­bi­tion re­mains on view through March 27. You’ll also want to catch Ves­sels Aplenty, a memo­rial ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing works by Tweedy in the Pro­jec­tive Eye Gallery at UNCC’s Cen­ter City (on view March 18-April 16; re­cep­tion at 6 p.m. April 12).
