WHO TO MEET

Meet Durham-based artist Martha Clip­pinger at the open­ing of “MARTHA CLIP­PINGER: Of­fKil­ter” at Hodges Tay­lor in Char­lotte on May 17 from 6-8 p.m. The artist’s brightly hued works take the form of wo­ven works, wooden con­struc­tions, ce­ramic re­liefs and works on pa­per. John Yau re­cently re­viewed one of her ex­hi­bi­tions for Hyper­al­ler­gic, say­ing: “It seems to me that she — more than any other artist of her gen­er­a­tion — has trans­formed the Bauhaus aes­thetic of craft and fine art into some­thing new and en­tirely her own.” This is Clip­pinger’s first ex­hi­bi­tion with Hodges Tay­lor. On view through July 26.

WHERE TO GO

Head to SOCO Gallery in Char­lotte May 15 from 6-8 p.m. for the open­ing of Guy Yanai: Sen­ti­men­tal Spring. For his first ex­hi­bi­tion with the gallery, the Is­raeli artist cre­ated a set of botan­i­cal paint­ings and works on pa­per. The paint­ings are brightly col­ored with thick, de­ci­sive brush­strokes but also have a flat, graphic, col­lage-like qual­ity. On view through June 21.
