Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Second Spin-Off Exhibition from Carolina’s Got Art! Competition

Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present July Salon, the second spin-off exhibit selected from works entered during the 2013 Carolina’s Got Art! Competition. The exhibition will be on view from July 5 - 27, 2013, A reception will be held on July 5, from 5-8pm.

The exhibition features work by fifty-five artists who entered the competition which awarded $15,000 in cash and prizes to nine artists from North and South Carolina during the May exhibition. A total of 2800 entries were received and Lance Esplund, US art critic for Bloomberg News, chose 130 pieces to comprise the first of three exhibitions. Larry Elder, founder of Elder Gallery, selected the second and third exhibitions to showcase the extraordinary artwork being created by Carolina-based artists. Approximately 300 artworks have been selected for exhibition and offered for sale throughout the event.

For the first time this year two “People’s Choice” cash awards will be given to the two artists receiving the most votes during the June and July exhibitions. “It has been interesting to see how seriously visitors have taken this award,” says Elder. “They are spending a lot of time evaluating each piece and, in many cases, agonize over their selection.”
