We were able to go to the opening night of the 2011 Charlotte Auto Show on Wednesday. (Thank You Vinoo & Ally) The new cars were interesting but I have to say my favorite was the pristine antique car section with cars on loan from the local auto club. Everything about those cars is rich in detail and beauty. The aesthetics of them are just so attractive. It is always so mesmerizing to stare at the perfect compliment of function and beauty. I would love to attach one of these hood ornaments on my car now. It is going on throughout the weekend at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Another great time this weekend is the Universoul Circus. I stumbled across it last year while at my favorite thrift store on Freedom Drive. They come once a year and set up in the Old Freedom Mart parking lot. I know people abhor the circus because of the animals. This circus is about 15% animals and the rest pure human athleticism and talent. It is a super fun event filled with an emphasis on community and great spirit. The ring master and his sidekick carry the show. There is NEVER a dull moment. Performers approach you throughout the show. The playlist is so fun everyone under the Big Top can't help but dance in between acts. The tickets are super cheap and you will never question if you received enough entertainment for the price. The message they put out along with the performance is a must see if you have the time!
Of course Last but not least! The closing reception for Jessica Moss will be tonight here at Studio K. If you are around and would like to get a chance to view this wonderful show please come in. We will be open with beverages and a snack while you peruse and talk with the artist from 6:00-9:00 tonight. I really enjoyed working with Jessica and having her pieces fill the space for the past few weeks.
