The Gallery at Flat Rock Presents March Art Madness
In a spirit of extreme non-competitiveness, the team of artists represented by The Gallery at Flat Rock will get focused on the inspiration that spring fever brings in a special month of “March Art Madness.” This first-ever month-long art obsession will launch March 3, with artists taking their respective art forms to the floorboards of the gallery in what promises to be a riotous display of creative activity.
Crafted as a stimulating cultural alternative to the endless mind-numbing basketball of that other March event, March Art Madness will get viewers involved with a free raffle offering a $150 prize for the art fan who clocks the most visits to witness artists in action as they show off their skilled finesse in paint, clay, wood and drawing media on the gallery floor.
Here’s how it works: March 3 through March 31, 2018, artists will be sweating out artwork from 1-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 1-3 p.m. Sundays, with pairs of artists stacked in two-hour time slots of jam-packed invention and creation. March Art Madness is free and open to the public.
The Gallery at Flat Rock represents finely curated art and craft, and is located in Flat Rock Square at 2702-A Greenville Highway in Flat Rock, North Carolina. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; or by appointment.
