South End is home to a vast array of art in all forms: fine art galleries offering everything from the realist to the experimental, colorful public murals, larger-than-life installations on the Rail Trail and dozens of studio spaces where artists and artisans dream and create.
Take in the local art scene on South End First Friday--an evening when galleries and shops offer extended hours, special receptions, live painting and music. This festive and free event has even been named Best Artsy Place to Take a Date by Charlotte Magazine. Build in a visit to any of the neighborhood’s restaurants and breweries, and it’s a whole night out!
South End First Friday is just what it says -- the very first Friday of each month. Galleries stay open late every month.
