It’s time for another Historic South End Gallery Crawl.
This month, 11 galleries will be taking part. The event begins Friday, Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
New gallery guides will be available in each location. Many local restaurants and clubs are close by, so make a night of it with dinner and entertainment.
Participating galleries are:

§ Charlotte Art League – Presents “Color Me Green” artistics interpretations of the meaning of “green”. Artists were given free rein to interpret the question “What does ‘Green’ mean to you?” in very personal ways, with results ranging from literal, limited-palette compositions to provocative emotional statements about current environmental news.
