An Artsy Day in Charlotte

First stop… Reid’s Market. This time we decided to eat in. They have wonderful lunch options… you can make your own salad, sandwhich, sample their soup of the day… or order some of their ready made treats.

I opted for the salad. Fresh spinach, garbanzo beans, portobello mushrooms, goat cheese (heavenly), salmon, and croutons. Yum!

These were some of the most comfortable chairs ever… and we got to sit right across from a cooking class that was in progress… Note to self… you must attend one of these classes, they sound absolutely amazing!!!

After looking around Reids we headed to our next destination… Red Sky Gallery… we got to see some absolutely amazing things…

These little guys welcome you into the gallery…

This was a mixture of purses, vases… I think I liked the glass creations on top the most…

This little ‘well not that little’ guy was amazing. I totally wanted to take him home… But where would I possibly put him?

Close up shot of the glass creations I mentioned earlier…

This rabbit is just chillin’…

No it’s not real water dripping from that pipe.. but it’s pretty cool though… They have several of these around the shop… Go check out the gallery and see if you can find all of them for yourself =)

You can’t see me can you… said one Zebra to to the other. (This art piece was genius… not only were the zebras masterfully placed between the tall trees, but they were also reflected in the water.)

Loved this… Lexi (my 9 year old Papilllon) loves hanging her head out the window any chance she gets.

Very architectural…

This was one of my most favorite pieces in the whole gallery… I absolutely adore flowers no matter what medium they’re in.

We headed off to Jerald Melburg Gallery… to see the works of an amazing charcoal artist Susan Grossman. There aren’t words to describe her amazing work… So take a look and see what you think…

All these amazing works of art are done completely with charcoal and can be seen in museums and private collections in the US and abroad…
