The Paintings of Scott Avett: Exploring Story and Spirituality, Free and Open to Public Feb. 25

“The Paintings of Scott Avett: Exploring Story and Spirituality,” an exhibit of the paintings of Scott Avett, artist, musician and founding member of The Avett Brothers, opens to the public Feb. 25, 10 am – 4 pm, at The Morrison condominiums, 532 Governor Morrison St. in Charlotte’s SouthPark neighborhood.

In 2003, a young painter named Scott Avett walked into artist Tom Schulz’s Empathinc. gallery in Charlotte, NC. The two quickly realized they shared many of the same ideas about art. They both valued the collaborative and spiritual aspects of the creative process; and they both saw their work as open-ended narratives – layered stories that would grow richer as they were shared. In 2011, wishing to continue those early conversations about faith, fine art and storytelling, Schulz and his wife, Rev. Sheila Ennis, envisioned this event as a way to share Avett’s work, as well as the work of Charlotte-based non-profit, The Educational Center.

Original works and commemorative posters ($50) will be available for sale.
