Charlotte Magazine has announced that CPCC Ross and Pease Art Galleries has received a Best of the Best award as the city’s Best Art Gallery!

The galleries at Central Piedmont Community College have always served students and faculty, providing a space for their work and occasionally bringing in outside talent. But recently, the spaces have evolved. The Ross and Pease are now home to emerging and professional talent, from Shaun Cassidy’s The Sound of Everything (which runs through July 14) to a recent exhibition made entirely of animated GIFs, a medium never before presented in Charlotte galleries.

The Annual Student Exhibition is now on display in Pease Gallery, and has been extended through mid-July.

CPCC Art Galleries remains committed to our mission of inspiring, educating, and engaging students, faculty, and community members through access to exceptional visual art in all media. The Galleries constantly support the teaching mission of the college by serving as a lab for the visual arts curricula and enhancing a variety of other subjects. Additional educational programming celebrates artistic achievement and cross-discipline collaboration.

Look for more exciting events and artist’s lectures in the coming year!
