Plastic Ties and Coffee Stirrers! No, not Starbucks. Art! And pretty amazing art, at that! Showing at the McColl Center for Visual Art through Jan. 8, the center has been divided into two separate spaces reflecting the human condition, using only plastic ties and coffee stirrers. Meticulously crafted, Zip Stir, will make us look at common things in a whole different way. N. Tryon St., 704-332-3535.
