Tired of Made-in-China Holly Jollies? Plan on spending an afternoon Uptown, at the Charlotte Fine Art Show, Dec 9-11. Located in the Convention Center, next to the Nascar Museum, this is one of the top juried art shows in the country. Their goal: “to create an atmosphere that enhances art and creates a relaxing environment for art lovers.” A quiet spot of calm and creativity, with no lines!
