Becca Lipps: Solo Exhibition

From the event description:

Every second Saturday of the month, Unorthodox Studios LLC exhibits an artist. This month we have Becca Lipps! In 2019, Charlotte’s Arts and Science Council named her a Community Supported Artist, and she exhibited her work with Art Pop at Le Meridian Hotel. Her paintings center around her interest in discovering patterns in nature. She films and edits video to appear as a moving painting that cohesively blends with her 2D work. Lipps plans to explore more of these contrasts in pattern and human behavior through combinations of material and technology.

When: Saturday, Feb. 8, 8-11 p.m.
Where: Unorthodox Studios, 3224 Benard Ave., Studio C
Admission: Free
