Headlines & Sunday Announcements
Ashley Park School Campus Work Day
May 27, 9am-12pm / 2401 Belfast Drive
The Ashley Park faculty, staff, and students will come together to plant seeds and flowers in the Garden and around the campus of the school, and they would love for the Warehouse community to join them! Bring any yard and garden tools you have and head over to the school to get your hands dirty.
Not only will this be a great day to get outside with friends and family, but you’ll be helping to bring beauty to our neighborhood school campus.
Warehouse Gallery Opening
Friday, June 2 / 7:00PM
We are pleased to announce that in June the Gallery at Warehouse will be featuring the watercolor works of our own Participating Member, Kathi Graves.
Art is a filter for pain, beauty, grace, power, love, desire, and action, and Warehouse will always be a place where that filter is put on display for examination and conversation.
The Gallery at Warehouse 242 is a working small-footprint gallery that is contained in our main building. We feature new work by Charlotte artists, some of whom call W242 home, some of whom otherwise wouldn’t go anywhere near a church building. The gallery exists to exhibit work by new and established artists that elicit conversation and movement around their work.
