Penland Series Justin Rothshank
In an effort to make art more accessible, Bill Gorelick and Central Piedmont Community College have constructed an open gallery space on the College's Levine Campus in Matthews, NC.  The campus, which is somewhat industrial in its design, offers an ideal space for a dynamic layout that can be transformed based on the featured exhibit.


Penland School of Crafts Series begins it's tour around the CPCC Campuses at the Levine Campus. The show features everything from jewelry to oil paintings from a variety of artists. The exhibit will be on display for the 2016 Spring Semester. Many of the items will be for sale.
