ANDY SMITH

Sixteen artists get introspective with the exhibit Reflection Once Removed: Self Portraits, occupying artspace 525 over the next month. Mediums including drawing, painting, photography, and multimedia.

Artspace 525, which opened in March, regularly serves as headquarters for Bagwell’s Wall Poems of Charlotte. Dowell also had a residency at the space, working on projects there through the summer. The small retail space is ideal for exhibits like Reflection Once Removed, running until Nov. 23, occupying the intimate backdrop with varied sizes.
