Enjoy Work by Sam Guzzie During the South End Gallery Crawl

Join Magnolia Emporium for the October 5th Historic South End gallery crawl! Magnolia Emporium is co-hosting the event here in the Gold District of Charlotte and will feature works by artist Sam Guzzie.

Sam Guzzie is a multi-media artist with a heavy focus on oil painting, a passion for community arts, and a flair for dark yet oddly beautiful and thought-provoking imagery. She graduated from Temple University's Tyler School of Art with a B.A in Studio Art and a Minor in Art History. In Charlotte, Sam is currently developing and directing Brand the Moth, a budding nonprofit for mural arts and art education in the area. Sam also serves as an adviser to The Gold District Board of Directors advocating for art in the new overlay district of the Historic South End neighborhood.

Sam's artwork is represented by Magnolia Emporium of the Gold District neighborhood. She was recently commissioned to paint a mural of Queen Charlotte on the front facade of Magnolia Emporium. The in-progress mural has received both celebrity and royal endorsements as well as magazine, editorial, and video recognition. Queen Charlotte stands larger than life representing more than just her likeness but the history of the inspiring woman that she was.

Sam's goal for Brand the Moth is not only to capture this style of history through art but to bring forth change in how Charlotte experiences art. By collaborating with artists, creatives and businesses alike, Sam is working to create a safe space to organize and regulate mural projects that respect the artists involved and capture the beauty and creativity that businesses and neighbors are looking for.

The South End Gallery Crawl is a signature neighborhood event that happens on the first Friday evening of every month. South End’s fine art galleries, and some shops and restaurants who also feature local and fine art for sale, stay open late to showcase their newest exhibitions, often with music, food or drink, and an opportunity to meet the artists. Best of all, this event is free to attend and great for all ages!

At CityPark View South Apartments in Charlotte, North Carolina, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Friday!
