Earlier this summer, on July 18, we celebrated the current “Photography & Light Media Invitational“ art installation with a fun and free event open to the public.

This show has a wide variety of styles, subject matter and price points, from traditional local photos to light installations and video portraits.

(Artists in current show: JoAnn Sieburg-Baker, FanjoyLabrenz, Raymond Grubb, Charles W. Thomas, Jr., Amy Herman, Chris Horner, Christina Welsh,

Kevin D. Shank, Desiree Kane, Ben Premeaux, Jennifer Hogan, Beth Jackson, Kit Kube and Kevin Beaty.)

During the July 18 reception, audience also experienced interpretive dance – based on works hanging – by Taproot Ensemble.

And, guests learned more about Que-OS from its’ founder Manoj Kesavan.


What is the Gallery @ Packard Place?

  • The gallery is an uptown venue for local artwork which complements the Packard Place core values of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Community.
  • Art connects people in the Charlotte community and artists are naturally innovative with entrepreneurial spirits. The Gallery @ Packard Place builds on this foundation.
    • Local artists have opportunities to exhibit & sell their art, while gallery events and programming addressing different art and business topics make this place a little different.
    • How can you find out more? Join the Packard Place Meetup group – which lists upcoming gallery art and business events. (Or email Carmella – – to join mailing list.)
