In visual art 

Gretchen Lothrop will be exhibiting her unique metal sculptures at Artspace in Raleigh from June 1 to July 14. Her work takes its inspiration from her passionate interest in music, which she says relates "ethical truths. ... Perfect sound is perfect concord." There will be an opening reception for the artist on Friday, June 1, from 6 to 10 p.m. Call 821-2787 for details.

DiamondDiamondDiamondMore than 60 folk artists will be exhibiting their work at the sixth annual open house and garden party at Chapel Hill's Ginger Young Gallery, the premier folk art gallery in the Triangle. Folk art luminaries Howard Finster, Nellie Mae Rowe, Sybil Gibson, Mose Tolliver and Jimmy Lee Suddeth will be showing and selling their work, to benefit the Carolina Friends School. "This self-taught art by Southern artists is packed with whimsy and pathos," Young told the Indy. "It's very strong art, a kind of visual storytelling, textured, rich and beautiful." The exhibition and sale runs June 2 and 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ten percent of sales will go to Carolina Friends School, and there will be a silent auction of donated works by local "chainsaw artist" Clyde Jones. Preview the artwork at Call 932-6003 for details.
