The Art of TuxedoKat

The Art

“TuxedoKat” is a state of mind to Artist Katlyn Cornelius. It is free flowing imagination mixed with unrelenting ambition. It is tangible works of art and opted-in experiences. It is choosing to feel it all and feeling sorry for none of it. #ExploreYourCrazy

LIM|NAL: The Space Between

Local Art Gallery Show

The Cabarrus Arts Council has invited Local Artist and Community Art Advocate, TuxedoKat, to curate The Galleries in The Historic Courthouse in Downtown Concord May 18 – July 22, 2023. TuxedoKat plans to showcase and celebrate the wide variety of creatives in Cabarrus County in her show titled “LIMINAL: The Space Between”.

LIM|NAL Performances

For the first time in Cabarrus Arts Council history, The Davis Theatre will host a performance that coincides with the works in The Galleries.

Creative expression takes many forms. To explore this, LIM|NAL will not only celebrate our local 2D & 3D creatives but also those on the performance front. You’ll be introduced to our local musicians, spoken word and rap artists, interpretive dancers, and more!

Stage Performance: Thursday, July 13, 7p.m. in the Davis Theatre

This is a FREE show, but we want to make sure we have room for everyone! So if you sign up, please do show up and support your neighbors!

Puddle Painting at High Branch every Monday at 6:30p

Puddle Painting is an intuitive art process where the participant pours an array of special paint colors into a cup and then onto their canvas where they then spread the colorful paint design around to reveal a unique piece of art that is sure to uplift and inspire all who participate!

Participants can choose between three canvas sizes!
