CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A new indoor art gallery and store is open in NoDa. The owner hopes it gives local artists a boost.
The TAC Gallery officially opened its doors Sunday. It’s located next to the music venue "The Evening Muse".
“I think it is a great temporary use of the space to buy some time,” Matt Alvis, the owner of the new TAC Gallery, says. “It’s going to bring some art back to NoDa and give something else to do while a lot of the bars and venues are still closed.”
Alvis says this gallery is a lifesaver for artists because many of their events have been cancelled due to COVID-19.
“To have artists in that space, I think that is brilliant,” Charlotte artist Chris Hood says. “Artists' shows have been cancelled. Many of us still aren’t working. We appreciate anything that can be done now.”
Artist Woody Williams, also known as “Funky Geezer,” normally displays his work on street corners of NoDa and he’s happy to have an indoor location to display some art.
“It stays out of the weather and you don’t have to be moving it all the time,” Williams says.
Art pieces in the gallery range in price, with some of the cheaper items starting at $10. Alvis says the TAC Gallery is a temporary retail gallery open through the end of October. Their hours of operation are Tuesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
