Episode 124: Today I talk to local artist & entrepreneur, Cass Bradley. It is so inspiring! She talks about she “escaped” a successful corporate career and made a very successful artistic career. She did it! She is a master at juggling many pursuits and passions simultaneously. [p.s. that obnoxious thud is from me dropping my phone. #sorry].

Episode 122: Today I talk to Sonya Pfeiffer, owner of the Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art, [also a criminal defense attorney] here in Charlotte, NC. We talk about the William A. Noguera exhibition, On the Mezzanine. This chat is really special because William actually calls in from San Quentin prison, where he lives and makes his work. The exhibition goes until June 15, 2019.

Episode 116: Today I talk with Wendy Hickey of ArtPop Street Gallery. Wendy is known as the “fairy art mother,” here. She puts art on unused and available spaces like billboards and newspaper stands. She’s literally turning our city into an art gallery. [It makes waiting in traffic fun]!
