Many galleries are showing new exhibits for the event, including the recently-opened Sean Pace Gallery (5 Walnut St.). That site hosts the book launch and faerie party for Greenward Turn: A Faerie Romp. About the project: “Greenward Turn: A Faerie Romp follows the adventures of the Gnarlicorn Faeries during their high summer gathering. A tribe of fun-loving, capricious earth faeries, the Gnarlicorns can be recognized by their jaunty horns and their unusual facial markings.” The event is also held at the new Wine Bar, also at 5 Walnut St. 6-9 p.m.
• American Folk Art & Framing (64 Biltmore Ave.) offers the exhibit FERTILE GROUND: Paintings by DARRELL LOY Scott and Pottery by LIZ Sparks. About the artists: “Darrell’s inspiration is the agrarian culture he loves. His paintings are so carefully rendered, he is inviting us to join in, an invitation gladly accepted. Liz has long been a force in the folk pottery traditions of our region. Her recent completion of the Masters program at Alfred University has influenced the pots created and chosen for this exhibit. Her current work reveals new elegant forms, rich tonal glazes and added functionality.” The artists’ reception runs from 5-8 p.m.; the show is on display through Friday, June 25.
• Woolworth Walk‘s featured exhibit, Contrast includes work by Kyle Keeler (glass) and Brenda McVey (fiber). Reception from 5-7 p.m. at 25 Haywood St.
