    Sozo Gallery

    INSPIRING SOULFUL CONNECTIONS SOZO Gallery, a contemporary visual art gallery located in Charlotte, North Carolina, represents local and national artists, and works with local collectors and corporate art clients. We believe in three things: people, community, and art. We especially believe in all that is made possible when these elements coalesce naturally. The gallery’s soul is rooted in its name. In Greek, Sozo means ‘to be healed by God, to make well’; in Japanese, the same word means ‘to create; to imagine’. This epic combination of meanings defines how we operate as a gallery, team, and creative, community leader. SOZO Gallery is a visionary access point in the Southeast that brings fresh, original artwork by emerging and established talent from around the world to Charlotte Read more [...]


    ArtPop Street Gallery

    In a time when arts budgets are on the chopping block and we struggle to disconnect from our devices, public art is more important than ever.

We are quite literally a street gallery: We promote the work of local artists on available media space — billboards, buses, news racks, airports — and turn roads, highways and thoroughfares into opportunities for artistic appreciation and discovery. Why does our work matter? Because art matters. It’s good for your brain, your children, Read more [...]
