Providence Gallery's new exhibit Summer Sojourn, takes viewers on an adventure through the sights of the natural landscapes and seascapes preserved on canvas by traveling artists. From as far away as Italy and as close as the Blue Ridge Parkway in N.C., these works of art really look like the real thing. On display through Aug. 3O. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Providence Gallery, 601-A Providence Road. 704-333-4535. www.providencegallery.net.
