Just after we started thinking NoDa was lacking in the arts because of gallery moves and shutdowns, NoDaRioty goes changing our minds. The organization's upcoming NoDa Studio Crawl on May 4 is going beyond the few remaining galleries in the hood, by featuring more than 13 artist studios in the surrounding area. (Side note: You'll need a car, as the locations aren't all within walkable distance). Paintings, sculptures and live music are all in store. Plus, you'll get to meet artists (including David French, whose pictured work has us craving a visit to Amelie's French Bakery) on their creative turfs.
Free admission. 5 p.m. For more information and a printable map of participating galleries/studios, visit www.nodarioty.org.
