Mint Hill Arts is celebrating its third anniversary with the opening of its newest exhibition, Queen City Inspires. Though the title is pretty much self-explanatory, I'm still going to point out that it contains a variety of multimedia works — like Rudy Torrico's "Up Tryon from 3rd" (pictured) — inspired by the city of Charlotte.
Free admission. Exhibition continues through Sept. 30. Mint Hill Arts Fine Arts and Crafts Center, 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road. 980-226-5532. www.minthillarts.org.
