"I'm interested in memory and how we use it to create the stories of ourselves — our personal myths," shares artist Johan Hagaman. In his current exhibit at Hidell Brooks Gallery — opening with a reception on Jan. 6, from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. — mixed media works (like the pictured piece, titled "Believes") line the walls. Another new exhibit, Winding Rivers, features art by Brad Aldridge.
Continues through Feb. 18. Hidell Brooks Gallery, 1910 South Blvd., Suite 130. 704-334-7302. www.hidellbrooks.com.
