If you’re a day trip or less from Charlotte this weekend don’t miss this event. Most people know The Avett Brothers for their Southern-rooted folk rock, but a lesser-known dimension is founding brother Scott Avett’s fine art skills. Die-hard fans might recognize his work from album art and posters he’s created for the band.

Scott got his BFA in painting from East Carolina University in the 1990s and has since been creating his figurative paintings focused on portraiture and spirituality in between winning over the music industry with his brothers, Seth Avett, and Bob Crawford. On Saturday, his latest exhibit, "Exploring Story & Spirituality," will be on display at the Morrison Condominiums in Charlotte's South Park neighborhood, where attendants will be able to to buy original works and commemorative posters.
