charlotte-north-carolina-events-caw-18

The 18th Charlotte Art Weekly has commenced this week enlisting all the enriching events of the city within a single creative image. An image that not only represents story of a Charlottean creator but also unique happenings including subjects of art, culture, literature, photography, theatricals and music. When was the last time you attended a creative creation instead of going for just another movie? The CAW is not only helping to give ear and eyes to the local talent of the city but also providing the audience an opportunity to make the best use to their time, energy and money.

The 18th edition of CAW is dedicated to American singer, actor and television personality Tamara Faye LaValley Bakker Messner alias Tammy Messner. Born in Minnesota Tammy was associated with television while she moved to Charlotte along with her husband, where they started of with a puppet show in 60s and found The 700 Club television program on CBN successively with The PTL Club.
