Charlotte Street Open Studios 

The gallery at 1816 Charlotte doesn't have a name yet, so owner Tarin Eicher has saddled it with a slightly ungainly temporary handle — Charlotte Street Open Studios. "We'll eventually give it a gallery name, and we'll be doing a grand-opening sort of a deal. The First Friday show is sort of preliminary," Eicher says, who inaugurates the space, along with a group of other artists, with an exhibit from 6 to 9 p.m. "It's a collection of artists that I know. Some have shown work in KC for a while. Some haven't. It's a collection of abstract and illustrative work ... probably about half and half." Artists include Eicher, Alex Hammil, James Jukes, Skip Bailey, Erick Warner and illustrator Marc Shank, who says, "A lot of my work is focused on a town I created, indicative of small-town life in general. It's populated by characters who have a lot of grit and texture to their personalities, and the work is trying to flesh out the work as a whole."
Fri., May 1, 6-9 p.m., 2009
