Don't miss Come Hear NC: Benny Hill. This concert is part of CAM's Come Hear NC series, funded in part by the North Carolina Arts Council and AARP North Carolina. Benny Hill is steeped in the tradition of many of the past greats including Julian ‘Cannonball’ Adderley, Jackie McLean, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane and Charlie Parker. His improvisations on the Alto Saxophone are reminiscent of these greats, yet he has a distinct style and voice of his own. Benny is a true crowd-pleaser and never fails to raise excitement and enthusiasm while on stage. This concert will also be livestreamed on CAM's Facebook page and YouTube channel. Come early for brunch at CAM Cafe. Call 910-777-2363 for reservations.

A new documentary about the life and art of Audrey Flack.
Octogenarian artist Audrey Flack has always been a trailblazer. In this intimate portrait of her life and work, she returns to her canvas for the first time in decades, revealing her longtime struggles as an artist and mother to find her rightful place in the art world.
Film Inquiry: “What’s refreshing about Deborah Shaffer and Rachel Reichman‘s look is how intimate and personal it feels, grounding a remarkable woman in a very personable and extraordinary light…This is what art is for, creating a kind of symbiosis between creator and audience.”
Unseen Films: “…a wonderful portrait of a mover and shaker in the art world, who is also one hell of a grand lady.”
Forbes, The Artiest Films From New York’s Documentary Film Festival: “…she has been an incredible photorealist, armed with a convincing spray brush. Now, the artist finally gets her due in this documentary.”
Registrants will receive a one-time code that will allow them access to the film.
