Much of the arts action in the Triad this week goes down on Thursday, whether it be exhibit openings, artist talks or film.

In that vein, Associated Artists of Winston-Salem in partnership with Forsyth Futures, launches the Input/ Output exhibit with a reception at 5 p.m. The juried exhibit explores creative data visualization. Around the corner from Associated Artists’ West 4th Street gallery, the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts opens its juried members showcase on Thursday at the Womble Carlyle Gallery.

Over in Greensboro the Weatherspoon Art Museum previews PBS’s Art21: Art in the Twenty-First Century, featuring interviews with artists Marina Abramovic, Glenn Ligon and Mary Reid Kelley at 7 p.m. Ann Grimaldi, curator of education at the museum, facilitates a pre-screening discussion at 6:30 p.m. Also in Greensboro on Thursday, new visiting artists in residence, staff and special guests, including Lauren Moore, Martyna Szczesna, Megham MacDonald and Laura MacAulay, talk about concepts, culture and art at Elsewhere from 8 to 9 p.m.

Kernersville celebrates art, wine and music on Friday with Arts d’Vine. From 5 to 9 p.m. businesses in the historic downtown district will be transformed into art galleries.

The Green Hill Center for NC Arts closes its Roy Nydorf Four Decades exhibit on June 10. Also, as the new week begins, Burlesque of the Triad holds a meet and greet to discuss art at M’Coul’s Public House in Greensboro at 7 p.m.

The Weatherspoon offers a 20-minute docent-led tour on June 12 from noon to 12:20 p.m.
