The arts calendar — at least what has come to my attention through e-mail and gallery websites — is rather spare this week, for some reason.

The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, or SECCA, in Winston-Salem invites teachers and other educators to Brooke Haywood’s one-woman show, which addresses issues of equity in schools, on Thursday at 6 p.m.

The Devil Is in the Details: Old Scratch, a photography exhibit by Ross Holt and Becky VanderVeen, opens on Friday in the Anne Rudd Galyon Gallery in the Cowan Humanities Building on the campus of Greensboro College.

The Creative Center in Greensboro holds a gallery reception on Jan. 27 from 4 to 6 p.m. to showcase new work in the Turn Up the Heat exhibit and give the public an opportunity to meet the artists. The reception also includes students from Greensboro Day School, who have an exhibit in the community gallery at the Creative Center through the end of the month.

Elaine Gustafson, curator of collections at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, gives a 30-minute talk about The Cone Sisters Collect exhibit at the museum on Jan. 30 at noon. The exhibit is on display through Feb. 17.

Samplers & Symmetry IV, the biannual exhibit of local African-American quilters at Delta Arts Center in Winston-Salem, opened on Monday and runs through March 16.

Other ongoing exhibits include Punto Vista: Latino Perspectives at Womble Carlyle Gallery in the Milton Rhodes Arts Center in Winston-Salem through Saturday; On the Path to Abstraction: Highlights of the Permanent Collection at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro through Feb. 10; and Vibha Galhotra’s Metropia and Frank Selby’s Misunderstanding at SECCA through Feb. 17.
