Youth Art Month is nationally celebrated, and every year the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County joins in the celebration by inviting our local schools to participate in making artwork to exhibit. The subject matter and art forms are open to artistic liberty as youth kindergarten-12th grade bring to our walls their most inspired pieces from the year and their explorations.
This year, no opening reception will take place. Instead, the CAC will offer private tours, will prepare a virtual experience for the families and artists, and will provide goodie bags to visitors of the youth exhibit.
Susan Knight Smith, Sally Storey Jones, Coe Steinwart, Laura Smith…four great artists come together to celebrate the “Early Days” in the memorable line-up of work displayed May 10-June 24. The exhibit will reflect the agelessness of a world around us, as artists explore times past and quaint moments that help us to take a step back, worthy of pause.
Come pause with us at the gallery to view the timeless exhibit and celebrate the opening reception on Thursday, May 13, 5-7 pm. The evening will be hosted by Douglasville’s own “Farmer’s Table” who will serve up an old fashioned favorite – ice cream and cobbler.
