The Carroll County Arts Center is a wonderful center for local artists to display and sell their art work. The center is housed in an old barn that has lovingly been restored. Once again a good example of what a small town of local people can accomplish when focused. This was built by donations and fund raisers.
The center offers many activities for adults as well as children of all ages. Some of the classes include sand casting, mosaic tiles, painting, drawing, art appreciation, music and clay masks to name a few.
One of the recent events was a show entitled Carroll County Collage. Artworks had to include scenes depicting life in Carroll County, its people and places. Each artist could submit three works for judging and all pieces would be for sale. Ribbons were given for first, second, third place, and a people’s choice award.
The winners of the People’s choice awards were Randy Hull, second place, and Jim Goings, first place, for their photographs of Carroll County scenes.
There were many outstanding works of art and I selected a couple to show. My personal favorite was done by Cheri Bell with a scene she painted looking out the window of Whispering Pines to the prominent barn gracing the landscape.
Congratulations to all the very talented people of Carroll County.
Hope to see you soon,
