New exhibits at the Carrollton Center for the Arts showcase out-of-the-ordinary media and feature expanded access for art lovers via their favorite digital devices.
People may see Candyland Art Collective’s Cheating Sameness and Faye Byrd’s Color and Movement: Experiments in Acrylic Pour shows in person at the center. Digital tours of both shows launched this week on the center’s website and social media channels so people could explore the exhibits from home if they didn’t want to or couldn’t visit the gallery in person.
“These two exhibits are very different, but both illustrate an element of play,” said Carrollton Visual Arts Coordinator Marcella Kuykendall. “In Color and Movement, you can see the artist’s playful experimentation with the medium. The artwork in Cheating Sameness imbues a sense of fun into the works through bright neon colors, imagery and sculpted Shrinky Dinks.”
The receptions that traditionally open the center’s exhibits have been combined and rescheduled as a closing reception, July 2, at 5:00 p.m.
Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman said both exhibits have echos in other Center for the Arts programming this summer, including a Shrinky Dinks-based installment of the popular Gallery Play workshop series, July 1, and Byrd’s Color and Movement acrylic pour camps, June 8-12 and July 20-24.
“These new concepts have many different types of techniques and styles,” Chapman said. “Join in one of our summer camps or Gallery Play Saturday and learn for yourself.”
