The Carrollton Center for the Arts will showcase the works of a hometown artist and some west Georgia neighbors with two exhibits that launch next week.
As part of their Guild Swap program, an exhibition featuring artwork by members of the Douglas County Art Guild will be displayed in the center’s Galleria, July 20 – August 23.
“The exhibit presents a vibrant community of creative individuals investigating a lot of different media and themes,” said Carrollton Visual Arts Coordinator Marcella Kuykendall. “From colorful abstracts to more traditional landscapes, there is an art piece for everyone. Three-dimensional works and jewelry will also be on view.”
The Roush Gallery will host Peace, Love and Pottery, featuring Jackie Reed’s stoneware pieces, July 23 – August 27. Reed’s work is inspired by a playful use of natural imagery, patterns and a rich, layered glazing technique. His studio, Black Rock Falls Pottery, sells his work across the region and locally.
“Many might know Mr. Jackie Reed from the financial industry,” Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman said. “You many not know of his hidden talent, but we are ready to expose his gift of clay creations. His work is extraordinary.”
An opening reception for both shows is scheduled for July 23, at 5:00 p.m. at the center.
Southern Home and Garden/ACE Hardware is the sponsor for Peace, Love and Pottery.
