‘Small Packages’ Returns to Arts Center

The annual Small Packages show, featuring works likely to fit in a gift box, kicks off the Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Christmas season, November 3 – December 15.

Holiday shoppers can buy original artwork at the exhibit. These works, created by members of the Carrollton Artist Guild, fit within a cubic foot of space and come in a variety of media and styles. Carrollton Writers Guild members’ books, poems and other writings will also be available at the show. 

“I believe it is important to shop local and we should remember our local artists and writers when thinking about gifts for family and friends,” said Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “All of these items are original pieces, created here in Carroll County. Every year, I purchase presents and am always proud to share with my loved ones information about the artists whose work I selected that year for gifts.”

All purchased artwork may be taken home immediately.

“We are excited to have the exhibit back on display,” said Visual Arts Coordinator Marcella Kuykendall. “I am always delighted by the cool, festive and beautiful items that come from the members of the artist and writers guilds. Because of the show, I can enjoy art and go shopping at the same time, so what’s not to look forward to?”  

Also on display at the center are the Season’s Greetings Cards and Playing With Art exhibitions. A reception celebrating all three exhibitions will be held November 3, from 5 – 7 pm.
