CHOWAN ARTS COUNCIL 504 SOUTH BROAD STREET, EDENTON, NC 27932 252-482-8005
Chowan Arts Council - your Community Arts Center
Edenton's only Non-profit arts gallery
Our first 2016 exhibit is the Multi-County Student Art Exhibit. For this event, we send invitations to 6 area high and middle schools inviting the art teacher, or guidance departments in some cases, to select work from their first semester students to exhibit in the gallery. The work is judged by former art teachers from several counties. All of the work is judged 'blind' to keep it impartial. This event opened Jan. 14 and was a rousing success.
Above is the Best of Show entry done in colored pencil by Dustin Kirby. The piece is entitled "Rue". Last year, Dustin took first place honors for his entry. This personable young man has a wonderful talent.
The student art will hang until February 8th. Do come in and view the work. You may find a personal favorite that was not selected as a ribbon winner, but that happens in art. It creates discussion and careful attention to the details of each piece.
We are planning a de-stressing party...featuring adult coloring pages. No skill, talent or supplies necessary. Just come, sip some wine, and enjoy good company as you color away your stress. It is amazing to feel yourself relax as you focus on the coloring process. Feb. 2 is the date. Check our events page for more on this and what is happing at CAC.for the nest few months. Call the gallery for more information. 482-8005
