I am excited to announce some exciting changes to CAC's Board of Directors. Fresh ideas, and year in the works that invites all to participate. Click on the Staff listing to the right to see the list that will be introduced at our Annual General Meeting on June 28, at 5:30 PM. The meeting is open to the membership and the general public. The Arts Council belongs to you and we welcome your input, participation and interest. Art is a much valued facet in developing a well-rounded life.
Saturday the 14th, brought the Potters of the Albemarle to the Historic 1767 Chowan County Courthouse. CAC was please to bring the area potters together for the first, of what we hope will be an annual, pottery exhibit and sale.
There were 14 potters represented and amazingly each booth offered pieces that were truly exceptional and varied in style.
Pottery, in most cases, can be used for food, cleaned in the dishwasher (be careful that pieces do not bump together), and as serving pieces on the table. Then there are pieces that are purely ornamental and bring beauty into your living spaces.
We had a live demo by Jen Dwyer, who is a resident artist at Pocosin Arts in Columbia. This captured the attention of the very young to the more senior of those present.
Lauren Fulton, also a resident artist at Pocosin, did metal jewelry demos.
I had the pleasure of attending the front door for a short time and was reminded of how great Edenton is. I watched a father and son play soccer, a gentleman walking several dogs at once, a free-spirited dog who seemed to know everyone, including a neighborhood cat. People strolling with a cup of coffee, enjoying the beautiful view and a wonderful breeze. Small town living does not get any better than this.
Always have CAC as a part of your destination while you are downtown. Our art displays change almost weekly so there is always something new. The gift shop has unique items with something for everyone.
