Lenoir, NC – The Caldwell Arts Council is pleased to host two exhibitions featuring work by more than 60 artists during the month of May.

Frozen In Time will feature a series of icebergs photography titled “Floating Blue” by New York City photographer Thomas Pickarski (ThomasPickarski.com) along with Lenoir clay artist Larry Moore’s organic sculptural body of work which is inspired by quiet moments spent along the seashore.

New Bern, NC colored pencil artisan Donna Slade (donnasladeart.com) will present her “Faces of Columbia” traveling exhibition, and Winston-Salem native and current Bethesda MD resident Katie Stevens Corman (katiecorman.com) will showcase her drawings of people – sketching from photos, capturing a feeling, an emotion, or a mood in her work.

The Western Arts Agencies of North Carolina (WAANC) have coordinated a unique traveling art display “Postcards from the Edge,” featuring postcard-sized artwork created and donated by area artists to raise awareness and funds in support of the mission of the eight arts councils involved.

The traveling Postcards exhibit will feature approximately eighty postcard-sized paintings framed in elegant black frames. The artwork is nominally priced with sales revenue being shared by the presenting arts councils and the Western Arts Agencies.

An opening reception for both of these wonderful exhibitions will be held Friday, May 3, 2019, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., hosted by the Lenoir Service League. The exhibitions will continue through May 31 – free and open to the public – Tuesday-Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

The “Postcards from the Edge” exhibition is coordinated by the Western Arts Agencies of North Carolina (WAANC), whose mission is to strengthen the arts community in Western North Carolina through peer support, shared resources, and collaborative programming. To accomplish this mission, the Western Arts Agencies works diligently to provide services to member organizations; to provide programs that nurture arts administration professionals and to provide programs which support the work of local arts organizations. These programs and mission are accomplished through the efforts of a volunteer board consisting of Western North Carolina arts council executive directors.

The Caldwell Arts Council presents the arts in all its forms to the people of Caldwell County. Located at 601 College Avenue in Lenoir, the Caldwell Arts Council is open Tuesday-Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm, free to the public. Phone 828-754-2486; Website www.caldwellarts.com.
