CAC.jpgLenoir, NC – The Caldwell Arts Council invites artists to create and exhibit work in the “Thinking Inside the Box” Exhibition August 5-October 1. Participating artists will design and provide artistic boxes or works that contain a box or boxes for display on walls and pedestals in the upstairs gallery. Each artist is invited to submit up to two works for the exhibit.

Instructor Jane Wells Harrison will provide instruction and brainstorming on use of assemblage elements, encaustic and other mixed media possibilities for these works in a workshop to be held June 20-23 (9am-4pm daily) at Patterson School in Happy Valley/Lenoir.

Those who participate in the workshop will have guaranteed inclusion of at least one work in the “Thinking Inside the Box” art exhibit at the Caldwell Arts Council. It is not necessary to participate in the workshop to enter this show; however, work done outside of the workshop experience will be subject to a jurying process by artists Jane Harrison and Bob Ebendorf.

All details are available on the Caldwell Arts Council website:

The Patterson School Campus is located in Lenoir on Highway 268, just past the Chapel of Rest (mile marker 3). To register for the workshop, call the Caldwell Arts Council at (828) 754-2486.  Fee for the 3-day series is $80.
