The Haywood County Arts Council (HCAC) is excited to announce an upcoming exhibition featuring original art from 12 local artists. 

The “2021 Juried Artist Exhibit” opens on April 2 and will run through May 1. Each of the exhibiting artists went through an extensive jury process to have their work in the gallery.

Artists included in this exhibit: Joan Bazzel, Linda Blount, Mary Decker, Peggy Duncan, Gayle Haynie, Alice Herring, Betsy Meyer, Jennifer Sharkey, Debbie Skelly, Carolyn Strickland, Cheryl Summey, and Lisa Townsend.

The “Juried Artist Exhibit” was launched in 2018 in order to feature jury-selected artists who specialize in a wide variety of mediums from: oil, acrylic, clay, watercolor, forged steel, coldwax, collages, wood, glass, fiber, jewelry, egg tempera, photography to mixed media. 

The Haywood County Arts Council believes that original art by local artisans can be both affordable and collectable. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
