As the first showcase of the year, the “Love” exhibition will run through March 3 at the Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery & Gifts showroom in downtown Waynesville. 

Through a diverse range of mediums such as paintings, glasswork, ceramics, quilting, jewelry and more, HCAC artists skillfully conveyed their personal interpretations of love.

This event not only marks the opening of an extraordinary exhibit, but also serves as the launch of the “Give a HeART” project. Dedicated artist members generously donated their time and art supplies to create unique pieces of art on wooden panel hearts.

These exquisite hearts will be available for purchase in the gallery until the end of February, with all proceeds directly benefiting the HCAC.

The HCAC gallery is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. For more information, click on haywoodarts.org.
