Fall means a new season of art is at hand for the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta. The wonderful Hamburg exhibit allows schoolchildren and teachers to view this exhibit of a unique period of history in North Augusta. During September and October we will have a display by the Clay Artists of the Southeast (CASE) and the North Augusta Artists Guild members (NAAG).
CASE artists use clay as their primary medium. They live and work primarily in the Augusta, Aiken and Barnwell areas. They came together to share ideas, explore techniques, provide inspiration and promote community awareness of ceramic arts in the community. They provide ceramic experiences and education, including those with special needs and the disadvantaged.
Bon Appetit is a clay exhibition that will feature 14 clay artists. This exhibition will run through Oct. 19.
The NAAG exhibit, which opened Thursday, features 18 members working in various mediums.
It is in the second floor gallery at the Arts and Heritage Center. Each member will be exhibiting two pieces of art. The NAAG is made up of 72 members from the Greater North Augusta area.
The NAAG is celebrating its 10th anniversary in October and will have its celebration with artists on site during the opening reception with CASE on Oct. 6 at the Arts and Heritage Center.
The Westobou exhibit will open in mid-October with more details coming in the next column.
Don’t forget to check out the artist of the month at local businesses who support our artists: Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta, Beveled Edge Art and Frame Gallery, the Greater North Augusta Chamber of Commerce, North Augusta Family Y, Jim Bush Flower Shop and Quality Printing. We thank them for their support of the arts.
Remember, a life without art is just ‘‘eh.”
YVONNE KINNEY IS THE PRESIDENT
