The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) brought in a new year of art and culture. The opening reception, in celebration of Black History Month, was a huge success. The CAC is showcasing artwork from contemporary artists of color in Together We Rise through February 21, 2018. Gallery admission, tours and receptions are always free. Special gallery tours are also available by appointment. Call the CAC at 770.949.2787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your tour today.
Fabian Williams, Brandon Moultrie, Charlotte Riley-Webb, Lucious Webb, Dante Yarbrough, and Tiffany Latrice are exhibiting artwork in Together We Rise. This year’s January-February show is honoring the bicentennial birthday of Frederick Douglass. DC Connection hosted a fabulous and well attended opening reception on Saturday, January 27th at the CAC. The exhibiting visionary artists were in attendance to discuss their work, along with local politicians, school board representatives, businesses, and friends of the CAC.
This show displays both 2D and sculptural artwork. Art duo Charlotte Riley-Webb and Lucious Webb collaborated to blend painting and metal sculpture. Dante Yarbrough blends painting with textile and found objects. Some of the artwork presented may encourage discussion about identity and history in today’s landscape. Other works explore the multi-faceted aspects and images for artists of color that want to represent all parts of the globe. Artwork at this exhibit ranges from brightly joyous to abstract and sultry, featuring a wide range of unique perspectives and styles.
