NEW “POP UP ARTS SHOP” at the CAC
Check out the new Pop Up Arts Shop at The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County. For October, the CAC is featuring Brittany Gilbert.
Holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art, Brittany never chose one medium upon which to concentrate. She loves to dabble in whatever material available at whatever time the opportunity strikes. From paper sculpture to ceramics, or painting on any surface that begs decoration, Brittany explores creativity where the chance arises. “I have always felt compelled to make things that will inspire others about life, whether it be writing a story or imagining a play. Creating artwork is the one place in my life where I can truly go with the flow and feel most comfortable.”
Brittany likes to inspire people to let go of the rigidness of perfectionism and instead have fun, like a child fearless about drawing the first mark on white paper. Making a “mistake” can be a doorway to discovery, and new artwork can always be made again…again…and again.
The Pop Up Arts Shop is the place for amazing one-of-a-kind gifts created by local artists. Each month the CAC features a different artist that works with varying mediums. Be sure to stop by the CAC for some amazing arts and crafts before they’re gone! The Cultural Arts Council is located at 8652 Campbellton Street in historic downtown Douglasville and is open Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
