A Whimsical World of Art – “No Boundaries” Exhibit Opens

The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) anticipates seeing the community on the evening of July 7, from 6-8 pm, for the opening reception of the newest exhibit “No Boundaries.” The show will be on display July 5-August 23, weekdays from 9 am – 5 pm, with extended hours every Thursday from 5-7 pm through the end of the exhibit.

On the evening of July 7, from 6-8, Beyond the Front Porch hosts the night with catered delicacies by Sanko Catering. Grab a drink and mingle with friends and artists. The “No Boundaries” exhibit is full of surprising natural elements, such as embroidered leaves created by Heather O’Donnell that will take your breath away. The exhibit is an ode to the magic of nature and imagination with a folk-art vibe, such as in Manami Lingerfelt’s enchanting artworks with motifs of mushrooms, mermaids, and fairytale creatures. Dan and Mary DeFoor showcase their “Spirit” clay pottery celebrating historical spiritual songs mixed with pottery, such as one from the “Wayfaring Stranger,” and another sacred to Africa. Kimberly Dawn Crowder provokes an energy of beauty with bright colors and spiraling paints in bees, fruits, swimmers, and muses.

In conjunction with the “No Boundaries” exhibit is the CAC’s annual Tiny Fundraiser for the year 2022. Artists throughout the community have joined creative forces to present an exhibit in the CAC’s community room, featuring every 6×6 artwork at $20 to support the arts. The 6×6 unique artworks will be available to purchase on the evening of July 7, and will continue to be on sale Thursdays from 5-7 pm through August. Summer Pop Up parties will take place Thursdays at the CAC where the community can eat local and shop small, in conjunction with the Tiny Fundraiser. These dates are July 14, 21, 28, and August 4, 11, and 18 so mark your calendar and bring friends and family out. Attend each Pop-Up Party to shop new pieces in the Tiny Fundraiser and to sample new local cuisine.
