A Master’s Winter: A Child’s View
Douglas County students winter art competition
Douglasville, Georgia – The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County presents the annual winter art competition featuring work from Douglas County students from grades kindergarten through twelfth. The show is called A Masters Winter: A Child’s View. Students studied masterpieces throughout art history and were encouraged to parody the artwork by putting a winter seasonal spin on each piece. The CAC Gallery Committee will be judging the competition. Prizes are sponsored by The Red Cockerill Gallery in Austell. The opening reception for A Master’s Winter will be held on Thursday, November 29th, 2018 from 5 pm – 7 pm. Please join us for drinks and light refreshments hosted by the Cultural Arts Council’s Gallery Committee and D.C. art teachers. The show will be on display from November 29th until December 18th during regular business hours of 9 am – 5 pm, Monday- Friday. Gallery admission, tours, and receptions are free. If you’re interested in a special gallery tour, please call the CAC to schedule an appointment (770.949.2787), but no appointment is necessary for casual drop-in viewings.
The reception will also feature performances by local artists. Mr. and Mrs. Claus will also be making a guest appearance at the reception. Winners of this year’s art competition will be judged on originality, composition, craftsmanship, and creative use of the show’s theme. Students learned about these elements of design and how they were used in the artwork they studied before recreating the masterpieces themselves. The parodies do not have to be winter “holiday” specific but are rather an interpretation of what winter means to each student and how they chose to combine their interpretations with the masterpieces.
