NEW “POP UP ARTS SHOP” at the CAC
Check out the new Pop Up Arts Shop at The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC). For May, the CAC is featuring the creative works by Jackie Chapman.
Jackie Chapman received a specialist degree from the University of West Georgia in special education and was a teacher for 29 years in the Douglas County School System. Jackie began exhibiting at craft shows in 1980 and has worked with many types of media including tole painting, soft sculpture, sewing, and woodworking. After taking a few classes from a dear friend, Jackie purchased a kiln and some clay and starting creating her pottery masterpieces. Each piece has its beginnings in a 25lb bag of stoneware clay and is hand built or hand thrown and then decorated with flowers, leaves, birds, frogs, turtles, and glazes. Her inspiration comes from nature, whimsy, and just about anything that she comes in contact with. Jackie resides in Douglas County with her husband Robert of 47 years, has one daughter, and three grandchildren
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.
