After 11 weeks that the Arts Center has opened it’s doors again. Please check HERE for the new hours and procedures for visiting. However, we have this incredible 45th Juried Show to share that we would like to continue to feature online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
Hi! I’m Bess Carter @besscarterart and I am a local artist and art educator. I am a 2000 graduate of the Lamar Dodd School of Art and I am currently employed as the art teacher at Oconee County High School. My inspiration definitely comes from my family and everyday beautifully imperfect life as a wife and working mom to four great kids. Seeing my art students find joy in making art and choosing to pursue creative careers is definitely a highlight of my job. My favorite color is unwaveringly YELLOW and COLOR and TEXTURE are my favorite elements of art. I recently designed and created the window display for @Epiphanyathens and I would love for you to check it out.
