VISUAL ARTS

Enriching Human Experience through the Arts

Putting art at the heart of a community enhances our lives and inspires us to think beyond the norm. Each artist expresses their feelings and creativity in unique ways. That is why it is so important to feature artists, their work and teachings at both the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.

NOW IN THE BANKHEAD GALLERY

TAKE ME THERE: TRAVEL THE WORLD THROUGH ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY
JULY 1 – AUGUST 29, 2021

Take Me There: We miss travel. We love foreign lands, we love domestic lands, we love a day trip down the road and we love an around-the-world journey. The mystery, the excitement, the learning, the exploring. Maybe you’ve booked your trips, but maybe you’re waiting until the world settles down. Get a jump start on your travels the armchair route: dream and explore through art and photography all the wonders that we’ve missed.

Travel the world through Art!

 

Guest Artist Charlotte Severin will be displaying 25 of her artworks with scenes from her travels around the world. On display in the Founders Room.
