Spring for the Arts Council has meant time to celebrate the wonderful visual artists in our community for many years, and this year we are going to start even earlier!
PHC Arts will be kicking off our showcases on February 5th with our first Young Artist Showcase. This showcase will exhibit artists from Kindergarten through High School and will include a variety of mediums. What better way to start the year than to have an exhibition of the inspiring young talent from our community? If you know a budding artist who would like to participate, the entry is free and you can sign up easily right on our website.
As if that isn't exciting enough, thanks to our generous sponsors we are offering free workshops to these local young artists each Saturday in January. Check our website for more information and to reserve a spot today. Each young artist will have the opportunity to create a piece that they can enter into the Young Artist Showcase. We will provide the supplies and the experience of a local artist to guide these budding artists.
March brings us to our 25th annual Photo Showcase, brought to you by the continued and generous patronage of Dr. and Mrs. Kimberlin. Our 25th year will open on March 5th and to celebrate we will have some special displays included in the showcase. One very special display will include photos taken around the world by Paris native Cherry Jones. These photos will be up for auction at the end of the showcase. Check back to our website for details, coming soon.
We finish our series with the 32nd annual Artist Showcase, opening April 2. This beautiful showcase of our immensely talented artist community is a well loved tradition in Henry County.
Make sure to come to Lee Academy of the Arts during these showcases to see more of what makes our community so great!
