A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT


A Message From Bronwen Fullington, incoming President of CVA:

I am pleased to be chosen to lend my time and energy to the office of President of Clayton visual Arts. The group and its goals continue to grow and change, building on the solid foundation of past leaders. We have a great team of people as officers and on the board, with a pool of much talent and enthusiasm among the membership.

We will continue to mount wonderful monthly exhibits in the Clayton Center; we also plan for CVA to be more visible in the the community, starting with participation in the Clayton Farm and Community Market. We would also like provide more in the way of arts education for both youth and adults. Our ultimate dream would be to have a permanent space in downtown Clayton to showcase artists and offer classes.

I hope during my tenure to lead a congenial and effective group of advocates for art and artists. With the invaluable input and attention of the membership, I will strive to facilitate CVA as a strong voice for the arts in Clayton.

Looking forward to meeting you all one one day soon,

Sincerely ,

Bronwen

Art Council of Moore County’s annual exhibit

CALLING ALL VISUAL ARTISTS! Let us showcase your work at our annual Fine Arts Festival in August! The Moore County Arts Council created the Fine Arts Festival in 1980 to provide incentive for local artists to improve their technique and a place to showcase and sell their artwork. The festival has since grown into a major exhibit featuring artwork by artists from all over the country. The event also includes an art competition where the entries are judged and cash prizes and ribbons are awarded. Located in Southern Pines, this annual exhibit attracts several buyers, including Purchase Awards by local business owners. Art must be delivered the week of July 15–no preregistration necessary. More information here.
