“A Tiny Fundraiser” continues at the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County, in partnership with the CAC Satellite organizations.
For each mini Thursday night reception, the CAC will remain open until 7 p.m. with themed nights, refreshments, and pop up art demonstrations.
The CAC invites citizens to “enjoy the fun, relax, and get in touch with your creative side while you support the arts where you live.”
The exhibit features a room filled with 6x6 artwork by artists all around the community, each for sale at only $20. All proceeds raised will help support the CAC’s mission and programs throughout the year. Guests at receptions will receive raffle entries into nightly drawings. In addition, purchasers will receive a raffle entry into a larger prize drawing at the finale “Fiesta de Arte” reception on Aug. 20.
On Aug. 6, the Sweetwater Camera Club will host a “Summer Popsicle” mini reception for the public. While following state regulations and best practices for the safety of all, Sweetwater Camera Club invites everyone to join them to view the gallery and share some laughs with activities to boot.
The concurrent exhibit in July and August is the Art Guild Swap; Carrollton Art Guild will have work displayed at the Cultural Arts Center of Douglasville/Douglas County through Aug. 27. The Douglas County’s own Art Guild will be displayed at the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center.
