SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL

The new Pop Up Arts Shop at the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) for May features Penelope Davis.

Davis is a self-taught artist who has been been painting for over 35 years. She enjoys painting, drawing, and card making. She is originally from South Carolina and now resides here in Georgia.

Her favorite

subject matters are whimsical faces and florals, but loves working with all subject matters on some level.

Acrylic paint is her medium of choice and working with mixed media for which she can combine her love of paper and paint to create interesting effects in the backgrounds of her work.

“My work is influenced by fashion, nature, and just everyday life” Davis said.

Many of Davis’s works will be featured in this month’s Pop

Up Art Shop. Follow the CAC on social media to see her creations and purchase pieces from the comfort of your own couch.

The Pop Up Arts Shop is the place for amazing one-of-a-kind gifts created by local artists. Each month the CAC features a different artist that works with varying mediums.

Be sure to stop by the CAC for some amazing arts and crafts before they’re gone. The Cultural Arts Council is located at 8652 Campbellton St. in historic downtown Douglasville and

is open Monday through Friday, 9
