Exhibitions at the Arts Center
Three exhibitions fill the gallery spaces of the arts center this month, and all are created from the work of local artists.
The main gallery will feature the “Fired Up” exhibition which includes pottery by nine local artists: Pavel Amromin, Mary Kay Griffith, Jillian Heusohn, Tammy Marinuzzi, Kelly McLendon, Jaweria Rizvi, Cynthia Smith, Nolan Windholtz and Mandy Yourick.
In the Miller Gallery, works from the Bay Arts Alliance’s annual Royal Flippin Skateboard Competition are on display. This year it’s People’s Choice, which means it’s up to the community to decide who will be the show’s best, first and second place finisher. Come show your support and vote for your favorite deck.
Photographs by local artist Shelton Halstead will be on display in the cafe’s gallery. Using manual and digital film to create his photography, Halstead has used his exposure to show the moments he has captured over the years.
All three exhibits will be on display until August 27. The Center for the Arts at 19 E. Fourth St. is open and free to the public 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
