Open House and New Art Shows at Pickens County Museum

We here at the Pickens County Museum of Art & History are pleased to announce that we will host an Open House and opening reception for exciting new art shows from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, January 12, 2017.  These art shows feature multiple artists highlighting a broad range of talent and genres and will be on display through March 30th.

Warren Carpenter, Chris Troy, Robin Anne Cooper, Stan DuBose, and Cindy & Mike Hart comprise the Full Moon artists group.  They will exhibit a wide variety of turned bowls, pottery and traditional artwork, along with some whimsical pet portraiture.

For something completely different, Gregbo Watson, Mitch Rodgers, Anthony Summey, and Mel Rivera will exhibit their cutting edge graphic novel/comic book illustrations.  Colorful and vibrant, brash and dynamic, this artwork is sure to inspire the comic book heroes in all of us!  All four of these artists are widely published and regularly attend Comicon conventions throughout the United States.  Gregbo will hold workshops and a book signing throughout January, February and March. Information about how to register for one of the workshops and the date for the book signing will be announced soon and will be posted on Facebook and www.visitpickenscounty.com/calendar.

Come join us to welcome these fine artists to the Pickens County Museum of Art & History!  Enjoy some fine food from Little Bistro and take in a local jazz band to round out your evening.
