Bloom into Spring
Roush Gallery

Opening Reception: April 11, 5pm
Dates: April 11 through May 23
The Roush Gallery welcomes back the warm weather and beautiful days of spring with a juried exhibit celebrating the season. Members of the Carrollton Artist Guild will be challenged to produce work in their own style inspired by the theme and compete with one another for awards selected by a special guest juror. You can expect lively scenes, bright flowers and maybe a few surprises as artists interpret the time for new life and outdoor adventures. The guild is comprised of artists and artisans of various media. Their goal is to network, critique, share and promote local participation in the arts, including hosting two art shows per year and helping to sponsor other events such as the Arts Festival of Carrollton and Empty Bowls.

The Accidental Beauty of Rural America by Keith May
Galleria Hall

Opening Reception: May 30, 5pm
Dates: May 9 through June 7
A 2001 assignment to photograph the changing face of rural America led Keith May down a rabbit hole of dirt roads and lost highways, east to west, on a roaring silver Harley. “Go where the wind blows you and let pictures tell the story,” became more than his editor’s vague direction. The quietly provocative scenes included in his collection, The Accidental Beauty of the Rural South prove that the more things change, the more they stay the same and the best assignments never end.

The Art of Puppet People from the Studio of Angela Beasley
Roush Gallery

Audiences from all over the United States and abroad have laughed and sang along with Beasley’s signature cabaret shows for all ages. Objects on display will include shadow, marionette, hand and rod and much more, illuminating the world of puppetry. Popular cultural icons immortalized in puppetry, along with Angela’s imaginative characters from original plays and stories, will entice the young as well as the young at heart.
