Lucas Mansion Gallery Features Kid’s Summer Art Camp Exhibit” “Painting With the Masters, Take Two”


Meet the Artists Reception Set for Sunday, August 6th

The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center is pleased to present a new exhibit honoring works created by the talented young artists of the Center’s annual Kid’s Summer Art Camp. For the first time, the students’ works will be featured in the Lucas Mansion Gallery for a two-month exhibition.

This year’s Art Camp theme was, “ Painting With the Masters, Take Two.” Each week, campers learned about master painters like Van Gogh, Matisse, and Warhol to name a few. The students created works inspired by the style of art they studied in class.

The exhibit features a diverse range of mediums including drawing, pottery, collage, and more. Because the Art Camp is still in session, the exhibit will grow as newly completed works are added to the show.

A Meet the Artists Reception will be held in the Lucas Mansion Gallery (316 Hiddenite Church Road in Alexander County) on Sunday, August 6, 2017 from 3:00pm – 4:30pm. The reception will offer light refreshments, is free to attend, and open to the public.

The exhibit will continue on display in the Lucas Mansion Gallery during the months of July and August 2017 and is free to visit during the Center’s operating hours, which are Monday – Friday from 10am – 4:30pm and on Saturday from 10am – 3pm.

Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center events, exhibits, and programs are made possible in part through the generous funding of Alexander County government, the Town of Taylorsville, the Eileen and R. Y. Sharpe Family Foundation, The Winston Salem Foundation, Duke Energy, the Catawba Valley Community Foundation, the Friends of the Center membership program, and by the Grassroots Grant of the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Lucas Mansion and Educational Complex are wheelchair accessible.
