The artwork of Lincoln County teachers will be on display at the Lincoln Cultural Center beginning this Sunday.
â€œOmnibusâ€ will feature the art of all kinds of teachers â€” public, private and home â€” who love to create. In previous years, the show only included the work of art teachers.
â€œI am very excited about the show because it is for all dabblers in art without being a competition and may start some teachers back on the road to creating more art,â€ said Debbie Scronce, a teacher at G.E. Massey Elementary School. â€œThe teachers have more talents than their ability to teach.â€
An opening reception will be held from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sunday in the Cochrane and Carolina Mills Galleries of the Lincoln Cultural Center, which is located at 403 E. Main St. Music will be performed by Barrie Howard and the public is invited to attend.
The exhibit will be displayed in the galleries until Sept. 28. The galleries are open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Teachers have been bringing their art and a card to describe the work to the Cultural Center since Wednesday.
At the present time, it is unknown how many pieces will be on display.
The project is supported by a grant provided by the grassroots arts program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency. by Staff Reports
