AUBURN -- Art from Auburn is going places.
Seven Georgia Piedmont Arts Center member artists have their work displayed in the offices of the House Appropriations Committee at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta.
Rep. Terry England (R-Auburn), known as an arts supporter, invited GPAC to display in his offices, GPAC leaders said this week.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for both established and emerging GPAC artists," said Kathleen Gill, GPAC president. "Hundreds of people every week travel through the Appropriations offices."
Along with Gill, artists with work on display include Bobbie Austin of Social Circle; Henry M. Wood Jr. of Dacula; Richard Botters of Auburn; Renee Hewitt of Winder; Mia Rodriguez of Braselton and Bruce Bulau of Loganville.
GPAC, located at 1396 Third Ave. in Auburn, offers ongoing art instruction as well as specialty workshops, gallery exhibitions, tent festivals and open studio opportunities. They are currently enrolling students for Summer Art Camp -- half-day sessions the week of June 11 for 8- to 12-year-olds and the week of July 16 for ages 13 to 16.
Relocated from Winder, the not-for-profit center occupies a historic downtown house. Its mission is to "cultivate, facilitate and promote a community in which all art forms can thrive cooperatively," according to the center's website.
