Exhibiting artists include: Charlotte Lou Atkins, Samuel A’Court Bason, Susan Brittingham, Ernest Bryant, Ron Campbell, Audrey Caywood, Rick Cooley, Lore Deighan, Susan Egbert, Aileen Fletcher, Glenda George, Art Haase, Winter Hart, Don Johnson, Fred Jones, Charlie Knighton, Floyd Bud Lohr, Gina Louthian-Stanley, Cheryl Mackian, Glenda McAlexander, Swede McBroom, Nathan Popp, Dennis Ross, Karen Sewell, Helen Shaw, Sylvester Simard, Kimberly Simmons, Gretchen St. Lawrence, Agnes Stringfellow, Teri Walters, Howard Wenger, and Gerri Young.
The center will bring some humor to the Hayloft Gallery in May with their “Make Me Laugh” exhibit. This exhibit challenged artists to have fun with their work and create pieces to get folks giggling in the gallery. It will run from May 4 through June 29 with a Meet-the-Artist reception on May 12 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Author and playwright Joe Maiolo will also be at the May reception for a reading from his newest book “My Turkish Missile Crisis.” He is well-known for co-writing the play “The Man Who Moved a Mountain,” which when produced by the Jacksonville Center more than a decade ago, was directed by the late Jo Burke and starred Michael Patton, Chris Shackelford and others during its successful run at the June Bug Center.
