Workshop: Upcycling Gift Bags and Boxes

The Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Gallery Play workshop, Upcycled Gift Bags & Boxes, on November 23, will show participants how to make and decorate colorful gift containers using an assortment of art materials, recyclables and their own creativity.

“It is amazing to me what you can do with bits of paper, scraps from craft projects and other leftover items,” said the center’s visual arts coordinator, Marcella Kuykendall. “This workshop will be a creative exploration of upcycling craftiness, with Alan Kuykendall participating as one of the instructors. If you have a particular small present in mind or want to purchase a piece from our Small Packages exhibit, we can help come up with ideas to beautifully conceal that special gift.”

The workshop runs from 6 – 7:00 p.m. All ages are welcome, but young children will need assistance from their parents. Those wanting an evening of the arts can stick around for the Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors, which starts at 7:30 p.m. The registration fee for the workshop is $10. Amahl tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for youth. Call 770-838-1083 or visit https://carrolltonarts.com/ to register, buy tickets or for more information.

Wondering & Wandering is Genre-Blending Exhibit

Renowned surrealist painter, Carrie Ann Baade’s show, Wondering and Wandering, will open doors and windows of imagination at the Carrollton Center for the Arts, October 24 – December 7.

“Baade’s work is a beautiful blend of imagery inspired by paintings of the past and surreal figures that elicit both a sense of mystery and elegance,” said Marcella Kuykendall, Carrollton’s visual arts coordinator. “The artist reflects upon issues such as morality, politics and the individual quest for self-expression. Visitors will enjoy investigating the rich details and symbols in each work for the stories they hold and the fantastical worlds and characters they create.”

Baade uses remnants of Renaissance and Baroque paintings to create surreal landscapes inhabited by exotic figures. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and solo exhibitions at the Delaware Contemporary, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles, the Ningbo Art Museum in China and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida. Raised in Colorado, Baade now lives and works in Tallahassee as associate professor of painting and drawing at Florida State University.

The exhibit is sponsored by Walt D’Ambrosio and Susan Thomas. There will be a Halloween-themed opening reception featuring live musicians on October 24 at 5:00 p.m.
