As the town of Clinton celebrates its 350th anniversary in 2013, everyone is getting in the groove including members of the Clinton Art Society (CAS).
With permission from the 350th Celebration Committee, they will be hosting four separate and different art exhibits this year in the 350th Headquarters at 30 East Main Street.
Pat Barone, CAS member, said the theme of the four exhibits will be "scenes of Clinton."
"All of the art will be for sale," said Barone, "with ten percent of each sale going to the 350th Committee to help fund their year-long schedule of events and programs."
Look for the first exhibit to begin on Wed., March 6, from 5pm-7pm.
The first show, featuring about 15 pieces of work by seven artists, will run through the end of April. The next show will be in the May-June time-frame, followed by July-August and September-October.
The 350th headquarters building is the last building on the south side of East Main Street before you reach Indian River in the heart of downtown Clinton. It is open on Wednesday nights from 5-7pm and on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
As a side note, the CAS, founded in 1949, will be saluting Clinton's 350 with a Clinton-theme exhibit and sale at the Henry Carter Hull Library from March 5 to April 28. It is open to the public during library hours.
