Sharptop opens community artist show Nov. 15th


Talking Rock artist, Jo Wells Davis will be introducing her “Textured Light Art” glass sculptural art work at the latest Sharptop show.


If you have art in your soul you will want to mark your calendar for November 15th, 5 p.m. when area artists will open the doors to their most recent creations displayed at Sharptop Arts Center on D.B. Carroll just around the corner from Stearns Bank.

This year’s show will debut the works of new artists who have joined Pickens’ talented community as well as the art of cherished established artists who dwell among us.

“Home for the Holidays” opens Friday, November 15th at 5 p.m. with a reception recognizing artists who have submitted work for the show.  New members are encouraged to join Sharptop Arts Center and feature their work at this popular annual event.


Unique to this year’s show will be the Silent Auction featuring numerous wreathes and works of art donated by participating artists.  During the reception, attendees can explore the art on display, meet the artists, and bid on items of interest.  Promptly at 7:30 p.m., the Center will announce winners and present items.

End the day and start the joy of the season with us on Friday the 15th, where the doors will be open to a world of local talent.  Casual, come from the office ready to release tension and fall into the eye-opening world of art.  Refreshments will be served.

Talking Rock artist, Jo Wells Davis will be introducing her “Textured Light Art” glass sculptural art work that earned her Honorable Mention at the 2012 National Arts Program, Hartsfield International Airport.  Jo takes stained and architectural glass to a new dimension expressing her unique perspective of nature assisted by the changing influence of light.

Impressionistically inspired artist, Ellen Minion, brings her joyful work that reflects the beauty of nature that graces our surrounds.  Her academic art training blended with her God given talent to take her into a career of teaching emerging artists as a Georgia middle school art instructor.  The benefits of retirement now allow her to enjoy her passion and share it with others as her work will demonstrate.

New to Pickens County, artist Beth Hayes will have on display recent oil paintings that tell the story of her journey as a painter and voyeur of the world around her.  Attendees will enjoy not only viewing her work but also hearing, first hand, how she has pursued her artistic goals under the tutelage of highly recognized artists.
