Dubeau, Carruth Featured in Hartwell Show

Anderson Artists Guild members Debra Taylor Dubeau and Rebecca Lawson Carruth each have three pieces in the 24th Annual Juried Art Exhibit at The Art Center on the square in Hartwell, Georgia. The show opened on June 14 and runs through August 4. Dubeau works in oil, which she appreciates for its many nuances. “It’s buttery, fluid, forgiving,” she said. “You can change it, build it, blend it on the canvas or on the palette.” Forever and Ever, based on a friend’s photo, portrays a pair of parakeets. “I was trying to relay the emotion of love and their affection for each other,” she said.

Garret Hamm and Wendy Rogers Part of Current Show in Anderson

The oil paintings of Anderson Artists Guild members Garret Hamm and Wendy Rogers are currently on display at the Anderson Arts Center as part of the “Aspects of Oil” show, a three-artist exhibit which opened on June 8 and runs through July 20.

Pendleton Square Artists Cooperative Hosts an Active Gallery

Four members of the Anderson Artists Guild belong to the Pendleton Square Artists Cooperative: Debbie Bzdyl, Rebecca Carruth, Lou Koppel, and Lori Solymosi. This cooperative requires several commitments but offers an opportunity to show and sell their artwork.
