Exit Royal Realty and the Chilton County Arts Council will host a gallery showing at Elizabeth Hall in downtown Clanton on Aug. 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Charlotte Rowland of CCAC said Exit Royal Realty had contacted the Arts Council about doing a show.

The group is inviting local artists who would like to feature their work to participate.

“There is no entry fee,” Rowland said. No judging. “It is strictly just a public art show.”

Rowland said those interested in participating can contact her at 205-415-0211.

Each artist will be able to feature a few pieces in the show, but space is limited.

Rowland said artists can also put prices on their work to sell during the event.

The artwork featured will be a variety, including everything from pottery to paintings.

Rowland will have some of her watercolor paintings in the show.

In addition to giving artists a space to show their work, the event will help to promote the Arts Council.

“I don’t think a lot of people in Chilton County really are aware of what the art council does,” Rowland said. “We are a nonprofit organization. We like to promote different activities … and have more participation in the arts council.”

The Chilton County Arts Council hosts annual festivals and other events to promote the arts in Chilton County. For more information about CCAC, visit chiltoncountyartscouncil.com
