Community-wide visual art exhibit to be showcased through August 20

The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County will be displaying its community-wide visual art exhibit for the 17th year this summer. The exhibit showcases artwork made by artists in the community. 

The PWC Public Works exhibit will be on display until August 20 at The Arts Center, located at 301 Hay Street in downtown Fayetteville. The exhibit is free and open to the public. 

“This exhibit provides all people throughout our community an equal opportunity to publicly express themselves through their artwork,” said Robert Pinson, interim president of the Arts Council. “Doesn’t matter if they are 3 or 93 years of age, their background, or if they are highly trained or self-taught, there is a hidden artist in all of us. Art, and the messages the artists reflect through their work, is universal and can help start conversations. Through those conversations, we can further build our community.”

Started by The Ellington-White Community Development Corporation, the exhibition allows artists residing in Cumberland, Hoke, Robeson, Sampson, and Scotland Counties, Fort Bragg, and Pope Army Airfield to submit their artwork.

Participants of all ages and backgrounds can showcase their artwork in 2D and 3D paintings, drawings, print-making, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and more. 

Through July 25, gallery viewers can vote for the People’s Choice Honor. This recognition is given to the artists of select art pieces that receive the most ballets. 

Winners will receive a gift basket with unique items from downtown businesses, highlighted on the Arts Council’s social media, and interview with a local publication, and recognition from a representative from PWC.
