Johnson County Center for the Arts’ December show features the work of thirty local artists and artisans. Participants were invited to create a work of art in response to the theme “My Appalachia.” Artisans could use any medium to explore what Appalachia means to them. Our region is home to a rich history and culture with music and traditional craft that tell the story of a people of depth and resilience. But we also face more than our share of adversity with disproportionate poverty, addiction rates, and all the side effects that come with these issues. Through exploring “My Appalachia”, we aim to strengthen our community, inspire pride in who we are, and foster creativity. There will be an opening reception on Friday, December 8th from 4-6 o’clock. The public is invited to attend.
