Fall Art Exhibits at the Carroll Arts Center

The Carroll Arts Center is proud to be hosting new art exhibits from August 30 through November 3, 2018 that will showcase a variety of artistic styles.

In the Tevis Gallery, “Synergy” features three dynamic Carroll County artists who come together for an energetic, thought-provoking exhibit. Tara Will’s pastels vibrate with each stroke of color. Michelle Tangires, who recently graduated with an MFA at American University, creates studies of language and letters in paint and photography. Multi-discipline artist, Charlie Maioriana, will complete the exhibit with his 3-dimensional, sculptural orbs and flow paintings.

Also on exhibit in the Community Gallery, the Carroll County Camera Club presents “The World Through Our Eyes” with new works in a variety of photographic styles. Different programs of digital alteration combined with each artist’s unique style creates an outstanding exhibit that is always a welcome surprise.

A third exhibit will be on display from September 13 to November 3 in the Director’s Hall Gallery featuring artwork by Carroll County Public School Art Teachers. We proudly showcase work of the elementary and middle school students during Youth Art Month and now it is time to showcase the artistic styles of their teachers.

The public is invited to a celebratory reception for all three exhibits on Thursday, September 13 from 5 to 7 pm. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar will be part of the festivities. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The Carroll Arts Center is located at 91 W. Main St. Westminster, MD. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are: M, W, F, Sa, 10 am – 4 pm and Tue and Thurs, 10 am – 7pm. The gallery is also open during special events in the theatre. Please check our web site www.carrollcountyartscouncil.org for more information.

Since 1993, more than 14 million Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) supporters have raised more than $870 million nationwide. Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
MSABC unites communities, honors those touched by the disease, and raises awareness and funds for a world without breast cancer. MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, with more than 1 million participants each year. Their efforts are helping more than 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. In 2018, an estimated 266,000 women in the U.S., including 5,940 in Maryland, are expected to be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. There will be approximately 40,920 women who die of breast cancer in the U.S. this year, and approximately 810 women in Maryland. However, breast cancer death rates have dropped by close to 40% since 1989, thanks in part to work of the American Cancer Society.
The Society currently has $62 million invested in breast cancer research and has invested more in breast cancer research than in any other cancer. ACS has played an important part in nearly every major breast cancer breakthrough in recent history, including lifesaving treatments such as Tamoxifen and Herceptin, discovery of the BRCA genes and establishing mammography as the standard for finding breast cancer early.

Making Strides Facts:
• Making Strides raises more than $60 million for the American Cancer Society each year, with more than $870 million raised for the fight against breast cancer since 1993.
• ACS has played a role in nearly every major breast cancer breakthrough in recent history.
• ACS is available 24 hours a day, providing valuable information, answers and emotional support for those touched by breast cancer at 1-800-227-2345.
• Through their advocacy affiliate, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the ACS works with lawmakers to increase funding for breast cancer research and ensures access to mammograms for women who need them.
