Art and Civil War enthusiasts will both be drawn to the Carroll County Arts Center over the next two months.
The Carroll County Arts Council recently unveiled its “Images of the Civil War” exhibit in time for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Westminster, a skirmish commonly known as Corbit's Charge, that took place June 29, 1863, a few days before the Battle of Gettysburg.
The arts council hosted the exhibit's opening celebration June 13 with about 160 people attending.
Susan Williamson, visual arts coordinator of the arts council, said the majority of the pieces displayed come from arts council members who created their pieces within the last nine months.
Other works come from artists in Frederick, Gaithersburg, Cambridge, and as far as New York.
"Everything is new, which is the beauty of this show," Williamson said.
Works include oil paintings, water color, pastels, 3D printing, photography, and jewelry among other styles…. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-civil-war-exhibit-20130613,0,6396085.story
