Carolyn Govan, Storytelling Artist
February 4th – March 31st -
Sponsored by: Private Sponsor
Featuring Carolyn Govan | Opening Reception February 4th from 5:30-7pm
Govan said she became interested in art because her father would illustrate pictures from books her mother would read to her and her nine siblings. She said inspiration for her paintings comes from events in her life and the people she meets. Govan works in many mediums, including acrylics and pastels. She also creates ceramics and sculptures.
Govan said she began with landscapes but was encouraged by her husband, Charles, to do more paintings that dealt with a person’s soul.
“The arts lends itself to children, even of a low economic background, to expand themselves,” Govan said. “It closes the gap between all races and economical backgrounds because the love and interest in the arts builds self-esteem and similar interests." This exhibit will remain on display until March 31.
Thomas Hart Academy Student Exhibit will be in the foyer the month of February.
Thornwell School for the Arts will be in the Foyer the month of March.

All exhibits may be viewed at BCAC's gallery on College Avenue and The Mantissa Suites on Carolina Avenue.
