Artwork by local celebrities, as well as professional artists, is set for a public showing Saturday at a Martinez church.
The Artists’s Guild of Columbia County is holding the sixth annual Art After Dark at the Church of the Holy Comforter at 473 Fury’s Ferry Road.
Members of the guild and hometown figures such as local artist Leonard “Pork Chop” Zimmerman, radio personality Austin Rhodes, University Health Care Foundation President Laurie Ott and Columbia County News-Times Publisher Barry Paschal, are submitting works for display.
“This’ll be the first juried show,” said guild president Yadira Payne. “We’re having professional artists from the community review all the art that’s going to be on display and submitted,”
The art show, at which paintings, ceramic items, pottery and jewelry will be showcased, will be from 7-10 p.m.
“All pieces will be available for purchase,” Payne said.
Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
Music by jazz vocalist Bill Karp and a silent art auction also are part of the evening, Payne said.
All proceeds benefit the guild’s scholarship fund, which assists students majoring in art.
Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased at the door, by visiting www.artistguildcc.org, or at The News-Times office in the Publix Shopping Center on Washington Road in Evans.
