Kay Carrel - A Taste of Color

Join us October 5 from 5 to 6:30 PM for the opening reception of this exciting exhibit of Kay Carrel's work. Kay is a founding member of the Creative Arts Center and we are proud to host this lovely exhibition. Kay lives on a ranch and is inspired by nature. Her pallet is rich and vibrant and her subjects are varied - from serene landscapes to whimsical representational abstracts. 

The exhibit runs through October 27.
