Special to The News-Courier—
ABILENE—Munday artist Kacy Latham’s painting “Major Swim” has been accepted as an entry for the fourth annual CCAN National Juried Competition at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene.
This national competition had more than 350 entries submitted and 145 works were selected for exhibition in the center’s Breed Gallery until Dec. 11. Most art is for sale.
Fort Worth-based artist Thomas Motley will serve as juror for this year’s competition and will have an exhibit of his art on display in Gallery 4 in correlation with the CCAN exhibition.
The center hosted three events to highlight the opening of the exhibition, including a private reception on Friday evening, an Art Brunch and artist paint-off Saturday and an awards reception Saturday afternoon that was open to the public.
Safety and health precautions included Germ Killer sanitizing all shared surfaces in the gallery with its 90-day disinfectant spray. Germ Killer also set up its new ionization air purifier units in the gallery. Guests were asked to observe proper physical distancing and masks were strongly encouraged.
