SCENTS, SATELLITES AND ART STARS
Coming through the morning’s open windows the delicate flowery scents of the privet hedge are sweet. I pause. I breathe. Deeply.

Now through summer, just visit any of artCentral’s three satellite galleries and you’ll find visual pleasures in abundance, created by two artCentral creative stars.
At the Carthage Library you’ll see “Perceptions” by Paul Cameron. Paul devotes his time to drawing and painting while being an active member in artCentral and taking part in regional exhibitions and competitions.
A graduate of Carthage High School, Paul holds a BS in Art Education and a Masters in Guidance and Counseling. He taught art in public schools, before being called to serve in Vietnam. Paul recently retired after twenty-seven years in public school counseling.
Over the years Paul has rendered illustrations and written articles for state and national historical publications. Today he participates in many Civil War
While Paul Cameron’s art is at the Library, Kimberley Guthrie’s “Whimsically Themed” is exhibited in both The Atrium Gallery of Sirloin Stockade and on the gallery walls at Mother Road Coffee.
Kim likes to say, “In art I strive for less hoity toity and for more fun! I think life should be this way as well.” When you spend time with her art, you’ll agree. Recently transplanted to southeast Kansas, an artist member-volunteer at artCentral, Kim hopes the characters she creates will give you a laugh or at least a smile.
Classically trained, Kimberley attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, Texas, the University of Colorado in Boulder and the Institute of Art, Lacoste, France. She currently focuses her creativity on whimsical oil paintings and new techniques for portraiture, while exploring her particular love for creating three dimensional works using papier mache.
More star-studded art in abundance is soon be seen at artCentral’s Membership Exhibition—unveiled to the satisfying scents of artCentral’s Annual Picnic on Friday, June 10th. The public is invited to share these visual and culinary pleasures.
Heads up artCentral art stars: Your deadline for entry is May 22nd via artCentral’s website!
