The Caldwell Arts Council is pleased to announce their January exhibit, “The View from Home” on display January 7-January 27, with an opening reception set for January 7, 5-7:30pm, hosted by members of Caldwell Voices.

This exhibit will feature Caldwell Voices and Photographer Clayton Joe Young.

Caldwell Voices is a project created by the Leadership Caldwell Classes of 2008 and 2009.  It is a grassroots campaign to inspire personal pride in Caldwell County by drawing attention to our diverse local heritage through the capture and sharing of personal stories of county residents—past and present.  The collection and sharing of these stories is done through different mediums such as audio, video, paintings, sculptures, furniture, etc. This is a multi-media exhibit with photos, paintings, video and more.

Clayton Joe Young’s passion for photography started over twelve years ago. “With my grandparents, I witnessed one of the last generations of farmers who were self-sufficient, living off the land like their forefathers did. I started combing the back roads looking for anyone who carried on traditional ways of life. The people I met shared a wisdom that was not taught in school; their hospitality was always warm, and entertainment came from within.”    Young is an award-winning photographer and is currently the Lead Photographic Technology Instructor at Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory NC.

The Caldwell Arts Council is located at 601 College Avenue SW in Lenoir.  For more information, call 828-754-2486 or visit our website:
