• The participatory arts festival again succeeds in raising money for the Children’s Enrichment Fund.

The Cedartown Performing Arts Center hosted a true upscale shindig over the weekend for their second annual “A Night with Local Artist,” where even the participants got to create and take something home with them. The annual art gala featured work from local and area artist which was also on sale along with a silent auction that benefitted the Cedartown Civic Arts Commission Children’s Enrichment Fund.

As local art lovers mingled through the night, Greg Robbins provided some light entertainment of jazz standards, while others took part in creating their own artwork in an area provided by Craftsy House in Cedartown.

Those interested in making a permanent donation for display can contact CPAC Executive Director Oscar Guzman at oguzman@cedartownshows.com to learn more.

The CPAC will play host in coming weeks to two events now that the gala had another successful year. Tickets are on sale now for $5 for School House Rock Live! Jr. coming up on Saturday, April 7 at 7 p.m. Additionally, James Gregory will be back in Cedartown again on Saturday, April 28 to bring his comedy to the stage. Tickets start at $15 and up.
