Local Artist Exhibit at Smyrna City Hall

The Smyrna Arts Council and the City of Smyrna are excited to announce our latest fine arts exhibit on at A. Max Bacon City Hall in Smyrna through January 2023. The exhibit features 8 talented local artists, the majority of which are Smyrna-based:

  • Aida Arias – a Puerto Rican-born contemporary painter and mixed media artist;
  • Bihter Alapan – an embroidery artist;
  • Justin Groom & Becca McCoy, as Leafmore Studios – exhibiting a collaboration of hand- illustrated photography;
  • Paula Winter – a former Cobb County teacher creating unique collage art;
  • Carol Vasbinder – a watercolorist;
  • Jason Walesh – a pop-culture designer and recycled materials collagist; and
  • Bill Hunton – a Smyrna-based fine art and commercial photographer, and musician.

Curated by Smyrna Arts Council Vice President Leah Barnes, the Community Art Exhibit in partnership with the City of Smyrna provides an opportunity for local artists to display their work and for residents to gain exposure to Art being created within the community.

The exhibit is open for viewing during City Hall’s normal business hours. Follow Smyrna Arts Council on Facebook and Instagram @smyrnaartscouncil for profiles on the featured artists, glimpses into the exhibit, and to learn about the other events and happenings sponsored by the Council.
