The Annual Camden Art Association (CAA) Members’ Show will be on display from Jan. 6 through Feb. 4 in the Bassett Gallery at the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County (FAC.) The opening reception is Thursday, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and is free to the public.

The exhibit will include works of art in a variety of styles and media including watercolor, oil, acrylic, charcoal, pen and ink, and mixed media. Select works will be available for purchase.

First, second, and third place winners, along with the Audience Favorite will be featured in the CAA’s Honors Show in May of 2011 in the Bassett Gallery.

The Camden Art Association is a group of local artists, both professional and amateur, who meet the first Monday of each month at FAC and present two annual exhibits in the Fine Arts Center’s Bassett Gallery. The CAA welcomes anyone interested in visual arts to join this affiliate club. Membership will provide opportunities for artists to showcase their work, to hear from speakers and demonstrators who can share their expertise, and meet other artists in the community. For more information, contact CAA president Ed Nester at 425-6663.

The FAC is also holding auditions and registration for the Chamber Choir of Kershaw County (CCKC) for the 2011 season. The choral program, in its 20th season, is directed by Dr. Susan Wyatt, and is open to students and adults. Auditions will be held on Saturday, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Music Studio of the FAC. Rehearsals will be on Monday evenings from 6:15 – 7:30 beginning Jan. 10.

The CCKC is a multigenerational group of treble singers: that is, soprano and alto teens and adults, girls, and boys 6th grade and above whose voices are unchanged.

Those auditioning will be asked to sing “America” or another simple song in a comfortable key; it is not necessary to have a prepared song. There is a tuition fee of $32/month. Partial scholarships are available on the basis of need.
