Boylan Foundation, the Carthage Area United Way, the Carthage Community Foundation, the Carthage Council on the Arts, Leggett & Platt, Inc., the Rotary Club of Carthage and S&S Computers

During artCamp, July 11-22, artCentral’s beautiful, historic Hyde House galleries and the Pottery House will be transmogrified into teaching classrooms.

While you are here be sure to take in the 2022 Annual Membership Exhibition which will be on display through July 22.
