Youman’s art show draws community


A reception for the artwork of Swainsboro native Kim Youmans was held Thursday, July 21 at The Kalmanson Gallery of Emanuel Arts Council. Refreshments were provided by Beta Sigma Phi of Swainsboro.

“We were very pleased to see the community show up in such large numbers,” said Jacquie Brasher, executive director of Emanuel Arts Council. “A total of 76 people attended the event. Guests came from near and far to see Kim’s work.”

The detailed oil paintings of Youmans have appealed to many people, said Brasher. “The accuracy in his paintings is quite astounding,” she said. “I have marveled at how he can paint water so well, capturing the brilliance of each drop, swirl, or wave.”

The exhibition will be on display through August 22nd and is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Viewings on Saturday are available by appointment. The EAC is located at 109 North Green Street, next to Bangles II and Stewart's Jewelers.
