Councilmember Kevin Dayhoff Arts Council report for the June 10, 2019 Westminster mayor and Council meeting:
There are quite a number of other events coming to the Arts Council. For the sake of time, I will just mention two events here. For more information go to: www.CarrollCountyArtsCouncil.org
Art in the Park – June 1, 2019
I was not able to attend the annual Art in the Park festival held on the grounds of Westminster City Hall. In 1993 I exhibited at the first Art in the Park and have exhibited a number of times in the past, but this year I volunteered to help with the horses at the annual Equestrian Special Olympics.
By all reports, this year’s Art in the park went well – and was well-attended. This year, according to a May 29, 2019 article by Cat Righter in the Carroll County Times – Susan Williamson, the visual arts coordinator with the Carroll County Arts Council, said that about 58 artists participated.

“The Art of the Musical Instrument” June 20 through August 9, 2019
Some of the highlights include: “The Art of the Musical Instrument” Exhibit at the Carroll Arts Center
The Carroll Arts Center is proud to be hosting a new exhibit in the Tevis Gallery from June 20 through August 9, 2019. The “The Art of the Musical Instrument” weaves together sound, narrative, history, and actual musical instruments. Guest curator Ryan A. Koons, PhD, focuses on musical instruments as crafted art objects with diverse histories as well as objects that create beautiful sounds.
This exhibit coincides with a performance by Wherligig, the Carroll-based traditional Celtic and Nordic acoustic ensemble, who will perform on Saturday, June 29 at 8 pm using several instruments from the exhibit.
Also on exhibit in the Community Gallery are artworks by members of the Carroll County Camera Club in a show titled “Lens Art” featuring new works in a variety of photographic styles.
The public is invited to a … reception for both exhibits on Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 5 to 7 pm. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar will be part of the festivities. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Respectfully submitted Councilmember Kevin Dayhoff. Any questions, never hesitate to be in touch.
