The Charlevoix Circle of Arts in Charlevoix.

CHARLEVOIX — The Charlevoix Circle of Arts has recently announced its 2022 exhibit schedule with its first opening near the end of the month to kick off the organization’s year.

The upcoming schedule features seven different exhibits through the year bringing back some annual favorites — the organization’s Spotlight on Innovation and its Summer Salon amongst others — as well as a mix of new exhibits it is excited to share and host.

“For this whole year we also kind of have this central theme with fine craft and functional art,” said Circle of Arts exhibit coordinator Laura Kelly.

REDWATER, Texas — Year in and year out, Redwater Independent School District’s Art programs put forth efforts that land them individual and school recognitions at the regional and state level.
