For other parts of the nation, summer may not start until June 21, but for us here in Middle Georgia, summer is already in full swing. We are already looking forward to Bragg Jam and Weavers Weekend even though they are still a month or more away.

From Canvas To Country is a traveling art show featuring the works of Sid Enck Jr., Patrick Jilbert, Matthew Klemanski and Nikkea Takagi. This show came about as Enck and Jilbert, two skateboarding friends from Santa Cruz, California, decided to get back together to show off their work after Jilbert moved back to his home of Louisville, Kentucky. Their mixed-medium art has garnered a lot of attention as it has been crossing the country. Their stop in Macon brings them to the Contemporary Arts Exchange on June 20.
