The Fayetteville Arts Coalition held a holiday celebration Friday night to showcase local artists.
Mosaics, paintings, photography, and other art pieces were on display. World-renowned sculpter Jeff Fetty attended to show his art and speak with locals. Fetty recently created a sculpture that will replace an old sign in Fayetteville.
Shea Wells, President of the Fayetteville Arts Coalition, said she thought folks benefited from interacting with him. "For Fayetteville to have somebody of his stature here, to be able to meet him and hear about him and his history, is really a neat opportunity," she said.
Wells said a goal of the Arts Coalition is to increase outdoor art in the town by having one outdoor sculpture and mural installed each year.
