Therese Cook and Jennifer Collins are

Featured Artist at Arts Center


Therese Cook and Jennifer Collins will be CCA Featured Artists for July at the Carroll County Arts Center with their show titled "Birds and Beeswax". The show will open on our Fourth Friday, June 24.


Therese Cook is a Central Catholic graduate and with her degree in chemistry, she worked for Aultman in their lab for 17 years.


"I've always been artistic, crafty", Cook stated, "but never had any formal training".

When she and her family moved to Lake Mohawk 13 years ago, she became involved in the Art League as a way to meet new people. Therese met Gail Wetherall-Sack and took several workshops with her in collage. "When I took an encaustic workshop, I got hooked on it and have been working in that medium ever since. Encaustic is an ancient art, beginning with the Egyptians. Basically it is painting with many layers of beeswax."


Jennifer Collins moved to Lake Mohawk 16 years ago and is a member of the Art League there. She and her family traveled the country with a concession company but were based in this area.


 "I have had no regular art classes and didn't start painting until after 9/11. I felt I had to do something that was beautiful", Collins stated. "As a little kid, I was always fascinated with birds. So I started painting birds and gave them away."


When she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer, she began painting a series of birds denoting the virtues of strength, faith, hope and courage and to honor those who helped her in her journey.  The paintings were made into note cards with a percentage of each sale going to the Cancer Society.


Her new series is titled "Music and Me." Collins' father was a musician and band director in Michigan who also composed music. She has incorporated his manuscript compositions into her work. Her work is mainly watercolors but she is also working in acrylics.


Both artists are members of Carroll County Arts and have work on display at the Center. Cook has exhibited at Minerva Art Spot and also serves as a trustee of Carroll County Arts.


The show will be on display at the Carroll County Arts Center, 204 West Main Street, Carrollton through July 21. Hours of the Center are: Monday, Tuesday, Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Thursday from 1 – 6 p.m. ; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; closed on Wednesday and Sunday.
