The Rockmart Cultural Arts Center has plenty of opportunities to get involved as summer turns to fall. Classes, events, and theatrical productions are all on tap for the rest of 2021, and there’s something for every age group to participate in at reasonable rates.

Additionally, the RCAC is wrapping up their wood-themed show featured this summer (check back for coverage of that on Sunday) and will be focusing on the upcoming solo exhibit for Ginger Lowery, and the return of the O Holy Night show featuring the work of Susan Waters and back by popular demand.
