Everett Mayo Donates Paintings to FCAC

Artist, Everett Mayo has offered two paintings to Franklin County Arts Council for a fund raising project. The 21”x29” watercolor paintings titled “Carving a Duck” and “Carving a Horse” are matted and framed. The paintings are valued at $1,200 each. The watercolors are currently on display at the FCAC Gallery in downtown Franklinton.

With a nearly 40-year history as an artist, educator and critic, Mayo’s work hangs in galleries in throughout North Carolina and in New York City. Currently, he is a professor of art at NC Wesleyan College, director of the Mims Gallery, and an active member of The Franklin County Arts Council.

When asked about what inspired the paintings Mayo said, “These paintings were painted in a garage and are about growing up in and out of garages with guys I grew up with, some older guys, some younger, and all fascinating to a 13-14 year old....where I learned about life and all that....garage life has continued to be interesting for me as an observer...honest to God mechanics are rare and very smart people to be around, watch and talk with...painting these was therapy for a period in my life working three jobs at 96 hours a week.”

Franklin County Arts Council is holding a raffle for the works of art. Tickets are $5 each. They can be purchased at the FCAC Gallery during regular hours Thursday – Saturdays, 10:30am until 5pm, or during any FCAC functions. A drawing will be held when the goal of at least $2400 is reached. Once their goal is reached FCAC will host a reception where the winning tickets will be drawn. You can buy your ticket online at this link Mayo Art Fund Raiser. Your ticket stub will be mailed to you.
