Artist Conni Tögel is bringing her show “Sheep Incognito” to Hinesville to spread laughter and the joys of art to area students and residents.
Her show is composed of brightly painted sheep characters which she uses to create a comical world that also blurs fantasy and reality.  The graphic designer turned painter will be spending an entire day in Liberty County with students, visiting both Bradwell and Joseph Martin.
There also will be a reception for Tögel at the board of education building starting at 5 p.m. March 2.
Tögel is the first artist to participate in the new, joint program between
The Liberty Board of
Education and The Hinesville Area Art Council. The two have prepared a lineup of artists to visit local schools at least once each quarter.
“We’re working to make our students well-rounded,” said art council member Leah Poole. “It’s really going to make a difference for the kids.
Poole said the council and the BoE is excited to introduce Tögel as the first artist in the series. And while the series was created to enrich the lives of students, parents and other residents can enjoy the art as well — especially Tögel’s, which, Poole said, has a great deal of humor.
“It’s really funny. The adults will love it because of the satirical nature and how creative it is,” she said.
Future artists will be chosen with an emphasis on diversity, according to Poole, so the students understand art comes in many forms.
“It won’t necessarily always be visual arts,” she said.
