Abstract art show open through May
May Art Exhibit

The Hinesville Area Arts Council will host an exhibit featuring abstract artwork by Shirley “Yvette” Coppet, “Art for the Soul” for May.

Coppet is a retired sergeant first class from Fort Stewart. In addition to being a wife and mother of three, she is currently a real estate professional. She said becoming a Realtor gave her the freedom to explore the possibility of fulfilling a longtime dream of becoming an abstract artist.

She is a self-taught, aspiring abstract artist.

“I see and hear abstract all around me. I love working with acrylic paints and different gel mediums, everyday household items that help create textures,” Coppet said. “What some see as chaos, I see as beauty. Abstract is forgiving, beautiful, timeless and, most of all, powerful.”

The exhibit will open with a free community reception at the Gallery, 102 Commerce St. in downtown Hinesville from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday. The Gallery is open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The Hinesville Area Arts Council is a nonprofit corporation primarily funded through the Margaret Martin Trust Fund. It seeks the support of the business community and individuals in bringing its vision to fruition.
