The Cleveland County Arts Council will host what will undoubtedly be one its most thought-provoking exhibits, the creations of two Spartanburg artists, who based their 3-D and 2-D artwork on the Seven Deadly Sins and the corresponding Seven Virtues. West Main Artists Co-op members Annette Giaco and Beth Regula will present their exhibit “Sins & Virtues,” a collection of eight sculptures and eight large canvases, Sept. 5-Oct. 5, 2019. Giaco will depict the seven sins on large canvases and eighth piece on board. In response, Regula will depict the corresponding virtues in mixed-media sculptures.
