DERP celebrated a great Bless Your Art exhibition on May 13th.  Enfield  had artists from all over NC in our wonderful downtown.  DERP hosted artist, Eric McRay, along with his family for an overnight at Bellamy Manor & Gardens while he was teaching an art class. 

DERP created an anti-litter campaign for students from kindergarten through High School!  Yoga Magnolia awarded the first place winning students art supplies and a $25 award.  DERP supplied all the canvases, easels and paint supplies for student art workshop.

Bless Your Art had jewelry makers, wood designers, paintings, hand made Southern bowties made by Susan Whitaker and more!

​Look for us next year in April. 

Thank you Jennifer Locke McCann for chairing this wonderful event in 2016 & 2017!  Everyone can attest that it was superb.  We also got a sneak preview of Southern Secrets at Mears that Jennifer will be opening in September and we are so excited to watch it blossom.

Julia Hamill Andrus will be chairing Bless Your Art for 2018 and we thank her for taking on this wonderful event.  Julia is already planning the event for April.  All artists should contact Julia at 252-908-1227 or email her at for an application. 

This is a vetted art exhibition so we need you to send a bio and photo of your work or upload a jpg.
