Fifth grade students at Beaufort Elementary School will build a permanent moving sculpture to be installed in the Carteret County Public Library in Beaufort at the end of the week. The public is invited to come and view the art at a reception on Sunday, November 21st from 3-4:30 PM.
     Carteret Arts Forum and The Arts Council of Carteret County partner to present "A Perfect Balance". Kevin Reese offers an extraordinary performance for all ages inspired by the work of American artist Alexander Calder (the inventor of the mobile). This one-man play follows a young artist, Sandy, on his quest to capture his exuberant vision of life. "This is an exquisite piece of theatre, for both adults and young people. We need this quality of work in our theatres' seasons. It is extraordinary." Roberta Gasbarre, Director of Discovery Theatre, Smithsonian Institution. This drama has been featured at the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC, and presented over 1200 times throughout the US and abroad.
