Visual Art

The Center for Rural Development is proud to showcase the talents of professional and aspiring artists in our visual arts gallery.

We also host artist receptions where the community can meet the artist whose work is on display at The Center.

The Center has hosted the work of both amateur and professional artists in the visual arts gallery and is constantly looking for ways to engage young students in the visual arts.

New art exhibit by photographer Carrie Mofield

My love for horses came from my father. He was a horse farrier and trainer. His work with these animals was an art in itself. I grew up watching, and I fell in love with the simple task of living a rural life.

Photographer Carrie Mofield shares nature’s beauty and country life in rural Pulaski County in The Center for Rural Development’s newest art exhibit.

Mofield, who grew up on a farm in the Kingbee community, captures the breathtaking beauty of the area in a series of photographs now on display at The Center in Somerset.

“We are excited to welcome Carrie and showcase her stunning photographs in our newest art exhibit,” said Laura Glover, Director of Marketing and Events at The Center. “She is extremely talented and her photographs are simply beautiful.”

Mofield started out taking family photographs with her Kodak Easyshare, but quickly discovered she had a passion for nature photography.

“I knew I wanted to showcase the beauty of my area—the farmland, the animals, and the people—the natural scenery that seemed to be overlooked,” she said. “Kingbee, with its many farms and wildlife, is a photographer’s dream. I’m blessed to have so many neighbors that let me walk through their land or put up with me constantly stopping in the road to snap pictures.”

The photography exhibit will be on display through September. There is no charge to view the exhibit. Viewing hours are from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and during extended evening and weekend hours when The Center is open to the general public.
