Artwork, receptions connected to ’49 Days’ tonight at St. John’s Lutheran, Waterworks

SALISBURY — Connected to the ongoing 49 Days of Gratitude in Rowan County, artwork by local students and seniors will be showcased from 6 to 8 p.m. today at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 200 W. Innes St.
Part of the display will feature portraits of military veterans by North Rowan High School students and will be dedicated to the memory of Clyde Miller, the World War II veteran who died last Saturday morning just as he was preparing to be grand marshal of the opening 49 Days of Gratitude Parade.
Ana Lara painted a portrait of Miller, which will be among those displayed tonight. She also will be among the students attending the reception.
The art teachers leading this project are Leigh Ann Alexander and Lori Gray, and this part of the exhibit is sponsored by the Center for Faith and the Arts.
Trinity Oaks will present a collection of collages on the theme of gratitude, created by residents who participated in a workshop by art students at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. The art students are led by Jonathan Hoffman, chairman of the school’s Department of Fine and Applied Arts.
A trolley will run from 6 to 8 p.m. between St. John’s and Waterworks Visual Art Center, which has the Silly City art window display — Fresh Artists’ student work that served as a catalyst for 49 Days of Gratitude.
In addition, Waterworks is having an artists reception for its Unity Through Art Exhibition tonight.
