JoAnne McDonough, lead artist for the Kingsport Carousel bird paintings project, looks over photographs of birds to be used as guides for the carousel paintings.

The 24 bird paintings will be done on 15-inch diameter disks of plywood covered with artist canvas. Finished paintings will be mounted on the carousel’s upper inside panels.

The Kingsport Carousel Project of Engage Kingsport and the City of Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts announced a call to artists for work on the 24 bird paintings for the carousel.

Artists interested in painting one of the birds are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on Monday 11:30 a.m. in Room 239 of the Renaissance Arts Center.
