CANTON — The Cherokee Arts Center in Canton will premier works by artist-musicians Bo Bice, Lisa LaRue, Mark Waterbury and Mikel Estes, starting on Sept. 6, with an opening reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The free show, “Crosscut: A Visual Odyssey in Photography/Art,” is sponsored by Serge Entertainment group and the gallery will be open Tuesday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m, through Sept. 27.

All four artists will appear at the opening reception, which is open to the public, and there will be complimentary refreshments and live music.

Bice, a Southern rock artist who appeared on American Idol, will present original acrylic paintings and photography, and perform acoustic music at the opening reception.

The Alabama native was a runner-up to Carrie Underwood in the 2005 American Idol competition, and executive director Mary Akers described Bice’s style as “contemporary and edgy.”

But besides music, the performer has remained relatively low on the radar of the art world.

“This is the first time Bo Bice will be showing his art at an exhibit,” Akers said.

There aren’t any stops in the area scheduled, so the Crosscut exhibit will be a rare opportunity to see a new side of the artist.

Waterbury will present local and regional color, black and white and computer enhanced photography. Paintings, drawings, and sculptures as well as pen and ink illustrations will be featured by local artist Mikel Estes.

LaRue’s “Open Doors” will be comprised of an original selection of photography of the legendary band The Doors, as well as photographs of historically relevant sites. Visitors can view and purchase prints of the selection that are available.

The Cherokee Arts Center, located at 94 North St. in downtown Canton, will house the show. Parking will be available behind Municipal Court House and in the front lot of the arts center.
