Cara Studios
Sculpture Garden

Canons were proudly placed on the lawn and cadets from the old Gordon Academy once lined up for their formal portraits in front of the Carnegie Library.  The years  passed, the library was sold and the concrete canon bases stood empty.  Then came artist and poet, Cara who had a vision for the library from the moment she laid eyes on the property.

Cara restored the 1910 library as her studio and home and then proceeded to create a sculpture garden on the barren property.  She hauled in five more concrete bases  for sculptures  which are now hidden amongst the lush foliage. Over the years  Cara added trees, flowerbeds, garden rooms, a pond, rock garden, patio, fire pit, a gazebo and  an herb garden. Cara now has a beautiful garden retreat in the heart of downtown Barnesville.  She constantly enhances the garden and subtly incorporates designs and symbols from her studies of world cultures and archaeology.

Care gives unique cultural art performances and art exhibits in the garden and in her studio. Groups often combine these events  with tours of the garden and historical tours of the beautiful old library. See Tours or Recent Work and Performances on the index page.
