The Jacqueline Casey Hudgens Center for the Arts received more than $90,000 in donations after sending out an SOS to supporters at the start of October seeking to raise $30,000 in 30 days to address a cash shortfall.
To say thank you and in hopes of attracting new guests, the Duluth arts center, Gwinnett’s biggest, is waving admission charges through the end of the year.
That comes at a good time: The center is hosting the Hudgens Artist Market, with works by more than 30 artists for sale, on Friday (5:30-8:30 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m.-4 p.m.).nov 12-13 A photography exhibit by John Lawrence of LaGrange College also runs through Saturday.
