The arts make life better. They are the source of some enjoyable events that give substance and fascination to our days, despite the challenges and limitations of the pandemic. Theater productions come our way again in the near future at Gadsden State Community College, while an oil painting exhibit at the Public Library of Anniston-Calhoun County is on display through April. The Etowah Youth Orchestras’ Spring Formal Concert is Sunday at the Mort Glosser Amphitheatre. Who can possibly say there’s nothing to do for entertainment in this area?
