“Perception is powerful,” said Cary Fountain, Selma Art Guild Artist of the Month for February and Black History Month.  

 “One individual can see red, and another can see burgundy. One individual can feel cold and uncomfortable, and another can feel at complete bliss in the same environment,” Fountain said. “As humans, I think we often rely too much on what we perceive as real without taking into account how many unreal things shape what we consider reality.”   

A reception was held in Fountain’s honor on Feb. 2 at the Selma Art Guild Gallery located at 508 Selma Ave. His work will be on display throughout the month.
