Our community has lost a talented musician recently with the passing of Elder Carlos Toombs. He was respected among local musicians for his ability to play guitar whether it was R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, or whatever. He walked away from a very promising career years ago and left Georgia, only to return later to spread the Word of God. We were privileged at Allied arts to have been able to reintroduce him to our community through his performances with Marilyn Jarrett for our First Friday concerts. During this time of social distancing, we still wish to honor Elder Toombs by sharing our memories of him in his own element...on stage. We send our prayers and sincere condolences to his family and his church family during this time of bereavement.
Funeral arrangements are being made with Slater's Funeral Home.

About the Competition
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
