Excitement Is Building as Members Prepare Their Art and Plans Get Underway for Our Spring Art Show
Message from the President: Tutt Hoy
Creativity is intelligence having fun - Albert EinsteinSpring is making its appearance a little early it seems. And with that in mind, it is time to focus on our Spring Art Show 2019. This signature event will be held at the Community Church in Tellico Village on May 10, 11 and 12. That’s only about 60 days away, so please begin thinking about what art you can contribute to the joy and fun of bringing our best creative efforts together for a show. One of the spectacular things about our show is that it encompasses so many art forms and artists. Last year we had a wonderful mix of watercolor painting, oil painting, colored pencil, pastels, ceramics, fiber art, sculpture, photography, encaustic, acrylic paintings, pen and ink, collage, wood carving, jewelry, stained glass and more. So no matter what medium you use, our show provides a special place to celebrate your original work. Our Spring Art Show is always well attended, and it gives our members an opportunity to introduce their work to a wider audience. We host an exciting Meet the Artists Reception on Friday evening, where refreshments are served and artists can meet members of the community and discuss their work. Your art can be listed for sale, if you wish, but all sales must take place off the church campus. Buyers and artists can make arrangements for purchases and deliveries of art to occur after the show is over. The deadline for submitting your entry form is April 15. This allows time for the program to be printed, title and artist tags to be made for each entry and committees to make their final preparations. Your work must be delivered to the church on Thursday, May 9, so the hanging committee can get everything ready for the opening on Friday. The juror will come on Friday and make his/her selections prior to the opening. The People’s Choice Award will be selected by the votes of attendees and will be announced on Sunday at the end of the show.
