(See the AGTV Newsletter for details)

More than 1,000 people attended our Spring Art Show 2019, held at the Tellico Village Community Church May 10-12. Under the capable direction of co-chairs Ginger Cooper and Diane Clementi, many hard-working teams of members rallied to put on our biggest and most diverse show ever. Guests were treated to 307 works of art by 63 artists that spanned an impressive range of different media that included beautiful paintings, photographs, prints, pastels, drawings, sculptures, wood carvings and turnings, jewelry and 3-D art. Many guests commented about the quality of the art and the professional look of the show. Juror Mike Berry’s comments included: “I was humbled by the talent represented…. The exhibit showcases all forms of art and the watercolors are exceptional…. I think this is a wonderful representation of skill in all types of art, and it was a total joy to be able to really look and study each piece. Thank you for allowing me to soak up your talent.”

AGTV 20th Annual Spring Art Show -- 2018

Under the leadership of co-chairs Tina Shrewsbury and Laurie Chisholm, more than 100 member artists and

volunteers organized and presented for the 20th year, yet another, superior Spring Art Show.  Members and guests were treated to 204 works of art by 49 artists. The art spanned an impressive range of media to include beautiful paintings, photographs, prints, pastels, drawings, sculptures, wood carvings, and 3-dimensional art.

Dr. Carl Gombert, Professor of Art, Maryville College, served as the juror for the show.  Dr. Gombert’s comments on the AGTV Spring Art Show:  “Once again, I am impressed by the ambition, skills, and enthusiasm on display in this show, and I am grateful for the opportunity to see and enjoy so much fine work.  As always, it is very difficult to single out a small handful of works for awards.  I am glad to see strong commitment to both traditional media and subject matter and a strong sense of innovation and experimentation.  Numerous pieces could (and probably should) have been commented, but I was asked to identify only three “juror’s choice” winners and two honorable mentions.  So, I offer congratulations to the following artists: (from left to right)
