Opening Reception :: September 14th from 6 – 8 pm. Show runs until October 10th.

Ann Smotherman :: “For my whole life, I have been drawing and painting and have many works from my childhood.  The style has changed to some extent.

The interest in and love of art HAVE actually shaped my life and created marvelous friendships.” Ann has taught Art Appreciation Courses for Motlow College for 20 years and holds a MA in Art History from the University of Georgia, Athens.

Jimmilu Smith :: “These paintings are a result of my early years on the farm.  Some are from my travels and some from my love of flowers and the Shady Grove Garden Club. The portraits are from my interest and love of people.”

Joanna Seiber :: “It all began with a coloring book. Then moving on, while taking a nap, I etched a mural in the headboard of the bed with a straight pin. In my teen years, I designed numerous house floor plans with the desire to become an architect. That dream never materialized, however, I did have a first minor in art in college. Prior to marriage, I was hired as an advertising layout artist for The Tennessean. I began doing oil paintings, became associated with the Fine Arts Center and a group with whom I have painted for over twenty years. My painting has been a fulfilling experience for me as I enjoy being identified through my artistic achievements.

About Tullahoma Art Center

"Preserving the past, engaging the present and nurturing the future of Middle Tennessee by stimulating diverse creative expression, positive encouragement and quality, regional opportunities for access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities." The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is an ADA-compliant facility committed to the development of quality cultural experiences and education by providing access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities, and influencing the direction of area visual, literary, performing and creative arts. TFAC, above all, encourages professionalism in the artistic community and among its artists and students, thereby raising standards of excellence in creativity, design and the production and practice of cultural craftsmanship. We promote the development of arts programming opportunities by offering classes, demonstrations, performances, publications and exhibitions. We are currently expanding our Member Gallery so that members may display and/or sell their original works -- creating unique marketing opportunities for them to reach local, regional and national audiences. We strive to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the Arts and Humanities, especially in underserved and disenfranchised communities. TFAC seeks to strengthen our existing Regional Art Museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both. We are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their Arts and Humanities curriculums, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged. Finally, we are firmly committed to partnering with civic organizations, other non-profits, city, county and state governments to compliment each another’s fields of expertise.
