As our summer is winding down, I would like to share with you some great events to look forward to as we head into FALL!
The American Watercolor Society’s Traveling Exhibit is off to a wonderful start! We have had lots of visitors during our opening weekend receptions and throughout last week. If you have not had a chance to come by and see this gorgeous exhibit, please put it on your calendar (see previous post for all AWS hours). We will have special evening hours this Thursday, September 3rd from 6-8 pm for those who cannot make it during our Regular Business hours: 9 am -3 pm, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
We will also have our Annual Members Meeting on Thursday, September 10th from 5-8 pm. This will be a “Potluck” reception, so please bring your favorite covered dish and join us at 5 pm for refreshments and visiting. Our business meeting will begin at 6 pm, where everyone will be brought up to speed on what has been happening throughout the year and on what great plans we have in store for 2016! All Members will be able to view the AWS exhibit that evening FREE of charge. So if you have not renewed or would like to join, this will be the perfect opportunity! We have also extended our watercolor classes with Kay Foote, Pat Rollie and Ann Smotherman. Click here for more details Watercolor Classes.
In October, will be presenting a very special art exhibition!
A collection of quilts representing our rich quilting heritage combined with today’s talented quilters will be on display at the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center October 17th through November 13th. Within a limited amount of space, we hope to showcase quilts that have been handed down from earlier generations and today’s quilts which may still use those traditional patterns or which may break new ground. We are targeting a selection of 10 quilts from each of the two categories-Past and Present. Past is loosely defined as at least one generation past and Present is within the past 10 years. It is important that the quilts of the past be in good condition, without tears and major repairs needed. We understand that with age there will be normal wear and perhaps a minor stain here and there, but the overall appearance must be presentable.
If you have quilts that you would like to be considered for this exhibition, please reply to Pat Rollie, ASAP. Pat can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Pat at 323-333-6488.
Please be aware due to the extreme wall limitations, worthy quilts may not be selected for this show. Our goal is to have the greatest variety of styles and techniques as possible.
Join us from 12:30 to 2:30 for a Fun afternoon with Friends! Bring your Favorite beverage and we will provide the rest! Only $10 for Members and $15 for Non-Members. If you haven’t tried this yet, you should! It’s SO much fun to be a kid again!
Stay tuned for other upcoming events and activities…we are working on some really exciting things for the near future!! And we want you all to be pART of the FUN!
