Annual membership drive begins

Annual Membership for 2016-2017 begins May 31, 2016

The 2016-2017 annual membership drive for the Tullahoma Fine Arts center has begun! Membership runs from May 31, 2016 to May 31, 2017. TFAC is a membership driven organization and whether you are an artist or someone who appreciates the arts in the community, your contribution through membership makes a difference. TFAC is excited about the upcoming gallery shows, classes and programs. The emphasis in the upcoming months will be for the art center to be an inclusive regional art center for all. TFAC is expanding its youth classes and a portion of membership dues will go for scholarships for underserved youth in the community. TFAC depends on membership in order to continue its programs and there are a number of membership levels beginning as low as $30. A few highlights of upcoming events include gallery shows by local artist Jack Moore, the Tennessee Valley Woodworking Society and the Threads of Time Quilt exhibit. In March 2017, TFAC will host the American Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibit. Renewal packets will be sent to current members and we encourage new members to be pART of the education, fun and arts in the community. Please call TFAC at 931-455-1234 or visit us on Facebook to learn more!

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.
