President's Message

Out of consideration for the health of our community and based upon the latest CDC guidelines, our Spring Art Show is cancelled.

  The reason I “volunteered” to serve as President of AGTV is that someone was needed to hold the post. Recently I came upon a quote that is a good one to share. “The health of a society depends on voluntary unselfishness.” We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of Board Members and Chairpersons, without whom we could not function as an organization. They are most generous in sharing their time and skills to serve all of the membership. An active Art Guild was an important reason we moved to Tellico Village, and others have expressed the same opinion.

  Our monthly meetings provide exceptional artists who share their ideas and techniques. Well-known local artists, as well as artists of international fame, have come to awe us and we have more to come in the next few months. AGTV provides assorted classes and workshops at Chota Rec. Center just minutes from your door…including workshops given by famous artists. From personal experience, I can tell you the fees for the workshops are very reasonable. I cannot imagine our community without such wonderful opportunities.

  Very soon we will be seeking new volunteers to take on various board positions and chairmanships for the 2020-21 year. We would love to have some new faces and new ideas help us to grow.

  Another quote by David Brooks is: “A good life is a symbiotic life…serving others wholeheartedly and being served in return.” See you at the next meeting…always the third Thursday of the month on the 5th floor of the Yacht Club.

Our March 19 meeting has been cancelled.

Thursday, April 16, 2020

Speaker: Aurora Bull

Title: Visions of Nature in Oils

Program: Aurora’s expert ability to harmonize design and color allows her to depict a wide variety of subjects in a way that is both realistic and romantic.

Working exclusively in oil, she uses a very limited palette consisting of only three primaries. She combines opaque tones of soft colors, with layers of transparent glaze, achieving an authentic three-dimensional quality, tempered with subtle overtones.
