Tutt Hoy to Serve as Art Guild President as We Begin an Exciting and Dynamic New Year
Message from the President
Welcome to the 2018-2019 season for the Art Guild of Tellico Village. We are a group of both practicing artists and people who enjoy and appreciate the art of others. As we start getting together and meeting again in September, I hope that each of you will find rewarding experiences — friends with like interests as well as challenging and creative opportunities to practice your art and learn new skills. Maybe this is the year you will try that new technique or work in a different medium. In looking at our Spring Art Show roster this past May, 22 different media were represented. There were artists working in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, alcohol ink, clay, photography, mixed media, encaustic, turned wood, pen and ink, wood carving, fiber art, collage, cut paper on board, metal print, china painting, colored pencil, graphite pencil, jewelry, sculpture and glass. How many of these media interest you? Or perhaps you will bring yet another medium to our guild this year. We are a welcoming and encouraging group, and we want to help all of our members find their pleasure and their own artistic path. I joined the AGTV in 2007, right after moving here. Through the guild I have made many good friends and enjoyed varied workshops and classes. Because of these opportunities, I have found my favorite medium, as well as new ways of expressing myself. We have very talented artists in our guild who not only produce fine work but enjoy teaching and sharing their knowledge and skills with other members. Workshops and classes they offer throughout the year cover a variety of topics and methods. Our monthly meetings on the third Thursday of each month offer interesting programs and speakers on many subjects and media. At our meeting on September 20, award-winning painter Terry Chandler will be our presenter. Terry works primarily in acrylics and his beautiful paintings celebrate the Tennessee landscape. On October 18, Jeanne Dole will speak about painting aboard a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea. Come at 9:30 to enjoy greeting old friends and meeting new members before the business meeting and program begin at 10.
