From the press release:
Art Exhibition, Free and Open to the Public
From Tuesday, May 18, 2010 through Saturday, May 22, 2010, the public is invited to attend, without charge, the fourth annual “Art and the Library Exhibition,” featuring the work of local artists, at the Dunlap City Hall Training Center. The weekday hours will be 10am-6pm, Saturday, 10am-2pm.
Thirty-one local artists will exhibit. From Tuesday through Saturday a different “resident artist” will be present each day to demonstrate his or her talent and discuss his or her work with visitors. The resident artists are scheduled as follows: Tuesday, Coco Dauer (watercolor); Wednesday, Connie Hornsby (textile); Thursday, Rick Jacob (multi-media); Friday, Charlie Yowell (stained glass); and Saturday, Clifford Land (multi-media). The exhibition will be very diverse and interesting. The exhibits will include oil paintings, watercolors, stained glass, wood work, sculpture, and mixed media.
This event is made possible through a “The Arts Changing Lives” grant from the Tennessee Art Commission and matching funds from the City of Dunlap.
The Sequatchie County Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding services and supplies for the Sequatchie County Library and to encouraging children and adults to read and support their local library.
We traveled to the Monday night opening reception, and we interviewed many of the artists and took some photographs.
