Tennessee River Fine Arts League

Stay tuned till the end - for furry cuteness.

I went to the gallery hanging at the fine arts group today.
It was very different than hangings at the Reinecke in Fargo!
They have picture wires on the walls that make it a lot easier than centering and measuring for nails in the wall.

There isn't much about this local group on the Internet yet - so consider this a public service announcement :o)

There are about 30 people in the group, consisting of local artists and artisans. They show their work at the Robert Lee School in Paris, TN and at many other functions they help organize. They also give art lessons there.

June's showing is at 5-8 pm on Friday June 23rd.
Arts round the Square is Saturday afternoon at the Paris Courthouse.
The art gallery will also show on Sunday from 12-5 pm.

This is the Robert Lee School (historic building) in Paris, TN which is a few blocks from the public library. There is a general meeting every month.

The next meeting is July 10th, at 6 pm! Guests are welcome to attend.

I took a few pics of the hall which is used as a gallery.

There will be many paintings, stained glass and collages shown at this event. No drawings though! I'll have to remedy that next month ;o)

This Public Service Announcement brought to you by
Willowpede's Tongue

Ah, did you have to show my tongue?
Isn't fuzzy cuteness enough?

I love the tongue shots. Some people like the paws, but I like the tongue. It's just so cute.

I was just thinking about you & the TRFAL last night! Glad you went & good thing too. Clearly they need your drawings.

Chris said...

Cool that you found an active arts group to participate in!! :)

Whoa, that's a fabulous tongue picture!! That's the kinda picture you take and think "Oh yeah, that is SO bloggable."

I love that cat! Is it a diluted tortie? The colors are so similar to my Gracie girl!
I have only been to Tennessee once and I loved it. I remember it being so green.
I'm assuming you're an artist of sorts? (Sorry, haven't been able to read your archives yet!

What a cool building! I love those historic southern buildings.

And oh, that Willowpede! I need a cat bath about now! lol

I love historic places gallaries.
I will have to get my ole trucker map out to see if I have been to Paris.
I used to cross the River by the ole Ketchup bottle and travel along the river in Arkansas to head to work in Memphis, TN.

On a tangent.......

Thanks for participating in the International InWeDay Celebrations.

I wish to invite you to participate in the online forum..
There was a concensus that the participants would like a blogger forum all year.

I will do my best to keep the forum running and open for everyone.
It is a closed (private) site. Please tell your friends.
I wish to remind newcomers to register and login to the site so they can post.

Unfortunately the content of our June 14th forum went "poof!" into the nether-regions of the Internet. I probably did something wrong while I was trying to learn how to be an administrator. (heehee)

I have posted new topics.
Feel free to add your own.
If the forum gremlin wont let you post what you want, please tell me in the LAST WORD topic choice on the forum.
LAST WORD is also a good place to give me grief over something, and to tell me something has disappeared or is not co-operating with you on the site.

The only way anyone will know this site exists is word of mouth/ word of blog. Invite as many folks as you can to register on the International Webloggers' Day Site in 2007:

Plus invite them here to the forum all year.

Thanks Again,
We hope you come back often to:

(I always want give thanks to Rio as well for maintaining the official InWeDay Site.)

Chris: that is exactly what I thought when I got the picture - I was hitting the playback and going 'Heehee! I got it!' ;o)

Kimbre: Yes I went to college for an art degree and do ink drawings, but not as often as I used to. The biggest problem with putting them in galleries, even like this, is they needed to be matted and framed. And - that costs money AND takes time. I draw more for the experience of drawing than for the showing - but what good is art no one sees? *sigh* I need to get something into that show next month!
