Spring at the Fountain City Art Center kicked off with a reception on March 30, marking the beginning of the Annual Fountain City Art Guild Spring Show and Sale.
The annual show will be on exhibit at the center through April 27. Admission is free and open to the public. Also on exhibit through April 27 is artwork by students from the Halls area.
This year's 9th Annual Garden Party Luncheon and Auction will be held on Saturday, May 12, beginning at 11 AM. Reservations for the luncheon and auction can be made by calling 865-357-2787 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also make reservations at the center. The luncheon is $35 per person. The proceeds go a long way toward funding operations at the Art Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The site of the luncheon is the incredibly beautiful gardens of Ginger and Bill Baxter as featured in the March edition of Southern Living. Musical entertainment this year will be provided by the Ben Maney Trio; gourmet sandwiches will be provided by the Creamery Park Grill courtesy of Jeff Patin.
The Art Center has many new classes and workshops this spring and summer. They are offering art related Field Trips, a new program this year. The Fountain City Art Center is located in the old library building next to Fountain City Park at 213 Hotel Avenue.
