Successful opening night for Art Guild show

CROSSVILLE — A large crowd of at least 150 people attended the opening reception at the Plateau Creative Arts Center in Fairfield Glade June 8 to view the Judged and Juried Art Show. A total of 118 entries were reduced to 87 in all categories by judge Sharon Stolzenberger of the Ohio Watercolor Society.

“It was an honor to be invited to judge the Art Guild at Fairfield Glade exhibition," said Stolzenberger. "It was a daunting responsibility because the quality of the works was so high. I was impressed by the high caliber in the pieces entered. They are of a level usually found in larger organizations which draw from a much wider pool of artists. You are all to be congratulated on your professionalism.”

The show is open from June 8 to July 5 during regular gallery hours. Special attention should be paid to the award winners. The top four awards were awarded by Greg Pugh of First National Bank of Tennessee:

•Best of Show — Le Nyquist: "Untitled," charcoal and graphite.

•First Prize — Tom Stade: "Market Day," acrylic.

•Second Prize — Steve Sullentrup: "Low Pass," wood.

•Third Prize — Judi Moenck: "Stones on a Rope," jewelry.

Additional award winners include Sam Hill's "After the Rain," watercolor (Cumberland Toyota Award of Excellence); Tom Whitehurst's "The Big Falls," photograph (Art and Frame Shop Award of Excellence); Barb Rogers' "Sunbathers," colored pencil (Happy Hound Realty Award of Excellence); John Anderson's "Astral Projections," acrylic (Jerrys Artarama Award of Excellence); and Dena Whitener's "Empty Pockets," colored pencil (Jerrys Artarama Award of Excellence).

This is the third annual Judged and Juried Art Show supported by contributions from First National Bank of Tennessee, The Art and Frame Shop, Cumberland Toyota of Cookeville, Happy Hound Realty, Jerrys Artarama of Knoxville, Nick’s Italian Ice of Crossville, Stonehaus Winery and Wyndham Vacation Resorts.

The Art Guild would also like to thank the four handsome, non-member, hors d’oeuvres servers in their black tuxedos: Werner Feiter, Byron Hillblom, Don Koch and Harold Nagel. They are friends of the Art Guild and added much class to the opening event.

This show was made possible by all the volunteers and members of the Art Guild that gave many hours of work. Without the continued effort of guild members and the contributions from supporters, a show of this caliber would not be possible.

Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.
