Last night, we invited our campers back for our annual Summer Camp Showcase! Students and parents arrived and smiles were all around. As the gallery filled, proud artists spotted their work to show off to their families. Hors d'oeuvres were served and bubble wands were made on the back porch.
The campers felt so special seeing their artwork displayed in our gallery and mingling with their teachers and fellow artists. We also had our Fall instructors demoing downstairs. Until next year!
Join us next week for our annual Art of the Art Teacher exhibit opening reception! This show features work from Georgia art educators and will display a variety of media such as printmaking, oil and acrylic painting, photography, and 3D art. Stay tuned for a sneak peak of the show!
Our Upcycle/Recycle/Artcycle theme this week is a success!
Mark your calendars for the Summer Camp Showcase to see some of this amazing work: Thursday August 2 from 6 to 8 pm. Also, this theme will be repeating the week of July 23 so don't miss out!
We are excited to welcome back Mostly Mutts for our Second Annual Off the Leash Pet Themed Art Show. Last year was a great success! Many talented artists and dedicated volunteers generously donated their time and artwork to raise money to help animals in need.
The Off the Leash 2018 exhibition will be on display in our gallery October 4-October 26. We will kick the show off with a reception Thursday, October 4th 6PM-8PM. Join us then for refreshments, raffles, live music, and more. This year participating artists may choose to donate 30% or 100% of their sales to Mostly Mutts. Artists may submit up to four ready to hang pieces to the show. For more details please see our artist agreement below.
On Thursday, we hosted our IMPRESSED Printmaking Show Reception. We enjoyed seeing the artists and teaming with Red Onion Press, Blick Art Materials, and Simmertime Cafe for an amazing evening with delicious food. There was even a double rainbow at the end of the night!
Our Best in Show award went to Rachel Burgener for Where the Sleepy Children Go. Rachel is a Kennesaw State University art student.
Honorable Mentions went to Rick Paller, Michelle Adams, and Daniel Arnold. The show will be displayed in our gallery until the first week of June.
What an active spring it's been so far! We're headed into May with thoughts of summer camp, fall classes and all of the great events coming up at the Art Station. Summer camps and teen classes are filling up, so be sure to register today to secure your child's spot. Fall class registration opens next week on May 2. We have a great line up as usual, and we can't wait for everyone to join us.
We'll be at Acworth's Smoke on the Lake Festival on May 11 & 12 with free crafts for the kids. We're really looking forward to this event as it's the first time we've attended. Bring an empty belly, and we'll see you there!
