We are to accept, love, and support each other," she says.

Please join us for some amazing art, light refreshments, and of course great coffee!

Art Guild at Fairfield Glade: Exhibition by Kirsten Murray and Kim Griffin

Category: Exhibitions, visual art, Fine Crafts and Free event

Kirsten Murray and Kim Griffin, are the Art Guild’s featured member-artists for September. They will be honored at the Fun and Wine Reception on Friday, September 2, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., at the Plateau Creative Arts Center located at 451 Lakeview Drive in Fairfield Glade. Also on display will be a special member exhibit entitled Looking Down. Wearing masks is optional. Wine will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

Kirsten Murray’s lifelong career was in global logistics. In 2015, she retired in Fairfield Glade. Kirsten has always had a creative side and often had a fiber art project in her hands, as time permitted. Fast forward 35 years, her desire to focus on her art was rekindled. Several people contributed to Kirsten’s expanding skill set in the last few years. A friend of hers introduced her to the ancient Japanese braiding art of Kumihimo. This inspired her to learn about beads and beading techniques. This led to taking classes at the William Holland School for Lapidary Arts. Renowned professional bead artist Sherry Serafini introduced Kirsten to bead embroidery during some of her workshops and completely unleashed Kirsten’s inner beading beast in 2018. As she leaned more, Kirsten developed her own unique and easily identified stye and artistry.
Kirsten’s unique and easily identifiable stye and artistry has been recognized by patrons in many successful sales venues and art shows. She has won many awards for her wearable art creations, including Best in Show, 1st Place and Honorable Mention.

Kim Griffin is a native Texan who moved to Tennessee in 2012 with her husband of 42 years. Kim has participated in art shows across Tennessee and Texas, and loves the interaction with customers. Her work has been featured on the cover of two magazines, Art Doll quarterly, and Haute Handbags, and she has written several articles for each publication. Kim’s interested include beadwork, painting, Tambour Embroidery, travel, and gardening.
