THE ART BEHIND DESIGN
An Art and Design Exhibition & Cocktail Party! June 21, 2012, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
Alfred Williams & Company
716 Division Street, Nashville
Free Valet. Cocktails. H'ordeuvres. Music. All welcome.
$5 Suggested Donation benefiting
The American Institute of Architect's Community Partner.
Whether it's a brilliant idea on an old napkin, a beautiful hand-rendered sketch, or a delightfully intricate model, this exhibition will unearth and present the hidden artifacts of the art behind design. It's a rarity that an audience can formally experience the creative intimacy behind Nashville's most influential architects and interior designers.
The exhibition will highlight intriguing blueprints, sketches, photographs, models and various other fine art works by leading architects and designers. These are the ideas and outlets that amount to the aesthetic growth of our city and communities.
This will be Alfred Williams & Company's 5th quarterly, charitable art and design exhibition. 100% of donations and fine art proceeds will benefit Rebuilding Together Nashville, who's volunteers provide free rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of low-income Americans. Many of Nashville's flood victims have received significant help from this organization. Let's support them with a $5 suggested donation at the door.
Joining the festivities is Nashville's first mobile boutique, The Trunk as well as The Grilled Cheeserie. 10% of proceeds will benefit Rebuilding Together Nashville.
Dates of Exhibition: June 21- August 23. Free and open: M-F 9am-5pm.
Children's Theatre of Knoxville: "The Miracle Worker"
ONLY 4 PERFORMANCES LEFT OF CTK'S "THE MIRACLE WORKER" a Tony-winning play, recommended for ages 6 and up, including adults.
The REMAINING PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE is:
Thursday, June 21 at 7 PM, Friday, June 22 at 7 PM, Saturday, June 23 at 1 PM and 5 PM.
1888. Tuscumbia, Alabama. Kate Keller needs some help. Her daughter Helen is deaf and blind… and a complete terror! She is wild and rambunctious, and everyone in the house has spoiled her rotten. She is becoming a danger to herself and everyone
around her. Help arrives in the unlikely form of 20-year-old Annie Sullivan, herself once blind, having grown up in the asylums of the North, and determined to teach Helen language. When Captain Keller puts a two-week deadline on Annie’s teaching, she must work a miracle if she is to change the hearts and minds of the Kellers and delve into the darkness and silence which entraps young Helen. The Miracle Worker is a play bustling with life, humor, thrills, and an inspirational miracle you won’t soon forget.

The Arts Center In Athens: Classwork: Adult Students of the Arts Center
Category: Exhibitions & visual art
Athens Area Council for the Arts announces its upcoming exhibit “CLASSWORK: ADULT STUDENTS OF THE ARTS CENTER 2011-12”. Exhibit dates are June 8 – August 24, 2012. AACA has been offering classes in the visual and performing arts at The Arts Center for children and adults since opening in 2005. This exhibit is intended to showcase works by adult students who have taken classes in the past year. A variety of media has been taught by an impressive array of instructors, including this year’s instructors Sandy Brown (watercolors), Joy Merckson (acrylics and drawing), Billie Stevens (stained glass), and Andy Phipps (clay). Many of the students were beginners who had never had a course in their chosen medium, while others have taken many classes at The Arts Center and other venues. A sampling of their works that were either done in class or while taking a class will be on display to show the impact The Arts Center has had on their art. Landscapes, abstracts, portraits, and other subject matter will reveal the extent of their training, as some of the students had never picked up a paint brush before beginning classes here, while others enrolled to improve their skills and explore new directions.
The Arts Center invites you to view this exhibit and be as amazed and as proud as we are by the abundance of talent present in our community. The public, artists, family and friends are also invited to attend the opening reception on Tuesday, June 12, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. The Arts Center instructors and many of the students will be on hand to talk about their experience and their art.
The Arts Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information or directions, call (423) 745-8781 or visit our website at www.athensartscouncil.org. All programs of AACA are funded in part by the Tennessee Arts Commission.
