A friend and I attended the July 2017 Art Happening downtown, featuring artist Susan Edwards. This art was truly special and I wanted to collect it all! Take a look at what we saw at the Sevierville Commons Art Council July Art Happening.
The board of the Sevierville Commons Arts Council with featured artist, Susan Freeman. Pictured left to right: Laurel Kiewitt, Crystal Lynn Sharp, Susan Edwards, Jill Greene, and Andrea Wilson.
I love this work. Susan said that she admired iconography and religious scenes.
This reminds me of beautiful iconography that I have seen at the Greek Orthodox church in Knoxville.
Friends of the artist from Pittman Center. Pictured are Sharon Mellor, Lee Mellor, Jack Mellor, Gary and Mary Miles.
Friends of the artist from Gatlinburg.
The treats are always good from Jennifer Dyer and Courthouse Donuts.
Susan Edwards’ friends attending the Art Happening are Pat Butler from Dandridge, and Suzanne Wedekind from Knoxville.
I loved all the music. The percussionist was pretty good too.
This multi-media work was my favorite. Outstanding!
More friends of the artist from Sevierville are Dick and Pat White.
My favorite treat is either the mini quiche or the chicken salad on tiny croissants.
This captured the imagination—-doughnuts and sopapilla type chips with a caramel sauce. Oh my!
Susan Edwards creates collaged sculptures. They are delightful! Her grandson made the jaguar.
Susan and her husband, Don Edwards. Don provided the music for the event. I loved the songs that he sang. Excellent choice of entertainment!
These were beautiful and related to the Walk of St. James in Spain. Susan has done the Walk of St. James, also known as El Camino de Santiago. The walk is a pilgrimage kind of walk to where the remains of the disciple, St. James, are traditionally said to be at rest.
As we left the event, the sun was still hot and shining on downtown Sevierville. The flowers have never looked better.
Get your tickets for the Sevierville Commons Arts Council Blast Off event coming in a couple of weeks. Food will be served around the gazebo with tables and chairs nearby for dining. Art demonstrations will be available outside as well. Inside the Arts In Common gallery, attendees will have a ‘make-it and take-it’ opportunity. Also, there will be an ongoing silent auction. Think Christmas presents! This new art space will be located in the old Bess Medical building on Bruce Street. I have sent off for my ticket. Get yours soon!
These are my favorite ways to get out and about in Sevierville. See you at the Blast Off!
