I was glad to make it to the Sevierville Commons Arts Council October Art Happening this evening. At an Art Happening you meet the featured artist and see examples of their best work. Featured artist, Donna Arensbak, presented some beautiful pottery pieces. Here is a quick rundown.
I liked this entrance sign on the front of the Arts in Common Gallery with Sevier County Bank reflected in the background.
Pictured left to right: Featured artist, Donna Arensbak, with her daughter, Lea Cole.
Pictured left to right: Bill Griffith, Outreach Liaison for Arrowmont, Donna Arensbak, and Bill May, Executive Director of Arrowmont. Donna is connected to Arrowmont since 1999 as a student, a worker, and as a volunteer. Her daughter also took classes at Arrowmont from childhood to adulthood. Certainly, there is a deep family connection to the arts and crafts education center in Gatlinburg.
Also enjoying the Art Happening are Jill Greene, Frank Bulman, Donna Arensbak, Tammy Bulman, and Kathy Bulman.
Sevier Commons Art Council Members were working quickly behind the counter to complete sales. You must see the beautiful things available in the Arts in Common Gallery!
This bowl created by the artist was fabulous and I now could kick myself for not buying it!
Seasonal pumpkins on sale in the gallery window.
I know a lot of Smoky Bear fans who would be interested in this creation.
I found the catering to be spectacular!
A tower of treats!
It is not necessary to eat dinner before an Art Happening. Just come in as soon as you can after work and enjoy the evening.
The sun was starting to go down on Bruce Street as I exited the event and made my way to the car. After talking to Jill Greene, I already look forward to the last two Art Happenings of 2018. Artists, beautiful creations, nice catering, and interesting people—mark your calendar for the second Thursday of each month. It is a favorite way to get out and about in Sevierville.
