I had to stay late at work due to a huge event and regretted arriving late to the Art Happening because it was an Open House and Chamber of Commerce After-Hours event. This was going to be a good one. Nonetheless, I was able to catch a little of the December Art Happening.

I first ran into David Stanfill, membership Director for the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce, and Rich Wilson. They said that there were about 60-65 people in attendance, including over 50 Chamber of Commerce members.

It was nice meeting Jolanta Didenko and Marilyn Davenport. Marilyn was the most recent artist honored at an Art Happening. Gallant owns a business downtown called Piano Lessons and More on Bruce Street. Her Facebook page is called Music and Arts in the Smokies. Here is a link

It is always nice meeting Tom and Kathy Kiewitt and Mary Ruden at the Art Happenings. I told Kathy that I have been admiring her macrame Christmas trees in the gallery. Mary’s creations are extraordinary and several are for sale in the Arts in Common Gallery.

Also attending the December Art Happening were Faye Speck, Eme VanNus, Kaye Peltier, and Chris Myers.

Jack and Sharon Mellor enjoyed the Art Happening. They are pictured here with the featured artist, Pete Alcott.

Pete Alcott prefers to work with fused glass. The color and shine of these objects were extraordinary. Alcott lives in Gatlinburg and has a home studio. I always think that it is interesting to learn where artists do their work. Come to the Arts in Common Gallery to see these beautiful creations by Pete Alcott. IMG_1125.jpg

Unfortunately, my Art Happening visit was more brief than usual because I had to attend another event, but I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I had there. Get ready for new Art Happenings in 2019!
