There was another great Art Happening in downtown Sevierville last Thursday evening. This event presented the work of Dasha Jamison. Lights shining from within Courthouse Donuts served as a beacon as I arrived after dark for the event. Come along and see the work of this special artist.
Art Happenings take place from 5:30-8:00 p.m. and are free to attendees. These events are sponsored by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council and the Sevierville Commons Association. I missed the first half of the event because of an 11 hour day at work; however, I was able to catch the last part of the evening and to hear Dasha address the gathering.
The Sevier County Courthouse is reflected in the windows in Courthouse Donuts. Several pieces of Dasha’s art are featured in the front window.

I love this work. The brush strokes make me feel the ocean breeze rolling off the ocean.
Title of the previous work references a trip to Hawaii. I would like to be there!
Jeff Earle serves guests with wine from a boutique winery in Napa. The owners are friends of Earle and Dasha. It was divine!
This a small, boutique winery in Napa. If you like reds then it will please you.

I was lucky to arrive in time to hear Dasha address the gathering for the Art Happening. Dasha is originally from Russia and has taken art classes since childhood. Her mother encouraged her to explore this talent and passion. I admired the paintings and drawings that covered the walls.
High five for the November Art Happening!
Dasha Jamison, featured artist for the Art Happening, has attended classes with instructor, Camille Barton Spires, pictured left. Camille owns Art Studio of the Smokies in Gatlinburg. Camille said that Dasha attended the first Art Happening in June 2016. At that time, a couple of her ‘exploratory’ pieces of art were displayed in the windows of Courthouse Donuts. Camille said,” Tonight, her artwork covered the interior walls with her very own show! Dasha is not only talented, but driven with inspiration to succeed.”
I love the vivid, bold colors in Dasha’s work.
These two may be my favorites. However, I love the beach scenes too.

Love this picture and the beautiful chalk pieces.
Who wouldn’t want to be here? I can almost hear the waves.
I enjoyed the music of Andy Springfield, a musician with the Kingdom Heirs. My sisters and best friend will tell you that I love this tune! He played it without being asked. Loved it!
It was time to go home so I exited Courthouse Donuts and took a last look at this nice sign. Make sure you come to an Art Happening some time! It is one of my favorite ways to get out and about in Sevierville.
