Art Happening: November, 2017

IMG_3404

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.

IMG_3264

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.

IMG_3395

Title of the previous work references a trip to Hawaii. I would like to be there!

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.

IMG_3385

High five for the November Art Happening!

IMG_3382

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.

IMG_3398

These two may be my favorites. However, I love the beach scenes too.

IMG_3400

Love this picture and the beautiful chalk pieces.

IMG_3399

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!

IMG_3401

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.

Music in Common

Last Friday night, I learned that I need to keep a portable chair in the back of my car in case I need it. What prompted that discovery? I found Music in Common by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council last Friday night and hope to go again very soon.

IMG_0729.PNG

The weather was warm and comfortable so it was a pleasure to drop by and hear some music at the downtown Sevierville  gazebo.

IMG_0699Boogertown Gap performed on October 6th.

 

Listeners were treated to music that brought back times from early settlers in the Smoky Mountains.

IMG_0709

IMG_0719

 

IMG_0722

I saw people drive by in their cars and slow down to a stop to hear the pretty music coming from the gazebo. It was rather enchanting.

IMG_0721

It is kind of special when you can attend an event downtown on a warm evening. There will be three more Friday performances this month so drop by, relax, and enjoy the music. And consider carrying a chair in the back of your car…

See you out and about in Sevierville. 

 

 

Sevierville Commons Arts Council Launches ‘Blast Off’ Event

19693597_376427846093209_7058123243321069825_o

There was a big crowd on Bruce Street this evening attending the Blast Off event for the Sevierville Commons Arts Council. People from all parts of the county came to support the arts in downtown Sevierville. There were refreshments, music, auction items, and demonstrations galore. Follow along as I take you on a tour of the event. It was the hottest ticket in town this evening!

IMG_6743 2

First of all, I know it will be a fun time when I see Bruce Street blocked off!

IMG_6744

It is fun to walk right down the middle of the street. But I wasn’t thinking and took the sidewalk instead. Oh well…

IMG_6745

We were greeted at the door by Pat. He showed us where to check in and it went quickly.

IMG_6753

There was a line out the door when I arrived so I sat on a bench outside and waited for Melinda. The line went through quite quickly as we entered the door. Above, Andrea Wilson and other volunteers process guest arrivals.

IMG_6754

There was rain approaching so I liked how the dinner part was to be conducted, rather than have it out near the gazebo with downpours on the way. We drew a voucher from a bowl to determine the location of our dinner. The draw was Mom’s Vintage Kitchen. We love all those places listed above and were happy to go to Mom’s later. What a great idea for a dinner lottery. Fun!

IMG_6751

IMG_6755

Artist, David Freeman, was drawing profiles as we entered the door. I saw him do one on TV this week as a promotion for the event. A fun addition to the festivities.

IMG_6761

Attendees pictured left to right: Michael Johnson, Sevier Commons member Austin Williams, and Katie Williams.

IMG_6769

I expected a lot of art items for the silent auction and was not disappointed! Melinda told me that this artist is often featured at Arrowmont.

IMG_6783

IMG_6801

A popular silent auction item. The cups were beautiful and the Old Mill coffee is probably great. I am having auction regrets for not bidding on this, but I had to set a limit of 2 items.

IMG_6787

IMG_6764

The Johnson family introduces a future art lover to the event. Pictured left to right are Stefanie, Sheena, and Alex Johnson with a sweet little attendee.

IMG_6794

I was glad to see Chris Webb with his wife, Summer. I know Chris’ mom, Patt Webb, and send her greetings!

IMG_6776

Gail Monson, Ken Greene, and Jill Greene enjoying the Blast Off event to benefit the Sevierville Commons Art Council. Proceeds from this event will help to purchase things needed for the gallery. Furthermore, the event will help us learn more about the new art space downtown.

IMG_6750

Melinda Derrick and I were happy to see our friend, Joey Rose, pictured right. The space to his right in the picture above would be for his wife, Sheley, who was a little under the weather and couldn’t attend. I saved the space to his right for her. (Hi, Sheley!) Joey and Sheley are old friends of ours and support the local arts scene, as does Melinda.

IMG_6792

Attendees pictured left to right: Justin Duncan, Jennifer Duncan, and Andrew Temple.

This silent auction item was quite interesting. I don’t need many things so ‘experiences’ are very interesting.

IMG_6802

Crystal Sharp takes a moment to speak to the group and make announcements. There were over 159 attendees while I was there and over 62 items were donated for the silent auction. I bid on two. Will I get them? Stay tuned!

IMG_6798

The music was excellent! Musicians Greg Fitch and Pat Corn were wonderful and added to the ambiance during the evening.

IMG_6806

I remember when there was only 1 restaurant downtown. Now, we have so many more. Many thanks to these restaurants who added to a successful event.

IMG_6805

Love the creative way to thank sponsors. So nice!

IMG_6777

Jennifer Dyer, from Courthouse Donuts, looking at vintage pictures. We think that the upper right picture is the current location of  her business. By the way, Courthouse Donuts just won third place for the best donuts in the state, the only one on the survey located in East Tennessee.

I was intrigued by the ‘fairy doors’ on a table by the Sevierville Senior Center. Very interesting creations! Google it or go to Pinterest to see more ideas.

IMG_6807

As we left, there was more art and even demonstrations outside.

IMG_6811

I love the food voucher drawing idea. We proceeded to Mom’s Vintage Kitchen for tomato basil soup and chicken salad sandwiches. So good!

IMG_6813

Storms were headed our way so we hurried to our cars. The courthouse is pictured above under stormy skies.

The Sevierville Commons Arts Council is thinking of having this event every year to raise money for their Arts in Common Gallery and programming. I had a great time and will go every year. Consider going too if you couldn’t make it this year. The Blast Off event was a great way to get out and about in Sevierville. 

See you on Bruce Street!

Farmers Market + Celebrity Canine Visit+ New Art Opening + Visit to United Way Office= A Lively Day Downtown: Friday, June 17, 2017

IMG_3688You may remember my previous story about a visit last Friday from Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund and his brother Oakley. I was just walking to the famers market and there they were! Mayor Waters came out to welcome them to the city. I texted Anita that I would be a few minutes late.

IMG_3726 (1)

The dogs and their owners spent the week in Sevier County and then did a book signing in Knoxville on Saturday. Such cute pups and well behaved!

IMG_3837

Next, I met Anita at Courthouse Donuts for coffee, but there was there was not much time to chat. By 11:30, time was passing quickly for the market closes at 1:00. We were off to the market.

IMG_3735

First stop, the ‘make-it-and take-it’ booth, sponsored by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council.

IMG_3747

I tried my hand at screen printing a t-shirt. I chose hot pink animal paws on a white T-shirt. There was also a jewelry making table and more. It was free and very busy. IMG_3753

People created a design on their shirt then let it dry while they shopped. This was the last “make-it-and-take-it” opportunity for the year. Council members obtained grants to provide the sessions this summer. If you are a business and would like to help them provide more sessions this summer, just contact the Sevierville Commons Art Council. Here is a link to their website and contact info: https://www.seviervillecommonsartscouncil.org

IMG_3748.jpg

These kids loved the ‘make-it-and-take-it’ booths at the farmers market. Look at the necklaces that they made! I admired them and wished that I had time to make one too. Their mother and I do HIIT classes together at NFC.

IMG_3742

We saw our friend, Gina Davis. She had bought a basil plant because some kind of wildlife has been eating the basil at her home.

IMG_3756My favorite things at the farmers market!

IMG_3758

I like this vendor from Grainger County. Always friendly.

IMG_3795I saw a lot of Methodists downtown last Friday!

IMG_3802

More shoppers enjoying the market.

No music in the gazebo last week. Only the sound of a chain saw working it’s magic.

IMG_3794IMG_3764

I missed the chain saw artist at work, but hope to catch him again in the future. These bears are adorable!

There is a new creative space on Bruce Street and it is good! Stay tuned to my next blog story for more about Charlotte’s Creative Space, by local artist, Charlotte Wear.

IMG_3799

Jim McGill, Chamber of Commerce Membership Co-Ordinator, is happy to see busy vendors and shoppers downtown.

IMG_3807

The plants downtown have never been more beautiful!

IMG_3809

A new restaurant is going into the Fox Building and it is going to be exciting. There will be a back patio, as seen in the drawing posted in this window. This is one of the best restaurants in Market Square in Knoxville, but there is a usually a long wait for a table. It is coming to our town soon. Stay tuned for more info!

IMG_3822

I noticed a new corporate office downtown.

IMG_3815

On the way to another store, Melinda and I ran into Amy Harper, Executive Director of the United Way of Sevier County. Amy asked if we wanted to come up to see their office. And what a nice space it is!

IMG_3829 I loved her view of the courthouse. She often sees people/tourists/visitors taking pictures at the Dolly Parton statue and has the perfect view from her window. Wonderful natural light coming in through the windows.

IMG_3831

Amy Harper and Emily Whaley in the United Way office. Emily just chaired the Night at the Derby fundraiser last April. Make sure you go next year!

IMG_3835

In the meantime, get ready for Drums on Dam, part 2 !

IMG_3827

I barely had time to do everything on my agenda so next week I will plan on arriving much earlier to the downtown Sevierville farmers market. It was a busy Friday while we were out and about in Sevierville. See you there!

Art Happening Downtown Sevierville: February 23, 2017

fullsizerender

The Sevierville Commons Arts Council is off to great start in 2017 with Art Happenings downtown. They presented the first Art Happening of 2017 on Thursday evening and it was full of attendees from Sevier County, Maryville, and beyond. I arrived a few minutes late, but was in time to enjoy a nice event. Here is what I saw…

fullsizerender1

I walked in to see quite a crowd. In fact, the biggest crowd so far for an Art Happening in downtown Sevierville. The featured artist this month was Mary Ruden, an artist who is inspired by the natural world, particularly butterflies, orchids, and other flowers. She is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and the American Botanical Society. She creates paintings, photography, and sculpture. This creation below was so beautiful that I had to touch it. Don’t tell.

img_3672

fullsizerender2

I was impressed with her banners that once hung in downtown Knoxville in the Arts District.

img_3660

Every table was full of attendees. I saw quite a few people that I knew so it was quite a lively evening.

fullsizerender4

Music was provided by Munson and Wear. When I walked in, they were singing a song by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. One of my favorite groups! It was great and their music provided a nice ‘vibe.’

Artists talk about their work and it is always interesting. I always learn something new.

The evening was so nice that the front doors were open to the breeze.

img_3704

I love the big windows in Dyers Downtown that face the courthouse.

You can see the reflection in the window above!

fullsizerender

As I walked down the street to my car, I couldn’t resist taking just one more picture of the  courthouse…

img_3723

…and the Dolly Parton statue.

There were no tourists around so I snapped a picture in peace; however, passersby probably thought that I was the tourist.

The Sevierville Commons Arts Council will install the next artist’s work next month and the next Happening is tentatively scheduled for April. Stay tuned to learn more!

It is an enjoyable event and I always look forward to the Art Happenings. See you at the next one when we are out and about in Sevierville. 

Sevierville Commons Arts Council Hosts Art Happening: December 8, 2016

img_1178

The courthouse was festive as I walked to Courthouse Donuts to see the Sevierville Art Happening last Thursday evening. As luck would have it, I was able to park right in front of the courthouse, with the event only steps away. Although I couldn’t stay long due to fighting off a cold, I was able to meet the artist and hear the best singing duo in East Tennessee. Here is what I saw at the Happening.

img_1179

It is always nice strolling by the windows of Courthouse Donuts to see the art on display. Warm and cheery inside.

img_1195

First, I ran into my friends Sheeley and Joey Rose. They had arrived earlier and were chatting with artists in attendance. We talked about the wildfires and quickly caught up with other December news.

Next, I saw the Pea Pickin’ Hearts singing at the front of the room. How nice to hear them again. Their harmonies really create a lovely, relaxed atmosphere.

img_1200

fullsizerender

I met the featured artist of the month, Crystal Lynn Sharp. Notice the canvas behind her has a special technique where it is gathered or ruched to add to the texture of the scene. I loved the colors too.

img_1212

Here is a side view of a painting so you see the folds more closely. I had never seen that done before! Multi-dimensional.

fullsizerender1

Here is a copy of her business card so you can find her online, by email, or by telephone.

img_1205

img_1206

Sorry for the light reflections. I am trying to figure out how to manage them in photos. However, this summarizes Crystal’s professional background and techniques.

img_1210

It is amazing how beautiful art is on a brick wall backdrop.

Here are a few more paintings by the featured artist for December, Crystal Lynn Sharp.

Pictured from left to right: Laurel Kiewitt, Elizabeth Cole, daughter of Crystal Lynn Sharp. Next, Crystal Lynn Sharp, Andrea Wilson, Christina Crofoot, Jill Green, and Stephen Jenkins.

I hated to leave because I found out that more people arrived later who I really enjoy seeing. Hopefully, there will be no cold for me to fight off next time. The Sevierville Commons Arts Council will be sure to host many Art Happenings next year. It is one of my favorite ways to get out and about in Sevierville. 

See you next time!

Art Happening Downtown Sevierville, October 19, 2016

It was a nice evening downtown Sevierville at the third Art Happening, presented by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council. There were quite a few new faces at this event at Dyers Downtown. Music, art, snacks, presentation of the featured artist, and talks by Y-12 Credit Union and a representative from the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center completed the fast paced evening.

img_7618

Featured artist for October is Nelson Ziegler, a painter and artist who created the wood pieces featured at the top of this story. They were stunning! Ziegler is also an award winning watercolor and oil painter. He graduated from the Art Institute of Boston and Northwestern Academy of Watercolor. Below are some examples of his paintings.

As I was leaving, I noticed attendees outside looking at the window art and conversing with the artist who created them, Crystal Sharp.

People were standing outside enjoying nice temperatures and fresh air while enjoying conversation and paintings. This is what a great downtown can be. It is happening now. Our downtown is ‘on its way’ and the Sevierville Commons is driving this revitalization. As the picture below shows, the Sevierville Commons Arts Council is also helping to lead the way.

img_7685

The Sevierville Commons Arts Council will be planning the next Art Happening soon. Drop by if you get a chance. You don’t to be an artist, rather just enjoy art. An Art Happening is one of the best ways to get out and about in Sevierville.

Sevierville Downtown Farmers Market, September 30, 2016

sam_0887

A ‘self-prescribed rest day’ allowed me a trip to the downtown Sevierville Farmers Market on Friday. There are just a few more weeks left for the market. Although it is gearing down, there are still some exciting things left in the year for the downtown Sevierville Commons area. For example, look for some exciting things from the Sevierville Arts Council.

sam_0886

I stopped to chat a few minutes with a leader with the Sevierville Commons Arts Council.

They are planning a holiday market on December 2 and 3rd. December 3rd may coincide with the Sevierville Christmas parade so that should be a big day downtown. Check the Sevierville Commons Arts Council  website for more information.

https://www.seviervillecommonsartscouncil.org/events.html

The next Art Happening will take place on Thursday, October 13th at Courthouse Donuts/ Dyers Downtown. The reception will honor artist Nelson Ziegler, an award winning painter and wood turner. Drop by any time to meet local artists downtown.

I bought an orange and white Vols necklace from this vendor last time for a great price. Go Vols!

sam_0893

sam_0894

This vendor comes from Grainger County and can also be found at the Saturday morning farmers market at the Sevierville Farmers Co-Op. He will remember your face and is quite friendly. The tomatoes are great.

sam_0904

sam_0901

This vendor specializes in hot dogs and lemonade. I tried the sweet version, which was good. Not overly sweet. He makes a version with Splenda as well. Pretty good! He will give you a sample if you want to try it.

sam_0902

LOL.

I hate to see the farmers market gearing down, but I realize that it is October. However, there will still be a lot of things happening in the downtown area if you are out and about in Sevierville. 

See you at the Art Happening on October 13th at Courthouse Donuts!
