This competition/showcase is an awareness program in advocating for a new modern skate park for Chattanooga.
This is the second happening of the ongoing bi-monthly gathering for fiber-related artists. If you quilt, knit, crochet, weave, embroider, create macrame’, design clothing, do needlework, etc. – come on out to work on our projects alongside one another and meet other fiber-related artists. Makers of all skill levels are welcome! If you’d like to sketch or design; that’s welcome, too.
Watercolor sketching will introduce students to watercolor sketching and sketching on location. The class will cover the basics of sketch composition, supplies needed, gesture drawing, basic building perspective, working with ink and the basics of applying watercolor washes. Students will spend time sketching in Coolidge Park. All students will leave the class with all the materials needed to start a daily sketching habit.
On Saturday, November 3, Gallery Hop 2018 will open the holiday shopping season as a day-long celebration of the visual arts: an event that invites the public to visit and support local art galleries and artists studios. Coordinated by a collective of arts professionals, Gallery Hop is an occasion for cultivating Chattanooga's creative capital and will feature a robust schedule of exhibits, art demonstrations, interactive activities, music, and culinary tasting.
This collaboration exhibit combines AVA, AVA's 4 Bridges Arts Festival, and the Hunter Museum of American Art. The 2018 4Bridges Emerging Artists have created art to be showcased at the AVA gallery, specifically inspired by work in the Hunter Museum's collection. Our Landis Education Gallery will feature artwork from the middle school of McCallie. This reception takes place during Gallery Hop, so be sure to stop by as you explore the various other galleries that day!
