Instructor: Kate Stockman
Class date: March 10 (every Sunday)
Fee: Free (requires registration)
Maximum class size: 21

Did you know that 40 minutes of creating art lowers the level of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body? Art really does heal, and it's fun, too. Join us on the third Sunday of every month to play with collage art and take a short creative break at our Sunday Collage & Play. No experience necessary.

Creating art is just playing with materials. Most of us might already have our supplies ready and organized, but just don't have or take the time to play and create! This free Sunday session offers the time, space, and supplies to encourage playing and creating to anyone who is interested in exploring the paper collage medium.

The instructor will provide an embarrassment of collage supplies (including magazines, catalogs, glue sticks, etc.) to get folks started. Attendees can bring something they're already working on, their own images, magazines, etc. (please also bring your own scissors!) Prompts will be offered, but it's completely up to you what you want to collage! This is a casual gathering to bring community together to create art and everyone is welcome to join! Bring a friend!

This event is free but requires registration.

The Art League of Henderson County announces a call for submissions for the La Vie en Rose' Fine Art Exhibit and Gala. This year, the Marked Tree Vineyard is partnering with The Art League of Henderson County to bring you the fourth annual Wine and Art Gala. The event takes place over a period of four days in June. Also collaborating are the Arts Council of Henderson County and the Hendersonville Symphony. The Fine Art Exhibit will be installed in a grand tent on the beautiful grounds of the vineyard. An exclusive ticketed preview "Gala" will take place on Thursday, June 6th, from 6 to 9 pm. The Gala event includes a special performance by the popular Jason DeCristofaro and his jazz ensemble. Attendees will enjoy a sampling of Marked Tree’s charcuterie and a complimentary glass of their award-winning wine. Following the Gala event on Thursday evening, the exhibit will be open to attendees through the balance of the weekend. Weekend events include the wildly popular Atelier fashion show by several local boutique clothiers on Friday evening, music and Saturday art events, a Latin dance party under a second large tent provided by the Arts Council of Henderson County. Sunday's line-up includes several concerts, concluding with a sunset symphony performance by the Hendersonville Symphony on Sunday. 

The Venue:  The Fine Art Exhibit venue will be an artfully decorated and draped tent with a wine bar and music performance area. In addition to the jazz performance at the ticketed Gala, a chamber music concert is planned for Saturday afternoon in the Art League tent. All attendees to every ticketed event and visitors to the winery will enter through the art exhibit on a red carpeted walkway which runs through the art exhibit.  
 
Juror:   Chicago based Beth Swanson is a curator, artist, and creative director.  The founder of Chicago’s Rostrum 312, Swanson is passionate about supporting fellow artists by creating opportunities to show and sell work. Rostrum 312 provides a platform for artists to exhibit and sell their work through pop up art galleries, mural collaborations, and installations throughout Chicago. Prior to launching Rostrum 312 Swanson held the position of Creative Director at Studio Ruckus an organization that provides small businesses, nonprofits and charities with advertising campaigns and graphic design services understanding that good causes deserve good.  Her experience in creating visual experiences in non-traditional venues is a perfect match for our goal to create a unique experience for the LaVie en Rose’ Art Gala. Swanson has a BS in Art and BA in Studio Art.

Questions related to the exhibit can be sent to the Exhibition Director at gallery@artleaguehvl.org. 

It is very important that artists upload only one jpeg image for each piece of art being submitted. Thus, if the artist submits one piece, they will submit only one photo, or two photos for two pieces of art, etc. Please check that the artwork is properly oriented in the photo and that the frame or other peripheral objects are not included in the image. Attention should also be given to the keystone effect and glare, which are common issues in photographing artwork. The exhibition juror will select the participating pieces from these digital photographs; the prize winners will be selected by the judge viewing the original art at the exhibit once the exhibit is installed. Artwork images cannot exceed 5MB.

Digital artwork image files must be titled as follows: (Artist’s) LAST NAME-FIRST NAME-TITLE – for example Jones-Adam-Water Lilies.  Any images uploaded with incorrect titles will not be eligible for jurying. Do not upload images with the numeric numbering system of your camera or cell phone.  In the questions section of the application form you will enter the title of the artwork and not the digital image label information.

Accepted work, when delivered, must include the following information on the back of the artwork:  artist name, title of the piece, category, price, email address, phone number. ALHC will use this information to correctly identify your piece.

Disclaimer 
Not All entries will be chosen to display in this exhibit. No refunds will be given if your work is not selected. We reserve the right to refuse any work that does not comply with all specifications or differs greatly from submitted digital images. Your electronically submitted entry form signifies your agreement with the terms and conditions stated herein, including to use accepted entries for advertising purposes.

Liability:
ALHC is not responsible for loss, theft, or damage during the exhibition or during transporation of the artwork to the venue. ALHC will take all reasonable care of works while the art is in its custody. Artists, if they wish, may make their own insurance arrangements to cover their artwork.

The Art League of Henderson County announces: “All Creatures, Great and Small”  


As December days slipped by, your furry and feathered friends know that spring is around the corner, growing anxious for summer.  As life isn’t all springtime, so to those that hold special memories, their voices still echo in your ears, they will remain as one of us.  Cecil Frances Alexander, a poet and hymn writer in 1800s, she is best known for this simple poem – ‘All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.’  “All Creatures Great and Small” (named from the second line of the poem) is based on James Herriot’s tales of a late-1930s Yorkshire veterinarian.  In its 2020 television adaptation, Dr. Siegfried Farnon assures his new hire surgeon that, “The animals are the easy part. It’s the people cause all the bother.”  It’s the people that the animals touch.  Artists are invited to create artworks of their favorite animal subject, with a picture in mind - the story of quiet joy that the animal tells.

Instructor:  Miriam Hughes    

Date: Saturday, April 13, 10:30-12:30

Location: The Art Place Gallery Classroom

Fee: Members: $50. , Non-members: $65.

Maximum Class Size: 10

About the Class:  Join artist Miriam Hughes for a transformative two-hour workshop exploring the art of contour and blind contour drawing. In this hands-on experience, participants will discover the profound impact of truly observing their subjects and translating what they see onto paper.

Through engaging exercises, you will learn to see beyond the outlines of objects and delve into the intricacies of form, shape, and space. Starting with simple objects and gradually progressing to more complex subjects, you will develop observational skills and artistic intuition.

Contour drawing teaches us to slow down, observe, and capture the essence of what we see with a single, continuous line. Blind contour drawing takes this practice further, challenging us to trust our instincts and hand-eye coordination without looking at the paper.

This workshop is not just about drawing; it's about learning to see. Whether you're an experienced artist looking to refine your skills or a beginner eager to explore the world of drawing, this workshop offers valuable insights and techniques that will enhance your creative journey.

Discover the joy of drawing and the art of truly seeing the world around you. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided.  If you have a favorite sketchbook, please feel free to bring it.

Artist Bio:

Miriam Hughes is a former medical illustrator and a watercolor painter with years of experience but, fortunately, the ability to understand we never stop learning.
Creating relaxed and fun learning environments feeds Miriam's passion for teaching.

Location: The Art Place Gallery Classroom

Fee: Members: $125., Non-members: $ 140.

Maximum Class Size: 25

About the Class:  Relationships are one of the most rewarding — as well as the most frustrating aspects of our lives. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of how we live, our self-esteem, and our careers. Yet, we often find the behavior of others baffling — even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the things we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our relationships. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be. This is a workshop for Couples. Couples will work together to connect through Somatic Art. We will access areas where the individual may be blocked from their artistic expression and how the couple may find a deeper connection through artistic communication. Using tools from EMDR/Bilateral Stimulation, Enneagram Typing/Character types, and IBSR Somatic mapping each participant will create a deeper connection with themselves and others.

We will remove unhealthy stress and open up the artist's palette to physical expressions of color, mental descriptors, and balancing of the art/science part of our brain, or organized side while opening it up to the fully self-expressed side. We will remove barriers to creativity and discover what artwork best suits you.

We will help participants recognize personal strengths as well as to uncover the blind spots that they bring to their relationships. If you want to improve your relationship with a spouse, child, friend, business associate, or family member, this Workshop will be invaluable.


What skills, experience or pre-requisites are required for this class?
Pre-req's teacher will send some materials via email for participants to fill out at least 24 hours before class. Participants will bring, tissue, a journal, favorite pens, pencils, and markers.

Instructor:  Judi Moolten    

Date: June 15, 1:00-4:00

Location: The Art Place Gallery Classroom

Fee: Members: $125., Non-members: $ 140.

Maximum Class Size: 25

About the Class:  Relationships are one of the most rewarding — as well as the most frustrating aspects of our lives. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of how we live, our self-esteem, and our careers. Yet, we often find the behavior of others baffling — even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the things we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our relationships. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be. This is a workshop for Couples. Couples will work together to connect through Somatic Art. We will access areas where the individual may be blocked from their artistic expression and how the couple may find a deeper connection through artistic communication. Using tools from EMDR/Bilateral Stimulation, Enneagram Typing/Character types, and IBSR Somatic mapping each participant will create a deeper connection with themselves and others.

We will remove unhealthy stress and open up the artist's palette to physical expressions of color, mental descriptors, and balancing of the art/science part of our brain, or organized side while opening it up to the fully self-expressed side. We will remove barriers to creativity and discover what artwork best suits you.

We will help participants recognize personal strengths as well as to uncover the blind spots that they bring to their relationships. If you want to improve your relationship with a spouse, child, friend, business associate, or family member, this Workshop will be invaluable.


What skills, experience or pre-requisites are required for this class?
Pre-req's teacher will send some materials via email for participants to fill out at least 24 hours before class. Participants will bring, tissue, a journal, favorite pens, pencils, and markers.
