      A LOTTO Art - Let's make this a another Masterpiece Fundraiser!      

Help to make our second annual 'A LOTTO Art' an even bigger success! You can help us make this work by donating a piece of art, or better yet, several pieces of your work, valued at a minimum of $250.00.
 
Our goal is to have 100 works at a minimum, but we'd love to have more.  Artwork can be 2-D or 3-D, or a collection, for example multiple pieces of jewelry or pottery.  We will have feature stories in several print publications, exposure in a variety of online event websites including our local Visit Hendersonville NC online event listing, plus our own social media campaign.  This is a great demonstration to our community that our members are passionate about contributing to our success.  
 
Here’s how the lottery-style event works:
Art League Artists donate artwork that would normally sell for a minimum of $250 and some already donated valued considerably higher.  Art collectors and enthusiasts can purchase a “LOTTO” ticket for $100.
Each ticket entitles the holder to take home a piece or collection of artwork for just $100 regardless of the value of the painting!  Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis online through the Art League website or at the Gallery at Art Place.  Ticket holders can preview the available artwork on the Art League website and get a sneak peak of the artwork in an exhibit opening August  3rd.  The live LOTTO event will be held on Thursday, August 15, where LOTTO ticket numbers will be called in random order and ticket holders choose their "prize" artwork.  You can still donate up until August 15 and drop your piece off to be in the exhibit as it grows right up until the drawing!
 
The more art pieces donated, the more tickets we can sell.  Let's make this a masterpiece in generosity!

Instructor:  Stephen Hernandez

Date: July 24 & 25, 1-4pm

Location: The Art Place Gallery Classroom

Fee: Members: $175., Non-members: $190.

Maximum Class Size: 2

About the Class: Discover the art of fused glass in this intimate, hands-on workshop for beginners. No previous experience required.
You'll learn:
- Safe practices for handling glass
- Glass cutting techniques
- Fusing schedules and kiln operation basics
Leave with new skills and your own glass creations!
Class size is limited to ensure individual attention. Look for future class dates if this session is full.
Create two unique fused glass pieces to take home. You'll also receive our comprehensive safety and fusing guide for future projects.

Supplies:  All materials and tools provided.  Wear closed-toe shoes. We wil provide safety materials including n-95 mask, eye protection, glass and professional equipment.

Artist Bio:  I hail from Baton Rouge, LA. My interest in art began at a young age and continued as I dabbled through class work at Louisiana State University (LSU). In 1985, I co-founded Glasmosaik Studios, a stained glass studio where I continued studying the craft and worked to develop a signature style.
For the last 10 years, I have been focusing on fused glass art, creating pieces that are both visually interesting and functional. I currently reside nested among the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside Brevard, NC, where the natural beauty all around that inspires my work.
My fused glass pieces are characterized by their vibrant colors, intricate patterns, manipulating chemical reactions between different color glass, and use of different surface textures. I attempt to combine technical skills with creative vision to produce pieces that are both visually stunning and structurally sound.
My goal is to create art that is not only striking but also evokes emotion and tells a story. The process of fusing glass is a dance between control and letting go, and the end result is always a beautiful and unique piece that can be appreciated for its aesthetic and technical qualities.

Instructor:  Judi Moolten    

Date: August 10, 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.

      A LOTTO Art - Let's make this a another Masterpiece Fundraiser!      

Event Date:  Thursday, August 15th 5:30 pm.  Auction will start at 6:00 pm

 

This event is a great way for art enthusiasts looking to expand their art collection to acquire an original work for a fraction of what they would pay at full price.
 
Here’s how it works:
 
Art League Artists are donating a piece or pieces of artwork that would normally sell for a minimum of $250 and many valued considerably higher. A collection of 2D and 3D pieces will be offered, including paintings, drawings, photography, collage, jewelry, ceramic, and sculpture. Art collectors and enthusiasts can purchase a “LOTTO” ticket for $100.  Only 100 tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis, so get in on the action early. Tickets are available on-line through the Art League website or at Art Place Gallery.
 
The live LOTTO event will be held on Thursday August 15th where LOTTO ticket numbers will be called in random order. Once you purchase your ticket, you will be issued a number. When your number is called during the event, you will select your piece from what is still available.  You can browse all the work which will be posted in an on-line gallery or get a
sneak peek of the works in the gallery exhibit at the Art Place Studios gallery. The on-line gallery will be available soon and will continue to grow as new works are donated, so keep checking it.  Prior to August 15th, a list of the available pieces be downloaded online or at Art Place so that you can mark your top picks. From there, it’s up to Lady Luck. If you can’t be present to make your choice, you can send a lucky stand-in to take your place!
 
The preview exhibit will kick off on August 3 rd from 2-4 pm. and will run through August 18th when the live LOTTO drawing will take place.  The event will include refreshments and some fun entertainment from a few of our talented Art League members.
 
Only a  100 tickets will be sold, so get your ticket early to be sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity to take home (or gift) a one-of-a-kind piece of art from some of the most talented artists in the area, for a price that is double or more your $100 investment.

About the Class:  Come create your own flag book! With simple materials and attention to detail, we'll move step by step into creating a flag book, so called because its pages are small, like flags. I created one (pictured) entitled "Flags" and listed some of the times when I saw red flag warnings that I did not pay attention to at the time. I added white flags of wonderful events that have occurred in my life. There is also a pocket for extra flags for future events. We'll have plenty of time to creatively play.

What will your flag book contain? Come to class with a topic or create the book to fill in later. Gardens? Trees? Grandkids? Family? Animals?   All you need is a bold willingness to try something new!

Supplies:  All supplies are provided. BYO tools: exacto knife, ruler, healing pad for table protection, images, scissors, pencil, handmade papers (I will bring some, too, for the covers), close-up glasses if you need them, etc.   Before class time, consider what you want your flag book to hold. (Such as: What is one of your passions? Or maybe a word to explore. Or yin/yang comparisons...). If you want to bring images, feel free. I will have some adhesives.

Artist Bio:  Kate Stockman relishes creating and teaching, and she is happiest when she is doing both at the same time. A bookbinder, Kate is also an assemblage jewelry artist focusing on vintage sterling silver and a collage/paper artist. She calls her work "TouchStones Anecdotal Art (each piece tells a story; perhaps it touches your story)". Kate believes that all art is a vessel of Spirit and designs her classes to honor that belief, creating a safe, non-judgmental environment for all. Kate and her wood-turner husband Andrew live just outside of Saluda in a little cabin in the woods. She is grateful.

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. There is a $5.00 usage fee that will be collected.

About the Class: Who says it isn't written in stone? We will craft a unique, stone-covered mini-book as a pendant for a necklace!

Then we will create the metal binding for the book, which will also be the attachment to a chain. (Metals provided are all of copper; if you want to use another metal, please bring with you.) Basic supplies (stone covers, leather, texts, mica, wire, chain) are provided. Feel free to bring what you might like to use for yourself.

Her "Treasures Re-Covered" series uses antique/vintage book covers fated to the recycle bin into unique handmade journals.

About the Class:  In this playshop, we'll create beautiful ornaments that can be mailed but won't break! Because they're paper. These ornaments are actually pop-up books you can hang on a tree or in a window or gift them (hostess gifts, birthday gifts, etc). Kate will supply all materials for 3 snowflake ornament books. You will leave with the ability to make mini-suns for summer, leaves for autumn, flowers for spring. The only limit is your imagination! Bring your own scissors, please.
Eagerness to play and to learn. Humor is always welcome.

Supplies:  Bring your own scissors; I'll provide everything else.

Artist Bio: Kate Stockman relishes creating and teaching and is happiest when she is doing both at the same time! She is a bookbinder as well as an assemblage jewelry artist and collage/paper artist. She and her wood-turner husband Andrew live outside of Saluda in a little cabin in the woods. She is grateful.

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. There is a $5.00 usage fee that will be collected.
