Tri-State Arts Association Exhibition 2014

TSAA Exhibition 2014 opened their exhibit Sunday September 7th with a reception and the presentation of awards.

The display of all the various pieces of art was beautiful and I was told that many pieces not chosen for Exhibit were just as beautiful, making it harder on judges to pick the ones to display and compete. The Huntington Museum of Art was filled from Wall to Wall. Thanks to all for giving the area something we can be proud of you’ve done well.

One thing, there is always room for volunteers. It takes a lot of nibbles to snack on for a show this size. And many to work the show. The Museum is a showcase for the area. TSAA needs to put our best foot forward when we have the opportunity. 

Honrable Mention: Michael Adkins- Church and State , Brenda Beatty - Stephen, Jane Cooper - Pretty Peppers, Rabert Fulks - Potted Plants, Kenna Kelly - Salt of the Earth, Mark Tobin Moore - Recycled in West Virginia: Hostage, Reginia Swim - Summer Fire , Elisabeth Turner- Erosive Inception, Valerie Windhorst - Charade

Merit Award: James Biggs - Untitled Steel#21, Pat Chapman - Mermaid Loves Butterfly, Maurice Mufson, Some Aspire, Some Admire. Chuck Ripper - Saw Whet Owl, Joe Sartor - Daily Bread . Ann Grimes - Colors of Spring. Vernon Howell - Guardian of the Passage, Amy Harper - Composite Dreams. Ron Haeberle - Williams River V. Nicole Suptic, Coy

Area Art Shows

Renaissance Art Gallery will be holding its National Miniature show through November and part of December. More on that as time grows closer. TSAA’s Art in the Park Date: October 11-12, Will be held at Ritter Park. No Rain date for this event. 

My Newsletter Volunteers have been Great to work With

As the years have gone by TSAA has grown both by membership and how we do things. Meetings were rarely held. Maybe three a year, with the board meeting an hour before the General meeting. A newsletter became more important, from two or three a year to six a year. As our numbers grew more than one person was needed to get it out there. The last few years I have relied on Linda Helgason in helping me getting them printed stamped, addressed and mailed. Linda can no longer assist me. I want to thank her for the many years she has worked on the newsletter and Linda Clifford for stepping in last year while Linda Helgason recovered from an injury and Katie Welsh for stepping into the position Linda Helgason has decided to give up. Thanks to all.

Special Awards for Local Entrants of Renaissance Miniature Show

Walk-in artists for this year’s 14th Annual National Miniature Exhibition will be eligible for an additional award, entry in the Renaissance Art Gallery’s spring members show. Local award winner(s) will be invited to participate in an additional Fine art show by entering two works of their choosing. Our Juror, Edward E. Pauley, Director of Kennedy Museum of Art at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio will choose 3 pieces of miniature work from our local entrants. These awards will be announced at the opening reception of the miniature show, November 2, 2014 at the Renaissance Art Gallery.

Artist’s interested in entering the Miniature exhibition can pick up a prospectus at the gallery during Studio or Open hours or download the prospectus on the Miniature Show page.
