The "Meet the Artists" Opening Reception is on Friday, May 11, from 5 to 8 pm, with music and free refreshments. Attendees will be given the chance to select and vote for their 3 favorite artworks for the Peoples Choice Prize, to be awarded on Sunday. The exhibition is also open Saturday, May 12, from 10-4, and Sunday, May 13th, from 8-2.
This show is at Tellico Village Community Church's Christian Life Center (see directions below). For this special event, the Art Guild transforms the Center into a large gallery space, with the artwork beautifully lit and professionally displayed.
There are several terrific restaurants in the area, if you want to make a night of it on Friday or combine your art viewing with Mother's Day lunch on Sunday. Where you turn onto Ritchey Road, continue straight ahead; on the right is Thai Bistro, then Lorenzo's Mexican Grille (I've heard good reviews of both). If you prefer to continue further west on Hwy. 444, try the Tellico Yacht Club's Blue Heron Restaurant, or - one of our favorites - Tanasi Grille. Further down Hwy 444 to Hwy 321 is Calhoun's Restaurant. Too many good choices.
I hope I'll see you there on Friday evening!
DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 411 in Vonore, TN, take Hwy 72 W to Hwy 444 (the entrance to Tellico Village communities). Follow Hwy 444 for 2.2 miles, then turn onto Ritchey Road, on the left (at the signs for the Community Church, Playhouse and Library). Take the immediate 1st right onto Irene Lane, and follow it to where you see the big Christian Life Center building on the right. There's lots of parking on the left and beyond.
