2016 Annual Tennessee Craft Midstate Exhibit
At Centennial Art Center
“Stretching the Boundaries”
July 29th– September 23rd,
This will be an exhibit that will honor our local artists and encourage them to stretch their creativity through one or more new works. This will challenge the artist to grow in vision, form, or possibly even explore a new medium that moves beyond a boundary they we once found comfortable. This could be a great, healthy challenge for all of us to stretch our boundaries.
July 29th Opening reception from 5-7 pm
The opening reception will be a light beverage and food affair supplied by the exhibiting artists, open to the public.
September 23rd Closing Reception from 6-9 pm
The closing reception will be a large reception open to the public. We will also invite the artists from the Tennessee Craft Fall Fair to attend after their first day of the Fall Fair. As history tells us, this should be a very fun night for all; artist, art lovers and friends.
We can celebrate for both, the ending of an inspiring Tennessee Craft Exhibit, and the first kick-off day for the Tennessee Fall Fair.
