|“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great GatsbyThis week marked the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the official start to the season. It can in fact feel like life begins again with summer. The creative juices are flowing, the days are long, and there is an endless list of activities to get to.
Here at TWAA, we’ve got lots of summer-related info in this newsletter, including a call for artists for our second annual TWAA Art Walk (scroll down if you are interested in submitting work) and a listing of art events throughout the region for the summer months.
Even if you are not an artist, get the TWAA Art Walk on your calendar! It’s taking place on August 3, 2016 from 5 to 8 p.m. Not only will there be several different venues featuring art from local artists, there will also be plenty of drinks and food, so be sure that it’s on your calendar!
Since the school year has wrapped up, we have had some great feedback from students and parents. “Art has been the highlight of Evie’s year this year!” wrote one. Nothing makes us happier than knowing that we are bringing more art into the community, and that is thanks to the continued support of our members and volunteers. Speaking of membership, if you are not already a member (or know someone who wants to be a member) you can easily become a member by clicking here.
You still have a little more time to catch this month’s featured artist at Blend Wine Shop: Barb Bourscheidt. Stop by for a glass of wine and check out Barb’s beautiful clay creations. For July, the featured artist will be Molly Duttry.
Whether you’re an artist or a supporter of the arts, we thank you for being a part of Two Waters. We hope that you enjoy these new summer days!
