This time every year, We all reflect on the closing of one year and the prospects of a brand new one. This year is no different and the Art District is not excluded from 2022 reflections.
Although 210 W. Bluff had to reduce scheduled days and hours for the Gallery, our wonderful regular docent volunteers and substitutes kept the gallery open. CSI’s troop kept the heart and energy flowing with their hand-painted seasonal bags, art challenges, etc. Lisa and Sylvia began updating the TCAL newsletters, Facebook and webpage.
Devoted visual art supporters and artists continued to renew their memberships and new members were excited to join our art world. We had inspiring monthly programs. And our themed Art Shows showcased the outstanding talents of area artists.
On a more personal note, 2022 found me in a weird, non-mobile state. For the first time since TCAL’s incorporation in 2002, I had to literally “let go” when it came to being hands-on in the Art District, In the long run, I was blessed to be given the time to reflect on the mission and goals established 20 years ago. Looking forward to 2023, I am eager to be more productive as I “unleash the artist with-in me“.
The new year before us is the perfect time for rejuvenation of opportunities to explore new artistic techniques through expanded classes for all age groups, workshops, demonstrations, etc. And for re-implementing opportunities for observing Artists @ Work and Pop-up stations for the public to explore art. We have so many new ideas to explore!
Get ready for a new, exciting chapter for TCAL and the Art District .
Let’s open our wish lists for the coming year as we
