The Artisan Depot in Cowan is beginning a series of paint-and-sip nights in the gallery. The first two sessions are Tuesday, November 13 and Tuesday, December 11; both are from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. The workshops will be led by artist Carolyn Evey, who is locally well-known for her popular Mountain Painting Parties in Tracy City. Everyone from beginning painters to professional artists are invited to participate; pre-registration is required.
At the November 13 event, participants will paint trees in their fall colors; easels, acrylic paints, and 11 x 14 canvases are included with the $30 registration fee; click here to register. Participants may bring their favorite wine or beer; water and iced tea will be available. The gallery will also provide light snacks.
Carolyn Evey has taught elementary art in the public school system and for homeschool tutorials. For more than 15 years, she has created original home portraits in pen and ink for realtors and clients in the Nashville/Brentwood area. Since moving in 2017 to Monteagle Mountain, she began instructing Mountain Painting Parties on a regular basis, in and around Tracy City. She says, "It is a privilege to be involved in the community, encouraging creativity and providing artistic inspiration for participants, even those who may have never before held a paintbrush to canvas!"
The Artisan Depot is the gallery and gift shop of the Franklin County Arts Guild and is located at 204 Cumberland Street E in Cowan, Tennessee. Questions? Call workshop coordinator Kim Phillips at 615-829-0772.
