One of the unique things about Arts & Ales is demonstrations by local artists. As you sample the dozens of craft beers, listen to the bands, and shop for original art, you can also watch as artists create their work; in some cases, you can even help. On March 9, at Monterey Station in Cowan, TN, you can meet the Fairies of Lullymore.
The Fairies of Lullymore are the creation of Winchester artist Frances Perea. Come meet these enchanting fairies from Lullymore, County Kildare, Ireland and find out how they came to live in America. They are currently are boarding at the Artisan Depot Gallery, 204 E. Cumberland Street, Cowan, TN, and are seeking forever homes.
Frances will be offering Arts & Ales attendees an opportunity to make fairie artist trading cards as part of the "mob art" activity, with all materials provided. Also, Artisan Depot gallery member Margie Gallagher will be creating a blue tape "mob art" tree and participants who make the artist trading cards will have an opportunity to show them off by pinning them to the “tree.” Margie will also be demonstrating how to make fairy houses from natural materials and Pat Richards will demonstrate how she creates fairy logs.
This year's Arts & Ales is sure to be a magical event. Don't miss it. Reserve your tickets today. Your good time will make possible the scholarship program of the Franklin County Arts Guild, as well as other arts activities in and around the community.
