This year Sharptop Arts Association is proud to announce our 3rd Annual Feathered Event to be held on May 19 at our own Sharptop Arts Center on D.B. Carroll Street behind the Old Jail. Come by the Center this month on Thursdays and Fridays from noon-4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. to view the 60 innovative and original creations that were donated to SAA by local artisans for this event.
Many of the birdhouses are functional garden art that will serve well as a focal point in your yard and other works of art can be beautifully displayed indoors or on a covered patio. This year’s birdhouse entries include “The Old Jail Birdhouse” and “The Woodbridge Birdhouse” (functional birdhouses that duplicate those landmarks in downtown Jasper) by local artist Dee Anne Boggus. The $10 ticket cost covers entry to the event, a meal, entertainment and an art raffle, providing a fun evening for very little money spent.
Kyle Waters is again in charge of the Birdhouse Auction which will begin promptly after the awards presentation at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 19. (The Art Gallery will also open that day from 4-6 p.m. for early viewing of the birdhouses and other artworks, as well as our Member Gallery, which has original art for sale year-round.) Sharptop Arts Association is a non-profit organization created to stimulate and encourage art appreciation and development of the arts and crafts. Through classes, workshops, exhibits and cultural events, the Association strives to provide a balanced program of art opportunities for all the people of Pickens County and the extended community. The Association functions with an entirely volunteer effort. We are guided by a Board of Directors and an active network of committees focusing on different aspects of the Association. We are very excited about the future direction of the Association and hope you will join us in our enthusiasm and consider being a part of the process. We welcome your creativity and support and hope you will become an active member (join us through www.sharptopartsassociation.org).
