"Broads Go To The Dogs!" Artist Reception Set For Oct. 24 At First Christian Church

Saturday, October 5, 2019

The recent collaboration between Broad Stroke Artists, First Christian Church, and JUMPST/ART kicks off with a Meet the Artists Reception in the Palette to Table Gallery at First Christian Church on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 5-8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

The theme, “Broads go to the Dogs,” was pegged as the event title since a portion of each fine art sale at this show will benefit McKamey Animal Center. During the Oct. 24 event, guests will have a chance to meet several adorable, adoptable “tail-wagers” – that are looking for a forever home.

Broad Stroke Artists is a collaborative between six professional, local, women artists. The paths of Vicky Styons, Lorraine Perkins, Kathleen Pacenti, Faye Ives, Lupina Poi Haney and Janice Kennedy had crossed in mutual organizations and art classes. They really came to know each other when they began attending open studio together at Art Creations. In this weekly gathering they realized they had much in common and relished the artistic feedback. A bond developed and they decided to try their hand at exhibiting together. Their first show was in 2018 and there has been no slowdown in their momentum. 

Although quite diverse in their approach to art by their individual styles, they have been well received in the art community for the cohesiveness and harmony of their shows. They are prolific artists who have a passion for their art, which shows in each piece. They continue to meet weekly and encourage each other in their continued artistic growth. 

Gail Rich, owner of JUMPST/ART, and the show’s curator, will begin setting up “Broads go to the Dogs” this week with plans for a public preview starting Oct. 13. Preview hours will be Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment, or drop-ins on Sundays from 9 a.m. to noon. 

This is the second of two annual exhibits at First Christian to benefit a local charity.

Located at 650 McCallie Avenue, across from UTC, all are welcome at First Christian Church: Seeking God’s Wholeness. Expanding the Table. Nurturing Justice.
