Art Guild at Fairfield Glade: Fall Awards Art Show

Just as a colorful outdoor environment is the hallmark of the fall season, the colorful Fall Awards Show is a seasonal hallmark at the Plateau Creative Arts Center (PCAC). You will have an opportunity to view some of the finest artwork that the members of the Art Guild at Fairfield Glade have to offer. To celebrate the Fall Awards Show, the public is invited to the (no-cost) opening reception at the PCAC on Friday, October 3, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. John Conrad and the Show Committee are organizing a substantial selection of hors d’oeuvres and beverages for the event, and music students will provide piano music throughout the evening.

The highlight of the reception will be the announcement of the show’s award winners chosen by art judge Lynne Looney. The artwork entries are divided into nine categories according to media. Winning artwork will be awarded first, second, and third place ribbons within each media category. At the judge’s discretion, “honorable mention” ribbons may also be awarded. The top award will be a special ribbon for the “Best in Show.”

Judge Lynne Looney is a professional artist who worked originally in publishing as an illustrator and commercial designer. Next she added theater and billboard design and production. Since 1992, she has been painting murals and specialty finishes for high end clientele both in Georgia, Texas, and most recently Tennessee. Strong color, bold lines, and expressive brushwork are her trademarks. Many people comment on the large size of the Looney paintings, however her recent work has been scaled down in comparison to the large size of her past projects, many of which were two stories tall or more.

The Fall Awards Show will be on display until Thursday, November 6, at the Plateau Creative Arts Center, 451 Lakeview Drive (off Peavine Road). For more information about the Fall Awards Show or any of the fine art classes and events held at the PCAC, call 931-707-7249. For more information on the Art Guild at Fairfield Glade, visit
