Friendship Art Club to host Falls Arts and Crafts Show on Oct. 1

Josephine McMann instructs Melanie Means during the August meeting in Lytle.

The Friendship Art Club is having their Fall Arts and Crafts Show on Saturday, October 1 in the Lytle Community Center. This is the first year we have been able to offer creative crafts as well as fine arts. A few booths are still available. If you are an area crafter and are interested, please call Jane Brown, Show Chairman, at 210-415-2546. Show your talent in a comfortable air conditioned environment. Set up starts at 10AM, Friday morning, September 30. Judging starts at 2PM for the art competition and we are asked to complete set up before 2. No tents are necessary and tables will be provided. Fall Shows are just beginning and this is a good opportunity to share your talent.
More than 20 booths will offer a wide variety of creative items for the holidays, in an air conditioned environment. Make a plan to enjoy all the Fall activities offered around our area. We open at 9am and close at 4pm. There will also be food trucks to offer a variety of menus. An extensive raffle benefits our local students with annual scholarships for graduating seniors in Devine, Natalia, Lytle and Somerset. Exhibitors are invited to participate in a judged competition of fine arts and three dimensional art work. The audience votes for the People’s Choice Award given to the audience favorite art work.
Each business meeting provides a program to expand interest and knowledge of a variety of art procedures. The October meeting will be an educational judge’s critique of art work entered in the October 1 competition. Special thanks to area artist, Josephine McMann, who worked with us in August. Her program was how to apply gold leaf to your work for extra sparkle. Her demonstration included actively using the application method. We appreciate her taking the time to share her knowledge.
Please join us any Tuesday morning at the Lytle Church of Christ fellowship room. Many members use this time to learn from each other and to work in a variety of media. If you are interested in participating in the show, please call Jane Brown 210-415-2546, or come by Tuesday morning. We start at 9:30 AM.
