Sunday, July 13, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
20 years of the Artists League of the Sandhills as seen through the eyes of the current and past presidents.
The Artists League of the Sandhills is a strong art organization of over 135 members that share a common bond – ART – and it is more than just an appreciation. For many, creative fine arts have long been a big part of their lives and for others it is just the beginning.
Twenty years ago, the two founders of the League, Chuck Lunney and Mike D’Andrea searched for a place where they could join with other artists and pursue their love of art. The old train warehouse building in Historic Aberdeen needed a “little” work, but with the recruitment and help of other artists, Ann Campbell, Virginia Cowden, Charlotte Gaddy, Sara Gray, Betty Hendrix, Ann Marie Parker, Sarah Simpson, Fred Stone and Sheila Sullivan and a lot of hard work, their dream became a reality.
Past Presidents include: Chuck Lunney (1994-1996), Fred Stone (1996-1998), Betty Hendrix( 1998-1999), Sara Simpson (1999-2000), Nancy Yanchus (2000-2001), Janet Burdick (2001-2002), Joan Williams (2002-2003), Mike D’Andrea (2003-2005), Courtney Herndon (2005-2006), Deane Billings (2006-2007), Hugh Harris (2007-2008), Annette Martin (2009), Nancy Yanchus (2010) KC Sorvari (2011), Linda Bruening (2012), Pat Halligan (2013) and currently, Jan Garber (2014).
Please join these Presidents and all the other members of the Artists League of the Sandhills as they celebrate their “Reflective” exhibit of the past twenty years on Sunday, July 13, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. The current Community Outreach Projects will also be on display and include, “Be Smart with Art” at Aberdeen Elementary School, Cancer Art Therapy, and First Health Cancer Infusion Center Ceiling Tiles.
