The Locally Grown Gallery, home to 39 regional artists, will be hosting events from 5:30-9 p.m. in their gallery and studio as part of a new Third Friday.
The Locally Grown Gallery is located behind the Soup Kitchen in Greenwich Village Mall in historic Jackson Square.
The inaugural Locally Grown Gallery Third Friday event will be August 21. Weaver Andy Lyle and author B.J. Gillum will be the featured artists.
Lyle is an Oak Ridge native and member of the Foothills Craft Guild. She will be demonstrating on her large loom as well as teaching easy beginner projects. She will have small loom kits and fiber available for purchase.
Gillum is the author of seven novels and founder of the Roane Writer’s Group, which sponsors an annual young writers’ contest for Roane County students and publishes winning entires in a beautiful anthology titled “Reflections.” Gillum will have signed copies of his latest novel, titled “Forget Me Not,” as well as the 2014 edition of “Reflections” for sale. A talented amateur vintner, Gillum is providing wine for tasting.
“Please join us at Locally Grown Gallery for wine and cheese, craft demonstrations, book signing, and good company on the third Friday of every month,” a press release said.
Other Oak Ridge Third Friday participants include Continuous Threads Sewing Studio and the Oak Ridge Art Center.
