Townsend Spring Festival & Old Timers Day: May 3-4 Each Spring …
Coming soon to Monroe County is an inaugural event you will not want to miss — Art on the Square!
This two-day art extravaganza will feature fine art, crafts and jewelry for both show and sale in the Historic Town Square of Tellico Plains. Come on down September 12th and 13th from 10am to 5pm and discover the talents of local Monroe County artists…and even a few pieces from those beyond our fair county.
Art on the Square will provide artists with a venue to showcase their work and make their pieces accessible to those who wish to purchase and support art in the area. Works on display will include paintings, wood turnings, pottery and sculpture — there will surely be a little of something for everyone!
In addition to featuring the talents of our local artists, there will also be music, children’s art activities and a student art display. Be sure to check out the hospitality booth, as well, for information regarding the artists and for coupons and/or special events the Tellico Plains merchants may be having in conjunction with the art show.
This event is sponsored by the Tellico Plains Outreach Committee and Artists Association of Monroe County (AAMC). The purpose of the AAMC is to promote artistic development and growth of visual fine artists in Monroe County and surrounding areas and to further support and encourage creativity and appreciation of and patronage of visual arts through educational programs such as lectures, tours, workshops, classes and exhibits. Membership is open to anyone in Monroe County or the surrounding areas who possesses a sincere interest in promoting the arts. The group meets at 6:30 on the second Thursday of every month.
