White River Sound Chorus + HCAA Update

We love to sing the praises and celebrate the accomplishments of any groups that promote local arts and artists. Our official partner groups are each doing a wonderful job of building community around the arts in our region. Here’s the scoop on two this winter!

Hatching 2016 Plans at HCAA

We're dreaming of warm weather and the return of HCAA's annual Gathering of Plein Air Painters.

We’re dreaming of warm weather and the return of HCAA’s annual Gathering of Plein Air Painters.

Don’t go knocking on the door of the Birdie Gallery in January and February. It’s closed. But that doesn’t mean the Hamilton County Artists’ Association’s juried members aren’t hard at work. In fact, they are spending these cold winter months preparing for a year of outstanding gallery shows, art events and classes.

The HCAA’s five-year strategic plan — a roadmap through 2020 — will lead the organization to expand and sustain its mission to provide artistic development, fellowship and art appreciation to its members and the Hamilton County community. The HCAA reports that 2015 was a resounding success with new gallery shows, numerous new community exhibits and dynamic art classes with local and nationally known artists.

Stay tuned for announcements regarding HCAA’s 2016 opportunities to view, buy and learn about the visual arts! Visit hcaa-in.org.
