Ready to Show its Colors | Highlands Cashiers Art League
The Art League of Highlands-Cashiers has drawn upon its deep pools of creativity to bring color and texture and energy back to the Plateau.
The Art League of Highlands-Cashiers looks forward to 2021. Our hope is that its activities will be able to return in large part to what they were before the pandemic cancelled its 2020 season.
We are delighted that we have been able to contribute in a small way to the success of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau Covid-19 Vaccination Initiative by loaning the group our display screens to provide privacy for vaccination stations. We’re all eager for things to return to normal.
The board has continued to meet via Zoom, and recently announced its 2021 schedule to ALHC members. Seven monthly meetings at The Bascom are planned with guest speakers, beginning in April and continuing through October. Those dates are April 26, May 24, June 28, July 26, August 30, September 27, and October 25.
This year, three shows are planned. The Summer Colors Fine Art Show is scheduled for July 24-25 at the Sapphire Valley Community Center. The Fall Colors Fine Art Show is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Highlands Rec Park. A Small Works Show has been added this year for November 26-27 at the Sapphire Valley Community Center.
We once again plan to sponsor the Summer Art Camp for area youth at the Highlands Rec Park. The dates for the camp are dependent on the date the school year ends.
On August 19, ALHC will sponsor the Highlands Chamber of Commerce’s After Hours event at Studio 106 on the Dillard Road.
Of course, this schedule is dependent on North Carolina directives and the venue rules that are in effect on the planned dates.
