“Gallery Hop 2020” not lost – just different

 

The Arts Commission’s Brass Band Gallery Hop is going virtual – but that’s just the announcement.  All your favorite shops and locations are still supporting the arts and you can too, by browsing safely for days to come.  We will be featuring on Facebook and the events calendar of this website, the shops you know and love, as well as businesses and organizations which support local art through collecting and displaying works in their locations.  So, like, follow and share us on Facebook and check out what makes Danville and Boyle County a special place for art and artists.  The postings will include links or information on how to contact the locations for any specials and up-to-date opening and closing details.

The Arts Commission thanks LGE&KU for support of the 2020 Gallery Hop.

Arts Commission launches YouTube channel

     There is so much to see and learn in and around Danville.  The Arts Commission has launched a YouTube channel to make art available and accessible whenever you need a good dose of creativity and some information.

To access the channel go to YouTube and search for danvillearts.  It’s just that easy.  You will find original videos as well as recordings of workshops sponsored by, and for, the Arts Commission.

Stay tuned as the year progresses, meet some new friends and share some great lessons.

A pretty day in the Park

Historic Constitution Square is the perfect shady spot for a surprise summer concert by the local dulcimer group.

 

Meet Michelle – Future Artist

Meet Michelle.

The Arts Commission couldn’t have in-person camp this summer, so we put camp in boxes for Michelle and her mom  and five other families in their neighborhood.

The whole bunch will be creating a “museum” on the sidewalks and porches to show off their work.

Thanks, David Walden and other community friends for being our partners at “camp” in the crazy summer of 2020.

 

Lynne Pierce Dean

     The Arts Commission is saddened at the loss of Lynne Pierce Dean.  Lynne served the Boyle County community as County Attorney  with integrity and grace.  She was a wonderful mother and wife.  We are very honored to have Lynne serve on the Arts Commission Board twice.  She guided us during our transition years as we relocated our offices out into the community.  When her term as County Attorney was over, she rejoined the Board and continued her service of advising and supporting our work with her legal expertise and care for the goals of providing arts opportunities throughout our community.  Lynne will be missed by so many in all walks of life, and we count ourselves as privileged to have known her.  Our organization was the better for her service and we are grateful for the life she shared with us.

 

Arts Commission programs postponed

The Arts Commission is postponing all events scheduled until April 18th, or until we are advised by the Health Department and our partner organizations that regular programming can be safely resumed.  We encourage all our friends to stay safe and careful.
