TAC Auxiliary to offer cards featuring deceased Troy artists
The Troy Arts Council Auxiliary’s latest project is hot off the “press” and ready to package.
Although the TAC Auxiliary’s note card collection won’t be available for purchase until TroyFest April 27 and 28, Susan Berry said that, just the promise of it, is generating a lot of interest.
“The note cards will feature the artwork of six deceased Troy artists,” Berry said. “The reason for our doing the note cards is that there will be an exhibition of artwork by deceased Troy artists at the Johnson Center for the Arts later in the year.
“The TAC Auxiliary is always looking for ways to raise funds for the Troy Arts Council and that upcoming show inspired us to do the note cards featuring deceased artists, Jane Brantley, Roxie Dunbar, Sarah Johnson, Jean Lake, Marsha Rice and Alice Thornton.”
Berry said the note cards are for every occasion.
“Some are more masculine, like Marsha Rice’s elephant, while others, like Roxie Dunbar’s irises are more feminine. The note card collection also includes Alice Thornton’s spinning wheel, Jane Brantley’s cane mill, Jean Lake’s tenant house and Sarah Johnson’s old swimming hole.”
There are no printed messages on the cards.
“You give the note cards your own personal touch by saying what you want to say and how you want to say it,” Berry said. “These note cards will be treasured because they are by Troy artists and depict things that are so dear to us.”
The Troy Arts Council Auxiliary’s note card collection is packaged six to a pack and will be sold for $10.
The note cards will be on sale, for the first time, at the TAC table at TroyFest 2013 in downtown Troy.
