Happening Now…

A High Tea – American Style is scheduled Monday, September 26 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at The Fine Art Center at Cross Pointe.  TFAC will be offering a High Tea and art presentation in our Art Room at the TFAC gallery.  The tea will include finger sandwiches, pastries, and tea, of course.  A fascinating presentation on the great Georgia O’Keefe will be offered by Rina Thau, former president of the gallery and docent at the Dayton Art Institute.  The cost is $25; because the seats are limited, pltease contact the gallery at 937-293-5381 and make your reservation early.  This should be a lovely, Downton Abbey-nostalgic event.

Lyons Place is new apartment building in Dayton for low income and homeless veterans. The Fine Art Center (TFAC) member Lucille Carroll and her husband had visited this new facility and presented TFAC members with the idea of providing Lyons Place some artwork to hang on the new walls. She asked TFAC members for donations and collected 35 pieces of art from the members for Lyons Place. Last Thursday the art works were hung on the walls and the residents were excited to see the beautiful art in their facility. It helped make the three story facility feel a little more like home for the residents. More art will be added in the future. Thanks go to Lucille and TFAC members for helping care for our vets!!
