For The Vista
Michael and Patty Albin have been selected to participate in the 2012 TACA Biennial presented by the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists.
Michael, whose takes many photos for The Vista, and Patty will represent Fairfield Glade in The Best of Tennessee Craft: The 2012 TACA Biennial opening Friday, August 24, at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville.
The Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA) presents the juried exhibition to provide public visibility and recognition for the quality and diversity of craft found throughout the state.
TACA’s Executive Director, Teri Alea, stated, “Every biennial is an opportunity to spotlight not only the best Tennessee craft, but a unique part of our culture. By nourishing artists’ passion and honoring their work, TACA will showcase the living legacy of Tennessee craft.” As one of 64 artists selected to participate in the prestigious show, the Albins masterfully contributes to this legacy.
You can visit the exhibition to see the Albin’s work entitled “Field of Flowers” a photograph in the center with a hand painted frame to match. The Albins make their living traveling around the country and selling their art at fine art shows in such cities as Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta and Kansas City to name a few.
They participate in about 20 art shows a year and moved to Fairfield Glade three years ago because of it‘s central location and great amenities. The Albin’s work will appear alongside TACA’s private collection featuring the work of master artists, Akira Blount, Olen Bryant,
Sylvia Hyman, and Newberry & Sons. The highly-anticipated show will be open to the public from August 24 to October 21, 2012 (open Tuesday-Sunday). Join TACA, TSM, and the Girl Scouts for a family-friendly event, “Celebrating Tennessee Craft” on Saturday, August 25. Visitors of all ages will the craft demonstrations.
