Feb. 14 begins ‘Joy’ art exhibit at TC Arts Council

Colorful paintings, furniture, crafts, sculptures and drawings by TVS ‘No Limits’ artists will fill the Transylvania Community Arts Council building from Feb. 14 until Feb. 28. The joyful exhibition simply titled, “Joy” begins with an opening reception on Feb. 14 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

TVS ‘No Limits’ artists are not only showing their work, they are also performing different songs in sign language during the opening reception. The sign language performances are known around the area, it is an extraordinary way to express emotions in a nonverbal approach that aims to leave the audience with a feeling of inspiration.
Cookies and brownies made by the ‘No Limits’ culinary club will be served during the reception.

By creating art, individuals are able to convey personal expressions and serve as an inspiration to others.

For over 10 years, the ‘No Limits’ artists have had their own show hosted by the TC Arts Council. This will be the second time in 2020 that the artists artwork will be featured at the Arts Council building. The first time was in January for the “Faces of Freedom” exhibit.

This event serves as one of the groups largest shows and is really the beginning point of a busy year of exhibits for the artists.

The TC Arts Council is located at 349 S. Caldwell St in Brevard. The artists hope to see you there!

“Free Spirit” artwork returns home to TVS

“Free Spirit” artwork returns home to TVS

Brevard, NC (November 18, 2019) – Every year the Free Rein Gala offers an opportunity for community members to participate in a silent and live auction. This year, TVS Life Skills participants created and donated “Free Spirit,” a mixed media piece of artwork. This beautifully crafted horse painting now carries a heartwarming journey.

“Free Spirit” was inspired by the fun and freedom that Free Rein provides for the TVS participants. The horse was created with different elements that relates to the experiences. The sand is representing the dusty ground, corn as a horse snack, and the feathers representing the outdoors and the feeling of flying that is experienced while riding the horses.

Each aspect of the artwork is thoughtful and expressive. “Our TVS participants greatly look forward to Free Rein each session,” said Life Skills Supervisor Suzanne Byers. “Free Rein allows us to challenge ourselves, overcome obstacles, and meet goals that everyday life experiences might not provide us the opportunity to do.”
