"Fall into the Arts"
Come celebrate the Fall with Art On the Divide
Student Art Exhibit at AODC
Golden Sierra High School artwork by high school students is being shown at Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery in Georgetown October 4th through November 2019. The reception is Sunday, Oct. 27th from 1 to 4 p.m. where students will be greeting attendees. Shown are various ceramics, drawings, paintings and photography by a few of the school's talented art students. Mrs. Erica Phillips has been the art instructor at GSHS since 2016. She is an artist and became an art teacher to inspire and share her knowledge, techniques and love of the arts. Phillips says the best part of teaching has been watching each student's growth from beginning to end when they realize they can create art and enjoy it.
HALLOWEEN AT THE GALLERY
Thursday, October 31st starting at 4 pm
Hand-Crafted “Seed” Cards
at AODC Gallery
Perfect greeting card or "Thank You" gift. AODC artists have artfully hand-crafted paper with embedded flower seeds. We send a big “thank you” to local artist Patricia McKinney for her instruction on this project.
Yes…these cards are biodegradable and after the recipient enjoys your personal message, they can be planted. Just cover the card with some soil, water and watch it bloom.
Not only are the cards beautiful to look at, your purchase will benefit the DFAHS/AODC Art Scholarship fund. DFAHS supports one or two fundraisers, such as this, each year to add to the scholarship fund.

Heritage Rose Pruning Workshop....SUCCESS
Master Gardener, Mary Hobblit, led a Rose Pruning Workshop on Friday, March 29th. We are so thankful for her guidance and expertise in helping us to properly prune the heritage roses that grace the "Gallery Garden". The blooms will continue through most of the summer. If you haven't visited before, the garden is directly behind the gallery.
With the help of many volunteers, many of them rose experts as well, the one hundred roses have been pruned for the season. THANK YOU
