CTAC to host Teacher & Faculty Show, Exhibit
DUNCAN Part of the mission of the Chisholm Trail Arts Council (CTAC) is to promote the arts in creative ways. After all, Darcy Reeves noted, the arts and creative promotion is a symbiotic relationship.
"Members of the art gallery planning committee and I are continuously looking for projects that will help the arts thrive in the area and beyond," said Reeves, who is in a fifth year as CTAC's executive director.
During a meeting last year, Melissa Mayo approached Reeves and members of the committee with an interesting program idea that would be a new twist in promoting the council and its activities. Mayo has since left the board, but the concept she presented will be on display Saturday when CTAC hosts its first Teacher & Faculty Art Show and Exhibit.
"Melissa came up with the idea of recognizing people who are or have been art teachers in area school districts, along with educators who are also artistic," Reeves said. "Melissa had to drop off the board for family reasons, but the members of the planning committee thought it would be a good project, and they approved it as one of our 2017-18 events.
"When we first opened the art gallery in 2014, activities like this were what we hoped would help us in our mission of promoting the arts.
"We hope people will come join us for an evening of art, appetizers and wine at the CTAC Art Gallery."
