Connestee Art League


 

About Us:

The Art League of Connestee Falls is an organization where the community's many talented visual artists can join together, learn, and add to the community at large.  It is a non-profit organization..

The Art League is one of the most active resident organizations and their events are a source of fun, excitement, and talent. A visit to the Overlook Clubhouse offers an ongoing opportunity to see works by artist members with a variety of pieces displayed throughout the lobby and other rooms.  During the year they offer demonstrations and workshops by well known artists. They also stage art exhibits and events.

“Throughout the year members participate in a number of activities in order to display their work and to raise money for charitable donations,” says Sandy Hemmer, Art League President.  “We make donations to the Transylvania Council of the Arts working with children, and The Boys and Girls Club for art supplies.”

Their annual showing “Art in the Park” held every summer is where the members and their works take center stage at the Connestee Falls along Greenville Highway near the main entrance of the community.

The Connestee Falls Reflections Blog is introducing a new Artist Spotlight series. Resident artists and photos of their works will be featured on a regular basis.  Look for more about art at Connestee Falls on links below:
