November After School Free Art Classes!!

Register HERE

Jump into creating art this Fall with Columbia Arts! You might remember our Fearless Arts series, where we encouraged locals to try a new art form with local professional artists. We’re bringing this series back with a new spin: they’re all scheduled just after school and meant for students to get their art fill! The classes will take place Thursdays in November 2018 and are open to all ages, on an RSVP basis. Artistic subject matter will vary each week from learning the basics of painting to creating small charms to drawing and shading. Our lovely MeForADay will be teaching these classes!

Schedule

  • November 1,  3:30-5pm: MeForADay- Fundamentals of Drawing
  • November 8, 3:30-5pm: MeForADay- Fundamentals of Drawing

November Exhibition at Windermere

Randy Olson & Melissa Farlow

Husband and wife photographer team Melissa Farlow and Randy Olson bring their stories to the Windermere office for the month of November. Farlow and Olson are photojournalists in the documentary tradition.  Capturing the essence of this exhibition Melissa states, “Randy I paired photographs that were shot on different assignments—many for National Geographic —over the past 25 years. The images took on different meaning when they were paired and sequenced together than they had originally meant—when you consider their intent within a story. Some pairs are opposites. Other comparisons are similar. Some create a visual pun. Having this third effect was a surprise since neither of us particularly photograph with humor.”

This show runs from November 1-18, 2018
