We're Making a Little Art Noise

Gail Vail and Cathy McIntire
This week a torch has been passed.

The art column that Anne Jenkins so wonderfully wrote for several years is now being written by Gail Vail and Cathy McIntire, artists with our gallery. Anne has moved from the area, so Gail and Cathy decided to accept the challenge of this column, to be published in both the Lake Oconee News and Greensboro's Herald Journal.

The new name for the column is ART NOISE, and these two artist/reporters plan to bring the phrase to life.

Gail and Cathy both have experience in writing and publishing about art in general, and Art of Oconee in particular. Gail has written several newspaper and magazine articles, not only for the gallery, but many organizations. She also is editor and publisher for the book, Seasons On Lake Oconee, a popular book that features the writing and art of  Lake Ocone area artists and writers. Cathy is responsible for computer oriented projects for the gallery, including our blog, emails to customers and supporters, and our Facebook page. She also does her fair share of writing for her own artist blog. Both are accomplished artists whose work can always be seen at the gallery.

The first column is scheduled for this week's edition of both papers!

More later...
