Founded by a local group of artists and chartered in 1966, the Murfreesboro Art League is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to develop and maintain a vibrant artistic environment in the Rutherford/ Murfreesboro community. The Murfreesboro Art League offers classes in many disciplines for artists of all levels and has a gallery located in the back of Cannonsburgh Village.
classes: Most of September will be “open studio” nights. Bring your own
project and work on it. If you are still working on the things from the
abstract class, this is a good time to FINISH it. Don’t leave it lying around
half done for a year! (not that I have EVER done that – lol!!)
We will have one drawing class on Sept. 22. Does
anyone have any requests? If not, we will discuss types of shading to make
things look more 3 dimensional.
Artists of the Month: This month, we are starting something new! In
addition to our artist of the month who shows over at the Linebaugh Library, we
will also have a special wall to highlight one of our own. This month, the
Linebaugh artist of the month is Marilyn Brisbois. The featured artist at our
gallery will be Bobbie Bittner. This will be a great way to showcase the
gallery in local media. Speaking of this, do we have someone who is good at
writing articles? We’d love to have a PR person!!
the Autumn season is upon us, it is time to switch over our paintings at the gallery.
Each person is encouraged to bring between 1 and 5 or 6 pieces, preferably Fall
or Winter themed, still lifes or abstracts. (This is not set in stone, just
some ideas!) Please bring your paintings on one of the first 2 Monday nights
during our open studio time.(Sept 1 or 8)
Showing your art – Here’s an extra opportunity to show your art! The Mayday
Brewery (just up the street) will be having art shows now. The next one is Vintage
Circus - Oct 2 - Nov 6– Submissions due Sept 25!
If you are interested in submitting for any of these shows -
please contact Dawna at email@example.com for more
should be sent at least one week prior to when the show is to be hung.
We will not be doing the Center for the Arts this fall. They are
going with a new format and want it to be more individual shows. I’m sure if
you have plenty of art, you are welcome to contact them to exhibit there
