The Arts Council will host the Transylvania Art Guild (TAG) Summer Showcase at the Arts Council Gallery beginning Friday, May 24. TAG was organized in 1972 as an association of visual artists in Transylvania County and now has a membership of over 40 area artists.

This year’s showcase will feature 24 area artists. Participating artists include Eric Barron, Peg Bayne, Beryl Bradley, Mary Alice Braukman, Ceylon Canning, J, C.

The artists create work in a variety of media, including pastels, watercolors, acrylics, and mixed media.

All of the artwork in the showcase is eligible for numerous awards. Miriam Hughes, artist and educator located in Hendersonville, will serve as judge of this year’s showcase. In addition to the judge’s awards, the public may vote for the “People’s Choice” award, which will be awarded at the conclusion of the exhibition. Award sponsors for this year’s Showcase include Blue Ridge Bakery, Broad Street Wines, ELEVATE Physical Therapy, Elite Nails, HazChem E.H.S., Inc., High Flying Criminal, Lizards Rock, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Main Street Ltd., Mantiques, Sandra Purcell & Associates Realtors, Theophilus, Transylvania Art Guild, and Wine Down on Main.
