AMAZING -- IT'S ANOTHER NEW YEAR!  Here
we are  -- are we doing the same old thing, or are we
trying something new?  To each his own, just stay
creative.  We have a new "brand" for Columbus:  
"We do amazing!"  You will see it around.  We in
the visual arts have a new mantra too -- "Let's keep
visual arts visible!"  That statement is not as easy
as it sounds -- let's see what we can do about that!

A WORD ABOUT THE AWARDS:
Two special awards were added to Arts on the River recently ..... One in memory of Charles Davis,
husband and helper of Geri Davis, and the other in memory of LTC (Ret) Mike Tryon, husband and
helper of Lois Tryon.  The funds for these awards were donated by the families.  Charles' award was
designated for a watercolor artist, and was awarded to Ron Lewis of Birmingham.  Mike's award was
decided by Lois, as a painting or sculpture that Mike, who was a tough customer, would have really
liked.  This year it was presented to Betty Jean McLendon of  Columbus.  Charles and Mike were a
part of the art shows and other events for many years, even though they were not artists themselves,
and are sorely missed.

A LITTLE STORY ......
   This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody
and Nobody.  There was an important job to be done and Everybody was
sure that Somebody would do it.  Anybody could have done it, but Nobody
did it.  Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody  thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that
Everybody wouldn't do it.  It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody
when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

                   
DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

Bucky Bowles will be one of thirteen
Georgia wildlife artists in an exhibition at the
Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville,
Georgia from Jan 9 through March 11, 2018.
Donna Peters is retiring from doing shows and will have to
sell her"show truck".  
It is a 2006 Ford E-350 "box van" which has shelves made
for holding my canopy, screens and loads of art. Perfect for
being able to pull out what you need without unloading the
entire load.  The right vehicle makes doing shows so much
easier.  $5,000. For more information  call Donna Peters at
256-747-4141 or e-mail at
