Princess and Pirate art exhibit

The Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit is this Sunday


Yes, it's finally here. The Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit will be happening this Sunday as part of the Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center's fundraising event; The Princess and Pirate Tea Party. There will be several pieces from artists Greg Ruth and Charles Vess on display and for sale, along with signed books and prints. A portion of the sales will go to benefit the BRSHC (a 501(c)3 organization) and help them meet their service goals for the year.

I know that a lot of you may be interested in attending and helping support the cause, but you may live too far away. Don't worry! All of the pieces that are still available after the event will be made available for sale online in the Out of Step Arts store. And if any of the pieces are still left by the time Spectrum LIVE! rolls around, I'll bring them with me and you can purchase them there (booth # 903).

So, I hope to see you on Sunday at the Bristol Train Station. There's lots of fun to be had, lots of funds to be raised, and lots of great art to be seen.

Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit

I am happy to announce that Out of Step Arts will be sponsoring and coordinating a gallery exhibit featuring artwork from our own Greg Ruth and Master Illustrator Charles Vess.  The exhibit will benefit the Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center as part of their Princess and Pirate Tea Party fundraising event on April 22nd in Bristol, VA. Greg Ruth and Charles Vess are both multiple award winning artist whose work has graced the pages of numerous publications and has been exhibited in galleries around the world.  For this exhibit, Greg will be displaying some of the original illustrations from the children's book "A Pirate's Guide to First Grade" (written by James Preller). These illustrations have also been exhibited at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and at The Society of Illustrators' Museum of American Illustration.  Charles will be displaying several fantastic works featuring his delightful fairy tale theme, for which he is so well known.  There will be opportunities to purchase art, books and prints at the exhibit, so stay tuned for the details to come.

They provide hearing and speech related services to all ages of people who have communicative disorders across the rural Appalachian areas of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.
