Garland Eyes Photography Exhibit
The Garland Eyes website tells the stories of Garland one image at a time. All images are of Garland or by a Garlandite or of a Garlandite. Garland Eyes will present a photo exhibit of images from GarlandEyes.com at the Granville Arts Center Gallery August 27-October 19. Garlandites have many views into the city and the world and have captured those views from many perspectives. The images at Garland Eyes are sometimes by professional photographers and sometimes by amateurs with little more than a phone camera, but each has a story to be told. The stories can be powerful while muted, personal while public. They may be edgy or square. Whatever they are, they are our stories. Contributors are encouraged to let the image do the talking. Garland Eyes seeks photos that are on the artistic side that moved the photographer one or two steps beyond his comfort zone, which brings a new perspective to the common view. The Internet is a wonderful medium for sharing these stories but the subtleties are often lost in the pixelized monitors we use for our windows to Garland Eyes. The exhibit will feature images from Garland Eyes but presented in detail that only a larger, fine-printed image can reveal. We walk the same paths as Garlandites but it is rarer that we can see the same views with the same eyes. The Gallery Space of the Granville Arts Center is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and during all performances on weeknights and weekends.
October 22-December 7
Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Exhibit
The Garland Quilt Guild will be displaying quilts at the Granville Arts Center from October 22 through December 7. Members have created quilts of varying sizes, styles, patterns, and colors, from traditional to modern, from large bed quilts to small wall hangings. The quilts on display have been created using a wide range of techniques, including hand and machine quilting, piecing, appliqué, beading, and embellishments. Founded by Barbara Daniel Cissne in March of 2005, the Garland Quilt Guild currently has over 150 members. By recruiting numerous national and local speakers for lectures and workshops, members are inspired through learning new techniques, and also by learning about and developing an appreciation of the history of quilt making. Forming friendships, sharing information about quilting, leaning new techniques, and supporting the community are important parts of the Garland Quilt Guild. You will see how their love of quilting shines through in the display. To find out more about the Guild, visit www.garlandquiltguild.com or www.facebook.com/GarlandQuiltGuild. Art Exhibits at the Granville Arts Center Gallery Space are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday and during all performances.
