“A Place for Art; The Art of Place – Covington 200”
STAA presents an exhibit commemorating the Bicentennial Celebration for the City of Covington. Eleven artists have been selected to participate based on quality of work and their interpretation of Covington. Each weekend during the exhibition, an event showcasing Covington’s history and culture will take place. Opening night is dedicated to artists with a special bicentennial flavor. Anticipation is high, and the event includes special guests and fanfare. During the month of March, look for a Literary flash event, a Sunday afternoon historical story-telling (including unknown facts about the founder of the STAA), and topping it all off, an evening honoring our indigenous founders with a performance by Grayhawk Perkins and his band.

“Cloud Nine: A New Series by Harriet Blum”
Cloud Nine is inspired by the artist’s creative response to the ever changing and vast cloudscapes.

The images draw in the viewer allowing them to appreciate the visual feast provided by nature unhindered by landmarks. Enjoy a chance to see through the artist’s eyes as she shows us there are opportunities everywhere for inspiration, and sometimes you just have to look up!
Cloud Nine is on display through April 9.
