Greensburg Arts Council March meeting review

By Diane Hall

The Greensburg Arts Council met on March 9, 2023 for their monthly meeting at 10amCT upstairs at Longhunters Coffee on the Square.

Upcoming events in the works means a whirlwind (the good kind) of activities for Green County. April 1st will be the first meeting of the Children's Art Club. Held on the 1st Saturday of each month from 10AM-Noon at the Depot, this meeting will give school age children a chance to make art, share their art projects or even get help with their art. Each month will have a themed craft such as Easter and Earth Day for April, Derby, Mother's Day for May, Father's Day and the Family Tree for June, for example.

This is a free activity meeting at the Depot and led by local artist, Karen Roland. All are welcome. There will be more details on our Facebook page and the week before the event.

There will be $500 Memorial Scholarship presented annually by GAC to a graduating student pursuing higher education. The deadline of April 11th is fast approaching and details are available on our Facebook page or from your Green County High School Counselor.

Also in the works is an historical portrayal of Elijah Creel by Richard Phelps. This event is scheduled for Friday, April 14th, with more details to come closer to the event on our FB page.

Attention to all our local photographers, GAC will be offering a photography county-wide contest this year. Winning photographs will be published in our upcoming calendar for 2024 to raise funds for our many projects that serve the people of Green County by enhancing their quality of life through experiencing the arts that connect us all. There are so many beautiful scenes all around our county to inspire.

Green County Arts Council would like to thank the FFA for partnering with us on the Heritage Garden and look forward to the beautiful blooms and landscaping that will offer a peaceful respite in downtown Greensburg.

There will be an Historic Homes Tour in and around Greensburg in June with 4-5 homes/venues in the works. Tour hours will range from 11AM-4PM and cost will be $20 per couple or $15 per person so bring a friend and save! More details later!

A few other activities in the works are a Jane Todd Crawford Play, a Fall Tea, a Green County-wide Art Show at Lindsey Wilson College in the Spring, a new Arts Council Logo, a new Christmas Ornament Design and a website. Rack cards, to publicize our little burg to tourists around Kentucky, are also in the works thanks to a grant. And of course, do not forget Coming Home to Christmas on the Square in December.

The Greensburg Arts Council meets the second Thursday of each month at 10amCT at Longhunters Coffee on the 2nd floor. Anyone interested is the Arts is welcome to attend. Many hands make light work.
