SCLT’s next meeting is at the pavilion at McCreery Park April 17 at 5 p.m.

Art Notes: Stoney Lamar is featured in a retrospective of his internationally respected woodturning sculpture work: “A Sense of Balance: The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar” at  Asheville Art Museum; opening reception on Saturday, April 13 from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibit runs from April 12 – Sept. 1. Susie Welsh has an art opening at Kathleen’s Gallery on April 26 from 5-8 p.m., featuring dogs of all sorts: there’s one holding a cup of tea in a wicker chair, and I swear it’s me. A portion of the sales will help benefit Foothills Humane Society.

During the month of April, I’ll have Saturday open studio at 285 Greenville Street from 1-3 p.m; as well as be participating with several other Saluda artists in Art Trek Tryon April 27-26. Over 35 area artists are opening studios for this annual event. Participating artists will be featured in a gallery exhibit at Upstairs Artspace; a preview party on April 26 from 5-8 p.m. Also, mark your calendar for the upcoming Saluda Arts Festival on May 19. Volunteers still needed.

Plans are underway for an open studio tour for Saluda artists/craftspeople this fall; if interested, meet April 6 at 10 a.m. at Richard Baker’s studio on Church Street.

Happy April birthdays to: Martha Ashley, Melody Gibson, Dave Prudhomme, Kaye Vazquez, Cindy Keeter, Betty Anna Brown, Marion Fairey, Hope Pace, Diane Pace, Ruth Anderson, Greaton Sellers and Bonnie Bardos. Happy belated March birthday (and anniversary) to Carey and Beverly Pickard.
