Arts Council of Williamson County announces March’s “Brown Bag Lunch Bunch” guest speaker, Jeremy Spencer, Firefly Fine Arts Festival.

The Arts Council of Williamson County’s ‘Brown Bag Lunch Bunch’ will meet on Friday, March 13, from 11 am – 1 pm at the Williamson County Public Library (main conference room), 1314 Columbia Pike in Franklin.

Jeremy Spencer, Festival Director, will speak about the inaugural Firefly Fine Arts Festival on June 26-28, 2009 at the beautiful, custom-designed grounds adjacent to the award-winning Renaissance Center in Dickson, TN, just 30 miles west of Nashville. The Firefly Fine Arts Festival is a juried fine art and fine craft festival produced through a collaborative effort of Community Arts Development of Dickson County, The Renaissance Center, and the Tennessee Arts Commission. This three-day festival provides an opportunity to not only purchase amazing original art, but to interact with the creative minds that produce the work, all while enjoying performances throughout the day on two stages; children’s activities; diverse and local food and beverage vendors; demonstrations of artists at work; and much more throughout the weekend.

‘Supplies for Soldiers’ collection continues again this month. The Arts Council is collecting supplies for troops stationed in Iraq. They will be collecting simple, everyday supplies for them (preferably something easy to ship). You bring the supplies, they'll get them to the soldiers.

Did you ever wonder where those supplies that we've been collecting have been going?
Come and meet Jimmy Finney! Jimmy’s troop was the recipient of the supplies and he is back from Iraq! You are invited to a Potluck Lunch, Monday, March 23rd, 12 - 2 pm at the Franklin – Cumberland Presbyterian Church on 615 West Main Street. If you can't make it to the potluck lunch, Jimmy will also be at 'An Artist's Window' art show on March 20 at the Factory.

Grab your lunch and join them for a lunchtime of artistic fun and camaraderie. You provide your lunch; they’ll provide the location! The Arts Council’s ‘Brown Bag Lunch Bunch’ meets 2nd Friday of most months.
