Gourd Exposure (Central Ala.) Patch
Organized in November 2012 Gourd Exposure is centrally located for gourd artists and enthusiasts in Bibb, Chilton, Coosa, Southern Jefferson, Shelby and Tuscaloosa counties. Meetings are held the third Saturday of the month in Historic Downtown Montevallo. For more information contact Becky Cox-Rodgers at Falcon Art Supply 623 Main Street Montevallo Al. 35115. Phone #205-665-2237. Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Meetings/classes begin at 10 am with light refreshments provided. Lunches can be brown bagged or Montevallo has numerous restaurants. As our name implies the objective of this group is “To Be Exposed” to as much gourd art, techniques and fellowship as possible. We plan our meetings on a quarterly basis by group consensus and are very relaxed and informal. We do not have officers or a bank account. Individuals pay for the classes they attend and are responsible for their own supplies. We strive to bring artists from Alabama and the Southeast to share their skills and talents with the group, as well as, have workshops lead by our own members.
All are welcome – experienced, novice, or beginner. We also plan to participate in regional art events “To Expose” the general public to the most versatile of vegetables.
