The Etowah Arts Commission is pleased to announce the Nancy Cantrell Dender artwork exhibit is now open! Featuring over 30 hand-painted items, including china plates, bowls, and vases, this exhibit shows exquisite examples of art produced by the late Nancy Cantrell Dender. Nancy Cantrell Dender founded the Etowah Arts Commission in 1977, thereby creating the second rural arts council in Tennessee. She served as the first chairman and remained a key advisor and supporter for over thirty years. An accomplished artist in own right, Nancy had a special love for china painting and music. Her interest in the arts began as a child but grew during her time at the University of Tennessee where her studies included craft and theater. In addition to the exhibit featuring her work, the gallery of the Etowah Arts Commission has also been renamed in her honor. The “Nancy Cantrell Dender Gallery” is open from noon until 6:00pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to the public, free of charge. A reception to dedicate the naming of the gallery will be held on Thursday evening, August 14th, from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. The public is invited to attend.
