The opening reception, sponsored by AT&T Yellow Pages, is from 6 to 8 pm. Community activities including family programs and lectures will be organized in conjunction with the exhibit. This exhibit is one of the few times in which both visual and craft artists have the opportunity to show under the same roof. Terri Jordan, Community Relations Director at the Customs House says,”This exhibit showcases some of the best that Tennessee has to offer in the arts. In the past, we have had colorful batik wall hangings, wood-turned bowls, and jewelry displayed around vivid paintings. It truly makes for a beautiful exhibit.”

The deadline for entries is November 14th. The prospectus can be downloaded from the Museum’s website at www.customshousemuseum.org and is available in the Museum lobby.
