The Art Club of Sun City Center Celebrates 50 Years

Don’t miss the Annual Tour of Homes!

By Paula Lickfeldt

The Art Club of SCC has a membership of around 200.  The members of the art club offer five or six different classes in all mediums each year.  Information about the classes can be obtained by visiting the website: www.artclubofscc.org or in the art room.  Classes are available to all SCC association members, Kings Point and Freedom Plaza residents.  Membership in the art club is necessary.

The club meets from September to May with various events.  On the third Monday of each month a business meeting and art demonstration is held at the Rollins Theatre at 1 p.m.  On the first Wednesday of each month the art gallery next to the art room is open from 1 until 3 for an exhibit of paintings done by art club members and a demonstration of some sort.  The public is invited.  Summer meetings are informal and not on a regular basis.

This year, the Art Club of SCC will be hosting its annual Tour of Homes.  The date of the tour is Saturday November 12 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.  The cost of a ticket is $10 per person.  Tickets can be purchased at the art gallery on Sept. 19, Oct. 5, and Nov. 2 from 1 until 3 p.m. or at the kiosk in the Atrium Building on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from October 21 through November 11 from 9 until 12 noon.

Tickets may also be purchased at each of the homes on the day of the tour. A list of the homes to be on the tour can be picked up at the kiosk. Each of the homes on the art tour belong to an Art Club member or a friend of an Art Club member.

The ticket will be a tri-fold brochure that will have the address of the home and a description of the home’s special features.  The ticket holder will get a stamp on their ticket at each home. The tour will consist of six homes, three on the north side of 674 and three on the south side of 674. Each home will have a coordinator and three to six hostesses.

In February of 2017, the Art Club will celebrate its 50th anniversary with very special free and public art events. Visit the website for further details.
