We have new art from Patrick, Carol, and Michelle, so come see us, and hike our easy nature trails and Arboretum. Patrick is away August 30 – September 3 at the 32nd Annual Dragon Con, Dragon Con and next weekend at Yellow Daisy 50th annual Yellow Daisy Festival September 6-9, 2018 Yellow Daisy Festival voted one of the top arts & crafts shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine, a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event, and winner of multiple awards by the Southeast Festival and Events Association.
However, if you can’t make it to Atlanta, Patrick still has plenty of his astonishing art work, handmade glass jewelry, and kaleidoscopes in the Gallery. Carol will be headed out to shows in October, so come by and get a first chance at her new work, including beer mugs with hops vine imprints.
Dr. Ashley has had an excellent health column in the Chattanooga Times Free Press for several years and is now leaving us. We wanted to share his final comments on his hope for a healthier society. Look for the full article in the August 31st edition.
*A healthy society should have open spaces for its people to hike, walk, saunter, or just sit reading a book or taking time to watch the sunset.
*A healthy society has compassion for its individual members and a reverence to the Earth that harbors them.
Here at SVI, we hold these truths to be self-evident and endeavor to provide a place for everyone to be a part of a healthy and peaceful life. Come hike or, if you prefer AC, just sit in our Gallery library and relax or play the old piano! Home-grown herbal tea is always a possibility.
