The new officers of the Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country (FAAHC) met Aug. 21 at president Dana Butler’s home for our first work session of the year 2009-10. We have an exciting and varied Calendar of Events and special programs planned for our members. Current membership is at 43 artists, photographers, craftspeople, musicians, dancers/thespians, writers, and others who simply enjoy and support the ARTS in our part of the Hill Country.
We invite all who are interested in any/all of the monthly events to contact one of our officers for membership info. Yearly dues are just $25., and entitles each member free access to most of the programs, and especially, participation in the May Art Show & Gala.
