The ‘Art Show at the Expo’ Starts Tomorrow

By Linda Whalon Madill Art Club Reporter

At last the 2017 Art Show at the Expo is here! The doors open on Friday, Oct. 20, at 10 a.m. and remain open until 7 p.m. Saturday the show opens from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday the hours are 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This is our 56th year to bring the art show to Marshall County residents, as well as to visitors from all over the state. Admission is free, and we will be serving complimentary snacks and refreshments throughout the show.

A favorite event each year that occurs during the show is our $1 raffle for a chance to win an original art piece. This year the painting being raffled off is by artist and Madill Art Club member, Mike Craig. It is a beautiful oil painting called “Sunset on the Marsh,” which captures the beauty and peace of nature. Mike will also be one of the artists who will be doing a live demonstration of oil painting at the show.

The following year he earned his master’s degree in art. Stan is also known for his multiple “one man shows” at the Wildwood Gallery and Glass Works. His artwork has been displayed in group shows at the Finley Cultural Center and Grayson County College.

Buncombe: Check Presented to Fulton VFD for Hurricane Relief

By Karen Wootton Community Connection

What happened to the rain? What happened to September? Everything seems to be going by way too fast. It couldn’t be an age thing, could it?

Winter will be approaching soon, and it’s time to be thinking of winterizing your power toys that you won’t be using this winter. Boat mechanics get booked early, and it would be a wise investment to get on their to-do list.

Texoma Fire District: Don’t Miss Out on the Fall Craft, Bake Sale Held on Oct. 7

by Paula Zimmerman

The last couple of weeks have certainly been one of the worst for storms hitting the U.S.

Harvey really did a number on Texas and Louisiana and then for Florida to have to endure the storm of the century.

Then, to have another hurricane, Jose, out in the Atlantic seems too much.

You would have thought that was more than enough, but then Katia had to come into the Gulf to visit Mexico and then the earthquake!
