Talented folks fill Pecan Plantation, and one of the most creative and active bunches in our community is the Pecan Plantation Art Guild (PPAG). First place artist of the month for November went to Marcia Hardy, and also garnering accolades for artistic work were Gwen Faherty, Jean Carmichael, Kathy Yoders, and Donna Stookesberry.
These folks and other members of the PPAG have work featured at the Pecan clubhouse, the Pecan Activities Center (PAC), and various businesses in Pecan Village, as well as on the guild’s website: www.pecanplantationartguild.com. Pieces are displayed for both viewing and purchase.
Congratulations to PPAG’s new officers for 2014 who will be inducted at the next meeting on Dec. 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the PAC: president, Kathleen Bales; vice president, Bonnie Chilcutt; secretary, Jonne Hough; and treasurer, Jim Stewart.
Also at the December meeting, members and guests are welcome to participate in a silent auction fund raiser and bid on interesting art items while enjoying some refreshments and fellowship.
The PPAG Christmas party comes on Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Pecan firehouse. Members and spouses are welcome.
New members who are Pecan residents 18 years of age or older are always welcome in the PPAG. For more information on art activities in Pecan, contact PPAG president Martie Rains at 817- 279-1348.
