Debutantes of the Decades

The_Debutante_by_Charles_Dana_Gibson.jpg

Debutante Balls, while extant in many different regions prior to 1950 has slowly become extinct in nearly all of America except the South. The South has created a unique tradition around Debutantes and Cotillions (the Debutante balls). Each year, young women are presented in a formal event as a sort of 'coming out into society.' At least, this was the traditional way of seeing things. Perspectives have changed over the years, as have many different aspects of the Debutante culture. Our very own Cleveland-Athens Cotillion, having recently celebrated their 55th Holly Ball, will be exhibiting how their traditions have changed over the years through beautiful gowns, jewelry, and various other items unique to Debutantes. Debutante-related programming will also occur over the course of the exhibit, including ballroom dance lessons. 

Exhibit proudly sponsored by the Cleveland-Athens Cotillion

Alan Shuptrine Art Exhibition

It is not everyday we get to be host to an art exhibition. But it will be every Tuesday-Saturday beginning September 27th! This massive exhibition will take over both our lobby and our rotating exhibit area. During our exhibit we will be celebrating art and the Appalachians that inspired it. 

When I am quietly creating in my studio, I often hear my dad’s words of wisdom: “You must see and create beyond the surface level—art should evoke emotion.” I find that painting is a spiritual experience. It takes a tremendous amount of courage for an artist to create what is deep within the heart and soul, and to be vulnerable. I find myself thanking God for my blessings and pulling encouragement from Him to press onward, and upwards.
