March 20 – April 27, 2019 | Geoffrey A. Wolpert Gallery
The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is an annual five-day event in Great Smoky Mountains National Park offering professionally guided programs which explore the region’s rich wildflowers, wildlife, ecology, culture, and natural history through walks, motorcades, photographic tours, art classes, and indoor seminars. Each year, an artist is selected to be featured on the cover of the SWP brochure, T-shirt, and are honored with a solo exhibition at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. This year’s SWP Artist-of-the-Year is Judy Lavoie.
Lavoie’s artwork has won many awards, including Best Of Show in the prestigious 2018 Tennessee Watercolor Society Juried Exhibition. Today she is grateful for the opportunity to indulge in her passion for painting. Inspiration comes from her surroundings, a rural Tennessee community in the Appalachian foothills. In the forest surrounding her home, Judy has identified more than 100 wildflower varieties – an endless source of painting subjects.

Please join us for the reception on Wednesday, April 24th from 5-7pm.
