Rae Hall is a whimsical painter and sculptor educated at The University of Georgia in Art Education and Sculpture. She is a former art teacher and now focuses on her own individual artistic pursuits. Her work has been featured in business, hospitals, and schools in the greater Atlanta Area. Rae also is the creator of Pillypops: unique stuffed creatures she hand sews. Pillypops are available at Rescue Me Market.
Rae is interested in the playful movement of color expressed through abstract paintings. Her new paintings also feature a few new techniques and experimental characters, including stylized paintings and unique line works.
Currently Rae shows and sells her work in local business, galleries, and online at “Paintings at Rae Hall” on Etsy.com and “Rae Hall” on FineArtAmerica.com and CafePress.com. She is pleased and excited to have the chance to show her work with the Thomaston Upson Arts Council and hopes you’ll drop by to experience her work when the TUAC Gallery is open: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10-5, and Wednesday from 10-12. The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception on November 7th, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Rae’s artwork will be on display until November 8th.

The Thomaston Upson Arts Council presents 2013's Annual Summer Theater Production School House Rock Live Jr. featuring over 40 students from the area and directed by Erin Clarke. The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, science and politics through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, instructing a whole new generation to “Unpack Your Adjectives” and “Do The Circulation,” it’s lighting up stage at the R. E. Lee Auditorium on August 2 & 3 at 7 p.m. as well as a matinee performance on August 4 at 2 p.m.
Tommi, a nerve-wracked school teacher nervous about her first day of teaching, tries to relax by watching TV when various characters representing facets of her personality emerge from the set and show her how to win her students over with imagination and music, through such beloved Schoolhouse Rock songs as “Just A Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction.”
Children just discovering the TV series to “Generation X-ers” seeking a taste of nostalgia will delight in this sure-fire entertainment that’s simply good, clean – and educational – fun. Tickets are available for $7 at the door at each performance or in advance at the TUAC office. If you have any questions please call the TUAC office at 706-647-1605. TUAC would like to thank Thomaston Hospice, the Summer Theater’s Corporate Sponsor.
