The meeting will be an ideal time to drop off items for the Mistletoe Market, which TUAC is hosting again this year. Any artist or photographer who is a TUAC member is invited to bring items (no more than 25) to sell during the Mistletoe Market, which opens on Tuesday, November 20th, just in time for holiday shopping. The Mistletoe Market/Gift Shop will be open during TUAC’s regular business hours (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesdays 10 a.m. to Noon), as well as during the third annual Victorian Christmas Celebration that will be held on the square the evening of Thursday, Nov. 29.
The photography of Brenda Fayard, one of the charter members of Shutterbugs, is being featured this month in an exhibit at A Novel Experience, a bookstore located beside The Country Moose Restaurant on the courthouse square in Zebulon. The reception honoring Brenda will be held on Friday, November 16th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Shutterbugs are planning to attend not only to enjoy seeing the photographs but also to celebrate with Brenda over having a solo show, an honor afforded to only a few photographers.
Shutterbugs extend get well wishes to their current president, Dee DeLoatch, who is recovering from recent surgery at Duke University Hospital.

An independent jury panel, led by professional photographer, Jim Lewchuk, took special and detailed care in reviewing more than 125 entries submitted by 31 photographers. According to Karen Powers, Gallery Manager at Arts Clayton, “The jury was impressed by all of the entries and conveyed that it was very difficult to decide which works to include in the show.” Photo by Peggy Brooks.
