“We’re Building Our Nest Egg Through the #BigPayback!”
The Big Payback is coming May 5, 2015, and the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is excited to take part in this monumental event! The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide online giving day that’s a special occasion to celebrate Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and support the work of nonprofits. This 24-hour online event will help organizations, like this one, raise much-needed unrestricted dollars and bring awareness to pressing needs in our communities. Plus, your gifts made during The Big Payback will be increased by incentives and awards for participating nonprofits, which may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses.

Tammy O’Connor presents
“Hand Shadows: Imaginations in Glass”
Tennessee resident artist Tammy O’Connor creates authentic stained glass designs for residential and commercial clients. Her art embodies the heart and soul of beauty through the richness of light and color in an attempt to perfectly capture her client’s vision.
A native of Montgomery, Alabama, and a graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta, Tammy enjoys continually exploring new methods and creative avenues of working with glass. Her true delight is in making one of a kind art glass designs.
Some of her latest endeavors include a series of hanging art glass designs referred to as “botanicals,” incorporating hand made glass carbon prints of grasses and leaves. She has also recently been mixing painted and kiln-fired glass with more traditional flat glass with resultant nontraditional compositions of what has been described as an” organic- deco” style.
Her past accomplishments include windows at the Alabama Waterworks Building on the Historical Register in Montgomery, Oglethorpe Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, Parkway Baptist Church in Smyrna, Tennessee, Emil’s restaurant, The Celtic Cup coffee house, and many residential windows.
Her work can also be seen at the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center, the Unique Boutique and the newly opened Myers Construction Showroom Tullahoma, TN.
