ICAA Chapter News

Charlotte

The new year began for the Charlotte Chapter with a presentation to the Friends of Art at Fearrington Village in Chatham County, NC. Long-time ICAA stalwart and Charlotte Chapter member Jim Collins spoke on “What Is Classical Architecture?” to over 90 attendees.

This fall, the Charlotte Chapter, working with Rockingham Community College’s (RCC) Center for Creative Woodworking, will offer two, day-long theory and practice classes addressing “Architectural Woodcarving – Elements of a Mantel Piece and Architectural Woodturning – Doric Capital”. The Chapter has helped develop and will assist in promoting these classes, which will be held on Saturday, October 18 and Saturday, November 15. Details and registration can be found on the RCC Center for Creative Woodworking website

Visits to Richard Jenrette’s Millford Plantation and to Old Salem are in the organizational stages.

The Charlotte Chapter would like to thank new corporate supporter, Marvin Windows and Doors, as well as long-time benefactor, Hubert Whitlock Builders for their generous underwriting of the 2014 programs.
