Mica Gallery in Bakersville reopens April 6th!
Mica reopens! After a long winter’s nap, downtown Bakersville, NC re-awakens as Mica throws open its doors in full bloom with wonderful surprises.
Mica, a cooperative gallery of fine contemporary craft, begins its sixth season with newest member, Robbie Bell of Speckled Dog Pottery. Robbie has had a studio for functional pottery in Bakersville for five years and is organist and choirmaster for Trinity Episcopal Church in Spruce Pine.
In addition, Mica’s newest offerings include the work of Marita Strauss’ jewelry and Katherine McCarty’s oil paintings. And during the months of April and May as a special surprise to celebrate Mother’s Day and the joy of spring, a garden gift will be included in each purchase, as well as an opportunity to sign up for the drawing of a Mica gift certificate, with the drawing taking place the Saturday before Mother’s Day.
Beginning April 4th, Mica, located on Mitchell Avenue, opens Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 – 5 and Sundays from 12 – 5; with stunning work by 19 local artists, including furniture, sculpture, wearables, jewelry, and, of course, functional pottery. Mica is a must see destination for those who appreciate the handmade. Stop by, meet an artist, and celebrate spring!
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
