It is up and running, and now both Asheville and WNC readers, and visitors, have access to comprehensive Art & Craft event information which previously could only be found by dredging through numerous websites. Posting to this calendar is both open access and free to Artists, Galleries, Exhibitions, Art Walks, Studios, Schools and Classes, Associations, and Open Houses . . . everyone who promotes Arts & Crafts. If this sounds altruistic, it is ... we want the emerging artist or crafter, as well as those established, to have the opportunity to be seen.
The success of this site is largely dependent upon the willingness of people who make and/or sell art to take an active role in entering their events so that their customers or clients (some yet unknown) can attend, or make plans to attend, an opening, exhibition, etc.
All the bells and whistles are yet to be connected. It is functional and you can “occupy your dates” well in advance of an event.
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! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
