17 WNC Craft Artists Show this weekend

HandMade in America is hosting Crafted, a juried exhibition of 17 WNC Craft Artists, sponsored by Kemper Strategy. The vibrant community of artisans has made Western North Carolina a destination for American craft. In a region of diverse artists with unique aesthetics, craft has brought the worlds of traditional and contemporary artists together in a union spanning from funky to functional.

Traditional furniture by Alan Arcand displayed in conjunction with contemporary sculptural ceramic work by Erin Essin Campbell illustrates how two beautifully crafted, yet completely diverse artistic approaches can communicate with one another.

Please join HandMade in America for a reception to celebrate the work of 17 regional craft artists during American Craft Week on Friday, October 14 from 5:30 to 8pm at HandMade in America located at the corner of Church and Hilliard in Downtown Asheville. HandMade in America is located at 125 S Lexington Avenue, Suite 101.

Additional artists showcased in wood, fiber, glass, metal and clay are: Andrea Brewer, Pam Brewer, Marissa Domanski, Sondra Dorn, Ben Elliot, Paul Frehe, Lesley Keeble, Blake Kennedy, Selinde Lanier, Martin Libman, Zac Lopez-Ibanez, Libby & Jim Mijanovich, Richard Montgomery, John Shearin, and Doc Welty.
