A waterfall of exhibitions, a river of outreach to school kids
There’s most always a full agenda of intriguing programs underfoot at the Transylvania Community Arts Council, and most always they have to do with transmitting the wonder of the arts, the healing aspects of creativity and imagination, to a range of diverse audiences, including individuals who are disabled or behind prison walls.
Each year, more than 400 artists showcase their work in monthly exhibits at the South Caldwell Street building in downtown Brevard. In addition to an annual juried exhibition, a spring art show features the work of local school kids. Practically every child in the county will be touched by the arts council’s Arts-in-Schools program that shuttles artists into Transylvania schools to serve as mentors and enthusiasts.
Pottery making, whether wheel thrown or hand-built, is taught on the ground floor of the center, a welcoming rendezvous point near the center of town in the midst of North Carolina’s “land of the waterfalls.”
