Blue Ridge Craft Trails Exhibit

February 10 - May 15

Mica Fish by Janice MacDonald

A new exhibit featuring the works of nearly three dozen Western North Carolina craft artists opens on Monday, February 10, 2020 at the Western Office of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources in Asheville, North Carolina. The exhibit is an extension of the new Blue Ridge Craft Trails. It highlights the diverse works of craft found in the North Carolina mountains and foothills.

Artists in the exhibit include Billy J. Welch of Robbinsville with a hand-carved Cherokee Booger Mask, Pam Silva of Brasstown with a “flower vase” made of Merino wool and silk, and Janice MacDonald of Morganton with a “mica fish” crafted from screen wire and mica mined from local mountains.

The exhibit is made possible through a partnership between North Carolina Arts Council, North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Appalachian Regional Commission, Southern Highland Craft Guild, and the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.

Located at 176 Riceville Rd. Asheville, North Carolina, the exhibit hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
