Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Winter, with its long nights and cold temperatures signals a time of hibernation and reflection. Here in the forested mountains of the Blue Ridges, it as a time of revelation: With leaves fallen, the bare outlines of the landscape show. What is hidden becomes visible. There tends to be more time to ponder. Two of the favorite events here in the gallery start our new year each year: February is our Annual Miniatures Show & April is our Annual Face Jug Show…these traditions start each year with direction and excitement. Last year, just as our lock-down was commencing, The Face Jug show gave us hope….YOU showed up, albeit via the phones, but we knew we would/could survive…and that fueled our drive to continue to find ways to stay safe, support our artists and forge ahead. When we were able to unlock our door, we found heartfelt camaraderie in the few folks that would venture in, mostly just to once again experience, in person, the uplifting nature of art. The power and glory of art [in all its forms, not just the visual] is strong and alive and thriving…What is reinforced during this season, is how vital the creative spirit as revealed in art is…and how fortunate we feel in getting to share that experience with our artists and you.
The gallery is OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK : 11 – 5
