AMERICAN CRAFT WEEK! October 9: Craft: A Sense of Place

October 4, 2011

In celebration of American Craft Week, HandMade in America’s Executive Director, Gwynne Rukenbrod is hosting an exhibition at The Artery entitled Craft: A Sense of Place, a show that embodies the sense of place found in the Blue Ridge Mountains that inspires the craft artists across the region.

The Western North Carolina craft artists featured in this exhibition make work that is inspired by their sense of place, whether it is an actual place or a feeling, and in Western North Carolina or another area of the world. Artists Daniel Essig, books and mixed media, Chris Perryman, furniture and sculpture, and Caitie Sellers, jewelry and sculpture, all create pieces that evoke a strong sense of place.

Please join HandMade in America for a reception to celebrate the work of regional craft artists during American Craft Week on Friday, October 7 from 7 to 9pm at The Artery, located at  346 Depot Street in the River Arts District.
