Cullowhee Mountain ARTS summer series kicks off

Written by 

The Cullowhee Mountain ARTS summer series will commence June 15-20 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee. 

The five-week series includes art and creative writing workshops, youth art camps and the FAM-CMA invitational art exhibit. CMA brings a distinguished faculty, with national and international reputations, to teach five-day workshops offered in book arts, ceramics, creative writing, mixed media, painting and printmaking. The workshop environment provides an immersion experience in a specific area, supplemented with lectures, demonstrations, portfolio talks, readings and presentations. Instruction and sharing among attendees takes place within the WCU Bardo Arts Center and the School of Art and Design. Workshops are offered for all levels of artists and writers, including beginners.

Youth programs include two, four and five-day art camps for ages 5-12. This year, artist Kjeltsy Hanson will lead two special camps that combine mask making, puppet making and performance. Two-day workshops will let young artists create themselves as super-heroes with super powers. 

In concert with the Summer ARTS Series, The Fine Art Museum at WCU is hosting the 2nd annual FAM-CMA Invitational Exhibit, June 16 – July 25. The exhibit features the work of Cullowhee Mountain ARTS summer faculty, contemporary artists from all points in the United States. Expect an invigorating compilation of art in a multitude of mediums.

Enrollment is open for most workshops and youth programs. Details are available at or by calling 828.342.6913.

Cullowhee Mountain ARTS receives sponsorship from the College of Fine and Performing Arts at Western Carolina University.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceWhen the camera bulb flashed, it hit me — had it really been that long?

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
