HCC Crafts 40th anniversary show

Written by 

The Haywood County Arts Council (HCAC) is currently exhibiting a juried show from alumni and faculty of the HCC Professional Crafts Program.

Like the Haywood County Arts Council, the HCC Professional Crafts Program is celebrating 40 years of building a creative community in our region. Held at HCAC’s “Gallery & Gifts” showroom in downtown Waynesville, the show features 16 former students and four current faculty, showing work in clay, jewelry, fiber and wood.

HCC offers a two-year, degree and diploma seeking intensive course of studies in Clay, Fiber, Jewelry and Wood. Through a unique blend of studio experience, classroom education, and hands-on business experience, degree students achieve the skills necessary to become viable independent studio artists or to become valuable, skilled employees in the expanding craft industry.

HCC offers continuing education classes and workshops in clay, fiber, metals, wood, painting, drawing, and music as well as design and computer classes. These classes are year-round and open to the public. Free business seminars such as Marketing for the Craftsperson are offered throughout the year to prepare students and serve the community with the information necessary to develop or participate in successful craft businesses.

“We’re so pleased to host the HCC Professional Crafts Program in the gallery this month. HCC is a wonderful community partner to us, and they produce some of the finest craft artists in our region. This show is a can’t miss look back at 40 years of art,” said HCAC Executive Director Lindsey Solomon.

The exhibit is open through Sept. 30.
