Hope readers enjoyed ‘Smoky Mountain Made’

To the Editor:

I hope that readers of The Smoky Mountain News have noticed the new series that has been running for the past few months. This series was titled “Smoky Mountain Made” and featured artists of Jackson County. With support from The Smoky Mountain News and the Jackson County Arts Council, we were able to profile 10 working artists living and working in Jackson County. We hope that Smoky Mountain News readers enjoyed learning about the talent in our region. While this initial series was limited to Jackson County, we are hoping to extend “Smoky Mountain Made” to nearby counties. Stay tuned.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home.
