Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts is exhibiting works of over 100 Arrowmont instructors who are teaching during the 2016 workshop season.
The exhibit features a range of media including woodworking, glass, ceramics, painting, fiber and textile work, metals, jewelry, book arts, photography and printmaking. The show celebrates Arrowmont’s instructors and functions as an educational tool, demonstrating skills and techniques that instructors focus on in their workshops. The exhibit is on view from May 21 – August 20, 2016. Admission is free and the community is encouraged to attend with their friends and family. Gallery hours are Monday–Friday 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
“The Instructor Exhibition is an annual Arrowmont tradition and offers work of nationally and internationally recognized artists who make up Arrowmont’s faculty. They come from across the globe to share skills and ideas, foster new thinking, artistic growth and creative camaraderie. We are pleased to provide the community with the opportunity to view these outstanding works of art,” said Arrowmont Executive Director Bill May.
In June, an interactive element will be introduced to the Instructor Exhibition. Using a smart phone, viewers can watch videos of instructor demonstrations given during their Arrowmont workshop.
