Fall Porch Sale, October 2-16, 2020

Arts and Crafts from Tennessee in everybody’s price range. Stop by for some hand-crafted bargains with new items arriving throughout the sale.

Members, juried or not, who’d like to sell may pick up an instruction sheet at the Center or visit appalachianarts.net for an electronic copy. For more information, email appalachianartscenter@gmail.com.

We’ve had to go virtual due to COVID-19, but those who believe in our missions of service & education can still contribute to our biggest fundraiser of the year. And, especially for juried artists, please donate one of your best items for our virtual auction!

To support the Center, please consider purchasing one of our 50th Anniversary coffee mugs, created by our own Alice Moores. Don’t they just look like Appalachia and the colors of our mountains and streams?

Our Craft Cottage

The Craft Cottage is similar to a lending library for craft kits, except you get to keep the kit forever. It’s located on the front porch of the Center and provides free, kid-friendly, take-home craft kits. Sort of a Keeping Library for Crafts for adults and kids. But let’s face it, Craft Cottage is much easier to say.

If you’re interested in creating craft kits, please reach out to Ashley at apegram@appalachianarts.net.
