SUPPORTING ARTS AND CRAFTS IN APPALACHIA THROUGH EDUCATION, SALES, AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Items for the next jury session are due Wednesday, September 25, to Wednesday, October 2, for the jury process. You may pick up a packet at the Center or visit here for the forms and instructions. If you have any additional questions, please email us.

We hope you will stop by the Center during the upcoming Fall Porch Sale October 4 – October 18. The Porch Sale, held each Fall, features work from juried and non-juried members of the Craft Center. It’s an excellent time to shop for discounted artwork. The Porch Sale provides our members the opportunity to replenish their artwork for the new year.

Interested in selling your work at the Fall Porch Sale? Instructions and forms for members wanting to sell their handcrafted items at the porch sale are at the sales desk or you can email appalachianartscenter@gmail.com to get a copy.

This November, the Center will be participating in Downtown Knoxville’s First Friday event! All members, juried or not, are invited to submit work for consideration to be on display (and for sale) throughout the month of November at the Emporium in Downtown Knoxville.

Interested Members are invited to submit up to 3 gallery-quality pieces to the Center throughout the week of September 23 – October 2. Items will be juried by the Standards Committee for consideration in the exhibit. It is recommended to submit pieces (2D/3D) that will show well in a large gallery space.

Due to the limited space of the gallery, not all items will be accepted into the exhibit. Members planning to submit pieces, please contact Ashley Pegram at apegram@appalachianarts.net for a submission packet. Artists will receive their regular commission for any items sold at the Emporium.

Our reception will be on Friday, November 1, at the Emporium. Join us there!
