Art for a Cause
by Ashley Stewart
This Labor Day weekend, join the Cashiers Rotary in celebrating the love of art and crafting at the 12th Annual Cashiers Rotary Arts and Crafts Show.
Twice a year, the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley transforms The Village Green into a living, breathing art space. This celebration of fine arts, local crafts and old-fashioned philanthropy brings exceptionally talented and skilled artisans from across the Southeast and beyond.
On August 31 and September 1, over 70 artisans will be spread out across the Village Green for the Art for a Cause juried art show.
Everything is handmade, including jewelry, textiles, instruments, condiments and soaps. The show represents local regional artisans, so you’re sure to find a true one-of-a-kind piece of Appalachian art.
The show is open from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. on both days, rain or shine. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged. All of the proceeds from the show go back into the community through scholarships and grants for local students and non-profits.
You can also support your community by purchasing raffle tickets for $10 each. Tickets are available throughout the summer from any Rotarian or by emailing email@example.com. Prizes include your choice of $1,000 or an iPad. The drawing will be held Sunday afternoon at the Gazebo, but you need not be present to win. For more information, visit CashiersRotary.org.
