Listen to your Art
by Cynthia Strain
What could be better than enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery and rivers of the Highlands area?
Add an amazing art and craft show!
Highlands Mountaintop Rotary invites you to do just that on August 24 and 25 for the Highlands Village Square Art & Craft Show.
Paintings, prints and photography will be accompanied by top quality crafts like turned wood, art glass, sculpture and home accessories. There is a great selection of rustic furniture, as well as pottery, jewelry, and other wonderful things. One such artisan is master wood-turner Brian Sykes, who never ceases to amaze shoppers and collectors with new creations like the one shown here.
The 75-plus artisans come from all over the mountains of Western North Carolina, north Georgia, South Carolina, and eastern Tennessee. This is your chance to meet the talented people who pour their heart and soul into their amazing creations so that you can enjoy them for years to come.
The show is held in beautiful Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park on Pine Street downtown. It runs from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. both days, rain or shine, and there is no admission charge.
We promise you won’t go hungry, because Mountain Top Rotary is serving up Dr. John’s famous tacos. Fressers Courtyard Café will be open in Highlands Village Square for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner, and there are many other dining options in the area as well.
Bring the kids and the dog for a lively and fun time. Watch demonstrations of jewelry-making and and leatherwork, Enjoy live music on the stage by the Mountain Dulcimer Group, and indulge in some kettle corn. It all supports the great work that Mountaintop Rotary does in our community. For more information check our Facebook page or call Coordinator Cynthia Strain at (828) 787-2021.
