Southern Highland Craft Guild Offers Fall Craft Fair - Oct. 16-19, 2003

From Oct. 16-19, 2003, the Southern Highland Craft Guild will again fill the Asheville Civic Center, in downtown Asheville, NC, with original works of art. The 56th season of Craft Fairs will showcase traditional and contemporary works by the members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and will feature 180 booths of fine craft.

The Craft Fairs of the Southern Highlands highlight the rich diversity of crafts produced in the Appalachian region, and many of the artists embrace techniques and methods that have been employed in the mountains for centuries. Some have taken these traditions and breathed new life into them, creating unique work that appeals to a contemporary sensibility.

Demonstrations, hands-on experiences, traditional music and children's activities are additional highlights. The Fairs take place at the Asheville Civic Center, 87 Haywood Street, in downtown Asheville, NC. Hours are Thur.-Sun., 10am-6pm. (Admission is $6, children under 12 free with an adult.) Group discounts are available. Additional information is available at (www.southernhighlandguild.org).

The Southern Highland Craft Guild is a non-profit organization with more than 800 members throughout the mountain regions of nine states. To become a member of the Guild, craftspeople must have their work juried and accepted by a committee of peers. The review is based on quality, design and craftsmanship.

For more information check our NC Institutional Gallery listings, call the guild at 828/298-7928, or on the web at (www.southernhighlandgulld.org).
