The grand opening of the Fine Art Gallery at The Appalachian Artisans Society Gallery is today, August 25, beginning at 2:00 pm. The TAAS Gallery is located at 48 Main Street in Old Fort, about 15 minutes east of us, and it features art for sale by over 60 Appalachian artists. The Gallery is owned and operated by Beverly Heldman, a native Old Fort resident and artisan hand crafter who specializes in jewelry creation.
At the grand opening of the Fine Art Gallery, you can meet the artists and gallery owners, enjoy the festivities and help TAAS raise money for the Davidson’s Fort Historic Park. [The Park is set to include a replica of Davidson’s Fort, a stockade fort from the 1700’s, and it’s being funded through donations, fundraisers and volunteers.] A $5 ticket (all proceeds go to this non-profit organization) may bring you a Bob Travers’ limited edition, framed print. Drawing is at 4:00 pm. Stop by during business hours to purchase a ticket or call 828.668.1070.
Gallery hours are 10am-5pm (Tuesday-Friday) and 10am to 6pm (Saturday).
