It’s always a treat to see the work of our talented local artists up close, so we were really excited to hear that two of our local artists’ groups — the Arrowhead Artists and Artisans League (A3L) and the McDowell Arts Council Association (MACA) — will be hosting the first Foothills Arts & Crafts Holiday Show on Saturday and Sunday, November 17-18, 2012, at the Corpening Memorial YMCA in Marion (25 minutes east of the Inn on Mill Creek).
Artists and craftspeople will exhibit and sell their work at the Foothills Arts & Crafts Holiday Show, which is a juried event, meaning you will see some of the finest artistry and craftwork from our fabulous McDowell County in Western North Carolina, which has a rich tradition in the arts. And with the show being the weekend before Thanksgiving, it’s perfect for getting a jumpstart on your Christmas shopping by picking up a unique, handmade gift or two for your loved ones.
The Foothills Arts & Crafts Holiday Show hours are Saturday, November 17, 10am-5pm, and Sunday, November 18, 1pm-5pm. For more information, see http://arrowheadart.org/fhs12.php.
