The Southern Highland Craft Guild opens its first exhibition for the 2019 year with Deliberate Works in the Folk Art Center’s main gallery upstairs. It features 48 objects from faculty, alumni and students of the Appalachian Center for Craft.
Appalachian Center for Craft and the Southern Highland Craft Guild share a history that documents the role of craft education in preserving traditional culture, creating economic opportunity and fostering professional practice. The relationship continues with the exhibition on view. All of the artists represent the vitality and creativity of craft practice today, which is the ultimate purpose of both institutions.
Since 1979, The Appalachian Center for Craft (part of the School of Art, Craft & Design at Tennessee Tech University’s College of Fine Arts) has been dedicated to promoting excellence in American craft by teaching tradition and innovation in technique, concept and design, by providing access to the highest quality craft education, professional artists, and programs in a community arts context.
