The Haywood County arts council
Community involved in the arts
The Haywood County Arts Council (HCAC) is excited to announce August’s Artist Member Exhibit, which opens on August 6, 2021. This exhibit is a favorite among the HCAC artist membership community. Executive Director, Morgan Beryl mentions, “this show is really special because of the sheer variety; there is no theme or medium requirement, so it really sparks interest in all art lovers.” The exhibition runs from August 6 – 28, 2021, and features work from 38 artists, working in mediums ranging from fiber to photorealism paintings.
Join Us this Friday! HCAC invites folks to join in the fun at an opening reception on August 6, from 5 – 7 pm at the gallery at 86 N. Main Street in downtown Waynesville. “The HCAC Board of Directors is excited to sponsor the artist member exhibit reception. The artist members are what make the HCAC community so special, and we love giving back to them by throwing a bit of a party on opening night, which includes some food, drink, and music” says, HCAC board president, Joey Fuseler. The live music, which starts at 5:30 pm, will highlight HCAC’s Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) Program, with traditional Appalachian music by JAM instructors: Travis Stuart, Robby Robertson, and Cary Fridley.
Artist Demonstration: August 21: HCAC will also host an artist demonstration on August 21, 2021, from 11 am – 1 pm, by participating artist Nancy Blevins. The demonstration will be silk dye painting in the serti technique with water-based gutta resist. “This technique is perfect for wearable art such as scarves, because after completion the feel of the silk is wonderfully soft while maintaining the brilliantly colored designs” explains, Blevins.
