Volunteer of the Month: Peter Brown

We’re proud to announce February’s Volunteer of the Month, Peter Brown! Peter painted the gallery walls and pedestals this January. He is also on the installation crew and helped hang our current exhibit, LOVE. Thank you, Peter, for all your hard work and dedication to the gallery! 

Quilt Block Painting

HCAC’s quilt block studio is located at the Folkmoot Friendship Center and is volunteer-run. Our amazing volunteers manage the entire quilt block creation process! Volunteers help outline and paint quilt blocks and other quilt block merchandise sold in the Haywood Handmade Gallery. The studio is typically open a few days a week and volunteers sign up for two hour painting shifts. No experience is required! Come paint and make some new friends. 

Gallery Volunteering

Volunteering is perhaps the most important activity anyone can donate to HCAC. Gallery Volunteers keep our gallery open and allow HCAC to promote and sell artist member artwork. HCAC would not be where it is today without many dedicated individuals who give their time by sitting behind our docent desk, selling artwork and promoting HCAC programs.

Mural Painting

The Art Across Haywood program is a community and public art program that brings HCAC artist members and the community together to get creative and beautify Haywood County through public art. The purpose of the program is to create community volunteer opportunities for artist members and encourage at-large community members to engage and incorporate art into their daily lives while beautifying their town.  In 2023, HCAC is working with schools and local businesses on public art murals.
