Cheese House presents May members' show
The hills are covered with trees in bloom and birds in full song, as all the creative forces of springtime shower down upon us.
At Banner Elk's Cheese House Gallery, it's human creativity that is on display.
The Avery Arts Council's board of directors invites members of the Friends of Avery Arts to "show their stuff" during the month of May, and organizers say the response has been bountiful.
Artwork from both famous and unknown artists of the High Country will be featured at this show. Council president Mary Ray said, "For some of us, the arts are a profession, and for others, a hobby. We want to celebrate creativity in all forms, and our friends have obliged us with a palette of artistic expression."
The public is invited to the reception honoring exhibitors on Saturday, May 8, from 2-4 p.m. Refreshments will be served out back by the millpond.
Participating artists include: Kevin Beck, Scott Boyle, Patti Connor-Greene, Trish Daniels, Frederick Craig Franz, Jennifer Franz, Lucy Geouge, Dan Greene, Freda Greene, Marilyn Herman, Byron Jones, Pam McKay, Caitlin Morehouse, Mary Ray, Stuart Roper, Jessie Schmidt, Deborah Squier, Christina Shook, Norma Suddreth, Barbara Timberman and John Weber. The artwork ranges from paintings to pottery to jewelry to quilted textiles.
The Members Exhibition can bee seen through May 31 at the Cheese House Gallery, located at 630 Shawneehaw Ave. (N.C. 184). Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturdays by appointment. For more information, call (828) 898-4292 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
