Local art stirs batter at Cornbread Cook-Off

Lillian Trettin’s artwork is on dispaly at the Avery Arts Council’s gallery.

On June 23, excitement will be cooking in Linville.

Not only is it the Old Hampton Store’s annual Cornbread Cook-Off, but it is also the first Avery Tour de Art of the year and the reception date for the Avery Arts Council’s current exhibition, “Mountains, Legends and Lore.”

To celebrate all things homemade and creative, the Avery Arts Council will host four artists’ demonstrations: wood-turner Jim Caskowski, basket weaver Connie Dellinger-Brooks and exhibiting artists Linda Elksnin and Lillian Trettin.

These artists will be on hand during the day, showing the public what they do best. Trettin and Elksnin will both be demonstrating their artistic mediums and inviting the public to join in. The reception takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. and, like the rest of the day’s events, is free and open to the public.
