LMC Alumni Arts and Crafts Show July 10-18
The 38th annual Alumni Arts and Crafts Show and Sale will be held July 10-18 in the Cannon Student Center at Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk as part of Alumni Frolic Week.
The unique show began as an outdoor "clothesline" exhibition held by two Lees-McRae alumni in 1973 and has grown to a show featuring nearly 30 vendors.
Items for sale include pottery, woodworking items, jewelry, pillows, wooden bowls, paintings, crocheted items, ceramics, stained glass, mosaics, floral arrangements and much more.
"All are welcome at our week-long indoor show," said Michelle Vance Scott, LMC graduate and coordinator of volunteers for the show. "Don't let the rain keep you from coming out to shop. Our show features high quality work at prices that fit any budget."
The schedule for the show is as follows: Saturday, July 10, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, July 11, 1 to 4 p.m.; Monday, July 12 - Saturday, July 17, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, July 18, 1 to 4 p.m.
The show and sale is free and open to the public. For more information on the Arts and Crafts Show and Sale or Alumni Frolic Week, contact Michelle Scott by email at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone at (828) 898-2489.
Since its inception, the show has contributed more than $240,000 to College projects, including the purchase of computers, audio-equipment and physical plant improvements. In addition, an invested endowment of $135,000 provides annual Alumni Arts and Crafts Scholarships to worthy students. All proceeds benefit the college.
