The Haywood County Arts Council (HCAC) is excited to announce our upcoming exhibition featuring original art from 12 local artists. The 2021 Juried Artist Exhibit opens on April 2 and will run through May 1.

Each of our exhibiting artists went through an extensive jury process and we are delighted to have their work in the gallery.

Artists included in this exhibit: Joan Bazzel, Linda Blount, Mary Decker, Peggy Duncan, Gayle Haynie, Alice Herring, Betsy Meyer, Jennifer Sharkey, Debbie Skelly, Carolyn Strickland, Cheryl Summey, and Lisa Townsend.

The Haywood County Arts Council’s Juried Artist Exhibit was launched in 2018 in order to feature jury-selected artists who specialize in a wide variety of mediums from: oil, acrylic, clay, watercolor, forged steel, coldwax, collages, wood, glass, fiber, jewelry, egg tempera, photography to mixed media. The Haywood County Arts Council believes that original art by local artisans can be both affordable and collectable.

Visit the Haywood County Arts Council at 86 N. Main St. in Waynesville to view the variety of art for sale. Open Monday – Thursday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
