Stop by the NC Glass Center gallery Wednesday-Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. to see the latest Featured Artist Exhibition: Wild Flora of Western North Carolina-by Carla Camasso. Admission is free.
Wild Flora of Western North Carolina is a collection of flame-worked glass sculptures inspired by some of our region’s most beloved native plants. As you walk through the exhibition, each sculpture is meant to provoke peace and wonder, just as one would feel while on a walk in the woods. Like glass, these plants are fragile yet resilient. From lush vibrant greens in the spring to flowers blooming through the summer, to dried leaves in the winter, every season has its own unique beauty to offer.
