New Gallery Show – Raising Fun – Opens September 3
The Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery & Gifts will be opening a new exhibit called Raising Fun on September 3. It will host art dedicated to the beautiful monarch butterfly, a fitting topic for their upcoming season of migration. Raising Fun will also serve as a fund raising exhibit for Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery & Gifts space to include additional three dimensional art pieces by local artists and artisans. This show is for everyone; whether you want to view transformational butterfly art or help transform a gallery space.
Raising Fun will host artists from the Master Gardeners, who will be displaying works of art that include the monarch butterfly. This portion of the show will help raise awareness of the plight of the monarch, including their possible extinction and the causes of their struggles to survive. The monarchs start their migration through our mountain area in mid-September, so this topic is especially important to our region.
We invite all to come out to our opening reception of Raising Fun at the next Art After Dark, September 4th, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Come enjoy food and live music by our Junior Appalachian Musicians! Raising Fun will run from September 3 – 26.
JAM Junior Appalachian Musicians...September 19 @ 3:00 pm at Haywood County Public Library
