TOE RIVER ARTS JURIED SHOW
OCTOBER 1-NOVEMBER 5
This year’s Toe River Juried Art Show competition features over 75 works selected from the over 150 submitted for consideration. All mediums were accepted and will be on display through Saturday, November 5. These works were juried by Sherry Masters. Masters has been a buyer for the Allanstand Craft Shop of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and manager of the Grovewood Gallery. Currently she owns and operates the ArtsConnections that connect art lovers and art makers in custom designed tours. During a reception on Friday, October 7, she will present the awards. The appetizer potluck reception is from 5 to 7pm, free, and open to the public at the Spruce Pine Gallery.
This is TRAC’s second annual artist competition. Artists were invited to submit work from the surrounding states of SC, TN, VA, and GA. Denise Cook, the Arts Council’s Executive Director offered, “This second response was welcoming. This is an opportunity for our artists to showcase their work, and by opening up the competition to other states, we are inviting those outside our community to visit our counties’ mountainous beauty and limitless talent.”
