Live music, local food and art...what else could make an awesome Friday night? Oh yeah, crafty camaraderie!
Beat the crowds with exclusive first access to handmade crafts from artists across the Southeast before Saturday’s open craft market!
Be the first to see our crowd-sourced community gallery exhibition, ONEx100: Creating within Constraints. It features the work of 100 artists who were asked to create a piece that must fit in a 1x1x1 foot area. The walls are going to be packed with creativity so don't miss it. Grab a drink and critique your favorite piece with a friend.
Includes admission to Found in Translation: The Art of Steven Naifeh and the collection galleries. Take the docent led tour and get insights on 26 large-scale geometric abstractions in the exhibition. It shows visitors that what we share culturally is perhaps greater than what separates us.
