Southern Highland Craft Guild Celebrates Summer of Glass at the Guild’s Biltmore Village Gallery in Asheville, NC – June 16, 2018

June 9, 2018

The gallery of Southern Highland Craft Guild in Biltmore Village in Asheville, NC, will showcase two generations of glassblowers on Saturday, June 16, 2018, from 2:30 to 5pm. Celebrating Asheville’s summer focus on glass with the ongoing Chihuly installation at the Biltmore Estate, the Guild is offering an afternoon for the public to meet glass makers to learn more about the craft of glass and their stories. Wine, cheese and other lighter fare will be provided, as well as live entertainment.


Work by Loretta Forde

Members David Wilson and his wife Loretta Forde will be at the gallery sharing their technique and passion for this craft. Wilson has been blowing glass for over 35 years, and has been heavily involved with Penland School of Crafts both as a student and an instructor. Forde, has also been a student of Penland, and spent many years apprenticing with local glass blowers to refine her technique. The two own and operate Toe River Studio Glass in Burnsville, NC, making a range of functional to one-of-a-kind objects. From vases to paperweights, to large bowls and plasma sculptures, the gallery will showcase a selection of their work.


Work by Hayden Wilson

In addition, their son and well-known glass artist, Hayden Wilson of the NC Glass Center, will also be showcasing his work and talent. Hayden was raised in the glassblowing scene of Western North Carolina and has worked professionally in glass for the past six years. He also has ties with Penland, as well as Chihuly’s school in Washington State, Pilchuck Glass. His aesthetic carries clean lines inspired by modern and utilitarian design. Many of his vessels and sculptures, as well as lighting, have been commissioned by local restaurants in the Asheville area.

This event is the first in a series of glass-focused happenings at the Southern Highland Craft Guild’s gallery in Biltmore Village. The event is free and located at 26 Lodge Street, Asheville, NC 28801. Parking is available in the rear of the building, or down the street in the garage. The gallery features nearly 200 makers from the Southern Highlands.

Editor of Carolina Arts Drops Another Ball From Coverage in Our Jan. 2018 Issue.

January 9, 2018

OK – here’s another exhibit which fell victim to my recent dance with cancer. I don’t know if I dropped the ball or Brevard College did, but I’m taking the blame on this one too. I know we were sent something by the artist or the college and I can’t find it. But I did find this image floating around Facebook today. So here it is. We don’t usually run images like this, but this is the exception – there is always an exception – one kept me in the hospital for a week I did not plan on.

We will seek out and join national and international print organizations. We would love to have many members.


Print by Margaret Peery

Louis Wright, collector and initiator of the group will speak on June 2 at the earlier end of the evening about his love of print works, his collection and his hopes for this organization.

Works by the founding members of the organization (as we started in 2013 but never launched!) will be on the walls. See our site (www.imprimaturcharleston.org) for the list of artists.

Invite all the printmakers you know. Invite all the fine art print collectors you know. Bring all interested individuals!

The Piccolo Spoleto Sundown Poetry group will come after the poetry reading (about 7:30pm) so we will have a wonderfully diverse group. There is a garden out back for conversation and relaxation so hope for a breeze!
