Explore the art of nature
Close proximity to what could be accurately described as a natural wonderland has inspired Transylvania artists and craftspeople for generations. Traditional Appalachian crafts—pottery, fiber arts, glass blowing, metal and wood working—have long been an integral part of this community’s cultural heritage. But the artists who have flocked to these verdant forests have cast a much wider net, working in a dazzling array of styles and media, whether they’re carving a literal bread box or working way, way outside the box.
Find a one-of-a-kind piece for your collection in one of the nine galleries in downtown Brevard, learn a few tricks of the trade from one of the dozen or more studios within easy driving (or cycling) distance, and get to know some of the inventive and talented artists that make life in Transylvania County such a stunning work of art.
