SMITHVILLE – Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft will host an exhibition featuring the instructors of their summer workshop programs May 11 – Aug. 3, in the ACC’s Hilltop Gallery.
The annual exhibition will highlight the 22 artists teaching workshops this summer in 41 different classes at the ACC. The artists, recognized nationally and internationally, include the ACC artists-in-residence and Tech faculty.
“All the work represents the different artists teaching workshops this summer – the artists are from all over the country. It’s great to see a wide range of work in one place,” Becca Dilldine, gallery operations coordinator, said.
A variety of workshops are taught within the focused mediums at the ACC in wood, glass, ceramics, fibers, metals and blacksmithing. The works on display showcase specialized techniques that the instructors will teach in the small in-person classes.
“It’s exciting for the workshop participants to see their instructor’s work in person in the exhibition when they arrive at the Craft Center to take a workshop. Workshop season is always a productive and energetic time at the Craft Center,” Dilldine said.
Students of all skill levels are welcome to sign up for workshop classes to learn a new medium or enhance their work with a new skill.
The Hilltop Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sunday 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
