BFA exhibit by Carson McNeal on display through Dec. 10

A bachelor of fine arts senior thesis exhibit in wood by Carson McNeal will be on display now through Dec. 10 in the Appalachian Center for Craft’s Gallery One.

An artist’s reception is set for Friday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m.

McNeal’s current body of work focuses on using materials that are environmentally responsible. Understanding how and where the wood is harvested is central to this process.

“My furniture uses wood’s natural aesthetic to enhance my designs,” he said.

The Craft Center is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). To get there, go south toward Smithville on Highway 56 and turn immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
