Summer workshop exhibit runs through August 3 at TTU's Craft Center

An exhibit featuring an extensive variety of works by more than 50 visiting summer workshop faculty will be on display through August 3 in Gallery One of the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University.

The artists come from across the United States and represent a wide range of functional and conceptual fine craft in clay, fibers, glass, metals, wood and mixed media.

The intensive summer workshop program kicked off on Monday, and the season of five-day programs will run for eight weeks, through the first week of August.

Workshops accommodate all skill levels — from beginner to studio professional — and room and board is available. All TTU faculty, staff and students who register at least one month prior to the first day of a workshop, a 50 percent discount is available.

To get to the Craft Center, take Interstate 40 to Exit 273, turn south toward Smithville on Highway 56 and turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge.
