thumb Chad_CullyThe six resident artists at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft will showcase some of their best work in their annual exhibition until April 29.

The show includes functional and conceptual craft across a variety of media. Bryce Brisco, ceramics; Ellie Richards, wood; Amanda Ross, fibers; Linda Tien, exhibitions; Chad Cully, glass; and Jason York, metals, will display their work in the Craft Center’s Gallery Two.

The artist in residence program at the Craft Center gives emerging professional artists a chance to develop their craft. Appointments range from one to three years in each of the studios: clay, glass, metals, wood and fibers, as well as a resident to help with exhibitions. The paid positions give artists with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, or its equivalent, a chance to mentor college students and develop their talents in the Craft Center’s facilities. Resident artists are selected from a national pool of applicants.

The Craft Center galleries are open to the public daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is conveniently located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on state Route 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
