National parks have inspired artist Harlan W. Butt for years, and the results of that inspiration will be on display at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft until Friday, Feb. 17.

Butt will give a lecture about his work at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 30. A reception will follow.

His work is in collections across the globe, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Art & Design in New York City, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. and the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis.

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