Off the Clock: Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts Staff Exhibition
When they aren’t busy creating the “craft school experience” for students and instructors across the globe, many of Arrowmont’s staff members are artists and makers themselves. A passion for the arts unites the people who work at the School, and a majority of Arrowmont’s staff are renowned for their creative practice outside of the office.
Off the Clock is an exhibition that aims to highlight the diverse and creative talent found within the staff at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The participating staff artists include: Heather Ashworth, Vickie Bradshaw, Rebecca Buglio, Nick DeFord, Kelsey Dillow, Michael France, Bill Griffith, Vanessa Hartman, Gracie Herbert, Kelly Hider, Anne May, Bill May, Jim Scarsella, Ernie Schultz, Deborah Sosower, Logan Szymanowski, and Katie Wagner.
Opening Exhibition: Friday, July 5 (First Friday) 6-9 p.m.
Closing Reception: Friday, July 27, 6-8 p.m.
Exhibition will run from July 5–July 31
