I can’t believe it is the 25th anniversary of The White House Collection of American Craft. The White House Collection of American Crafts was commissioned by First Lady Hillary Clinton and President Bill Clinton in 1993 as part of the “Year of American Craft: A Celebration of the Creative Work of the Hand.” The collection includes 73 works of glass, metal, ceramic, fiber, and wood, created by seventy-seven of America’s foremost artists. This exhibit celebrates the 25th anniversary of theses contemporary American crafts being displayed in the formal public rooms of the White House.

A Starry Night

A Starry Night will take place Thursday evening, April 27, 2017 at Burntshirt Vineyards. It will be a visually beautiful evening with top notch food by Rae's Cottage Kitchen. The event is envisioned as a wine reception followed by dinner with many of WNC's "stars" who will partake in an evening of close conversations with attendees. Each star will share a dinner table with 8-9 attendees, who will have their pick of star guest when they purchase tickets. The wine reception of the evening will provide a lively opportunity for attendees to mingle with all the stars. We'll truly have a cross generational evening with a diversity of voices from our region.
