Majestic Aesthetic of Mountain Art & Craft
Highlands Mountaintop Art and Crafts returns to exuberant life after last year’s absence – June 26 and 27 at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park.
Highlands Mountaintop Rotary Club is pleased to announce that Happy Days Are Here Again and their annual Highlands Mountaintop Art and Crafts show is a go this year.
Two shows are planned this year, June 26 and 27, and August 28 and 29, at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park on Pine Street. Shows go from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. each day, rain or shine (unless it’s a complete washout). Admission is free.
Coordinator Cynthia Strain advises that they will be following state guidelines regarding Covid protections. Those are ever-evolving but Highlands Mountaintop Rotary is committed to making this a safe, as well as fun, event. Their members and volunteers assist with set up so they will be certain that proper guidelines are adhered to.
The scale of the show will hardly be affected as they are expecting between 65 and 85 regional vendors, many local, and the majority from the Highlands/Cashiers/Franklin area.
It’s a one-stop opportunity to see many of our area’–s most talented and creative artists and craftsmen and spend the day outdoors in one of the town’s most picturesque spots.
This show features an impressive lineup of talent of skilled and diverse artists and crafters, several of whom are members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. The range of arts and crafts you can expect to find is extensive and will include items such as leather goods, weaving, basketry, decorated gourds, fine jewelry, carvings, turned wood products, rustic furniture, sculptures, fused glass, books, and exquisite pottery. Local authors will include Jeannie Chambers, Lee Lyons and Isabel Chambers.
Food and drinks will be available on site so plan to have lunch, a snack or an early dinner while shopping. You’ll need that sustenance for energy to carry all the treasures you find home.
