May 21 – August 20, 2016 | Sandra J. Blain Gallery
The annual Instructor Exhibit is held every summer in honor of Arrowmont’s workshop instructors, who are nationally recognized artists and university faculty. These individuals help further Arrowmont’s mission of enriching lives through art and we are privileged to celebrate them and their work. With over 150 classes being offered in a plethora of media, instructors and students come to Arrowmont from across the globe to share skills and ideas- fostering new thinking, artistic growth and creative camaraderie. The exhibit showcases work from over 90 of the visiting instructors, and is a diverse and engaging representation of the techniques taught at Arrowmont including woodworking, glass, ceramics, painting, fiber and textile work, metals, jewelry, book arts, photography and printmaking.
In June, an interactive element will be introduced to the exhibit. Using a smart phone, viewers can watch videos of instructor demonstrations given during their Arrowmont workshop. To view videos, download the “QR Code Reader” application and scan the QR code posted by the instructor’s work in the gallery. New video QR codes will be posted throughout summer and fall workshop sessions as instructors visit campus.
