Enriching lives through art and craft

2024 Instructor Exhibition

May 27 – August 16, 2024 | Sandra J. Blain Gallery

Arrowmont’s workshop instructors are nationally and internationally recognized practicing artists and university faculty. With over 130 classes being offered in a variety of media, students, and instructors come to Arrowmont to share skills and ideas, foster new thinking, and participate in artistic growth and creative camaraderie.

For over 113 years, the historic campus of the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, nestled in the Smoky Mountains, has been a place of education. The spirit of this heritage permeates the grounds, buildings, and even the mountain air.

The early years were about general education in a settlement school setting, but the curriculum was soon added in mountain handicrafts to preserve skills and provide vehicles of livelihood for area residents. In 1945, the signature summer workshop program was launched during a period of revival in craft education and the school was opened to people from all over the United States who traveled to take art classes in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.

That workshop program has evolved into the extensive summer and fall course offerings of classes in contemporary art and crafts.

To honor our instructors and showcase their talent, Arrowmont presents an annual group exhibition. Their work is a true expression of Arrowmont’s vision and mission – to enrich lives through art and craft.
