May 05, 2020 Arrowmont’s launches re-designed website
and two initiatives to connect artists

Dear Arrowmont Family, Friends, and Community,

Arrowmont’s re-designed website has gone live!

To make navigation easier, you may now access the pages that interest you directly from the home page. However, if you like and are used to the previous navigation system, that system is still active at the top of the home page for the next several months. We invite you to give us your thoughts about the re-design by emailing us, Two new initiatives are underway that showcase the community of artists that make up Arrowmont.

Arrowmont Connections utilizes our social media, website, and communications platforms to support the Arrowmont community. It is intended to foster communications among Arrowmont’s diverse arts and crafts community members, feature work and accomplishments of artists, and shine a spotlight on the value of arts and crafts makers to the entire community. Arrowmont Connections provides an opportunity for artists to be in contact with each other, to showcase and hopefully sell their work, and for Arrowmont to demonstrate our pride in the people who make up our community — instructors, students, volunteers, artists and craftspeople, supporters and donors, and all who have an interest in our school. Arrowmont Connections will be updated weekly with new artists and community members’ endeavors and accomplishments. In addition, participating artists will be featured on Arrowmont’s social and electronic media. If you wish to participate, email your contact information to Deborah or Celeste will be back in touch.

Arrowmont Craft Conversations is a video series that highlights artists in the Arrowmont community. Our partnership with Arrowmont faculty and community members has contributed to Arrowmont’s longevity, growth as a school of arts and crafts, and our reputation as an institution that welcomes everyone. The artists who appear in this series exemplify the characteristics that represent the School — they span generations and are among the most experienced, capable, and innovative in the arts and crafts world. Each of the artists in this series offers insights into their work and their reflections on being a part of the Arrowmont community. Visit to view.

Arrowmont is still closed to outside visitors and most staff members are working remotely. These new initiatives are an effort by all of us here at Arrowmont to maintain our connection with each of you. We will return to campus and resume daily operations when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please know that we value you and our relationship with you.

I encourage you to participate in Arrowmont Connections and Arrowmont Craft Conversations. Most of all, I encourage you to be in touch with us. We want to hear your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Thank you for being a part of our community. Be safe and be well.

Jim Scarsella
Executive Director
