Mountain Artisans Shows "Where all the good artist are" ! 

      The Mountain Artisans shows are famous for featuring just the biggest selection of authentic handcrafted art and craft in this area.

     Mountain Artisans promotes two events each year.  The July "Summertime" show is held the week end closest to the Fourth of July.  The "Hard Candy Christmas", a Mountain Christmas Tradition, is always the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. 

 Both events are held inside in the Western Carolina University Ramsey Center in scenic Cullowhee, North Carolina.

It is centrally located only 45 miles southwest of Asheville;  just minutes from The Great Smoky Mountains.

 In July, a mountain artisan will be outside demonstrating the vanishing art of blacksmithing .

The best chainsaw sculpture around will be  out there too, skillfully shaping amazing bears and signs.  David Ammons learned chair caning from his father and will show you how it is done.

Each exhibitor at these shows are carefully screened to be the best in their field.  

You can  purchase original art  and meet the artist who made it!

There is a wide selection of heritage craft . Several of the old time quilters still make them one at a time just for you.  Goat milk soap, pine needle baskets, white oak baskets, hand tied brooms and cotton woven rugs are hard to find and all here.

Some of the most skilled  doll craft, leather craft, and master jewelers around exhibit with us. Many of the Gourd artists have won awards in competitions.

 Shoppers love the Folk Art , one of a kind birdhouses, and designer fabric  purses . We have just the best artists in  pottery and clay art.

 In July , the Lucas family will be playing the old songs on the psalteries they make and showing you how easy it is to learn !

It is worth the drive to get here.

You will understand why everyone who attends our shows just says : "Wow" when they attend and plan to come back next year!
