Digging deep into its mission to cultivate the creative economy, the Southern Highland Craft Guild opens its newest exhibit, A Legacy of Makers and Mentors, at the Folk Art Center this Thursday, November 17. Showcasing over 40 pieces of work from its Education Center member University of North Georgia, the exhibit ranges in experience and talent. The makers are from different sectors in their careers and with the university; students, professors, and alumni will have their work on display. Though the university has been an active member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild since 1977, this is its second collaborative effort for marketing and education in the main gallery. The previous exhibit was over seven years ago.
