Exhibit: Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual
November 7 @ 8:00 am - December 8 @ 5:00 pm
“Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual,” an exhibition showcasing varied examples of both traditional and modern styles of Cherokee art and historical photos, will be on view through December 8 in UNC Asheville’s Blowers Gallery.
The Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual is the oldest Native American artists’ cooperative in the U.S. and was founded in 1946 in Cherokee, North Carolina. The legendary artistry, design, and durability of Cherokee crafts are admired throughout the world, and Qualla has played a key role in keeping those traditions alive while encouraging experimentation and innovation. The current exhibit, created by Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center, also includes many informational panels of crafting traditions of the Cherokee.
