CoryDoors — The Artisan Center #ThursdayDoors

Happy Thanksgiving, to them as celebrates it. To them as don’t — Happy Thursday!

One thing I’m thankful for is The Artisan Center. How many hick burgs like this one have an art gallery in the middle of it, I wonder?

ArtisanDoorI stopped by there last Thursday to take these pictures, and met the brand-new Gallery Director, Nicki Asberry. She let me poke around and take some pictures.

There’s a big gallery-room just inside the door, and another just off the hall. Here’s the one off the hall.

ArtisanGalleryAs you can see, there’s painting, sculpture, woodcraft, photographs, jewelry…. They even have books by the Southern Indiana Writers, including stories by moi! They have classes, exhibitions, competitions, and celebrations. It’s pretty amazing.

That sculpture in the middle doesn’t look very pretty, but it’s freakin’ gorgeous! It’s a copper-and-glass-beads piece by Leah Porter. Here’s a closer look, which also doesn’t do it justice.

ArtisanLeahI snapped a pic of these chairs on the way out.

ArtisanChairsI’m not sure if the entire chairs are crafted, or just the woven bits. I know the little stool is crafted.

Awesome place, always filled with beauty, interest, and often with local music, too.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
