Glassville In Asheville!

To All Glass Artists of Western North Carolina! A great opportunity is coming up this August. Do you feel the galleries there have not given you enough notice? Have installation work and haven’t found a place to show it? Are you an established artist who wants to support an important effort ? The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design is offering you a prominent downtown Asheville, NC venue this August with the intent to create and reinforce the strong glass community in and around Western North Carolina.

On Thursday, Aug. 6 and Friday Aug. 7 they will be hosting “Glassville In Asheville!”. This will consist of 30+ glass artists showing their work within the 24,000 sq ft space.

Sculpture, vessels and installation work will be the focus here. There is a minimal cost. Why show at such a short venue? Because Thursday eve at the opening will be the 112 collectors from the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, the national glass collecting group.

This is your chance to finally get your work seen by folks who know what they are seeing and can truly appreciate it. Space is very limited, already 1/3 full. While everyone else argues as to whether this is a good deal or not, sign up to reserve your space! It’s first come, first serve. Contact Grace Reff at or 828/785-1357 x105 to find out more info!
