Holston Mountain Artisans

Local Artists Invited to Apply for Membership at Craft Cooperative

ABINGDON, VA., September 30, 2014
Holston Mountain Artisans, formerly the Cave House Craft Shop, announces their October 2014 Jury Session. Area artisans, who submit their work before Oct. 12, will be considered for membership in one of the oldest arts and crafts cooperatives in the country.
For 42 years, the members of the Holston Mountain Artisans have worked to preserve and promote the traditional arts and crafts of the region, offering a wide selection of finely made gift items, home decorations, musical instruments, and local artwork, books, and photography. The cooperative also offers classes and workshops for children and adults throughout the year.
Wood turner Richard Dwyer of Gray, Tenn., joined the cooperative last year after his friends encouraged him to exhibit his work at the artisan center. I juried into Holston Mountain Artisans because its a place where quality craft artists display and sell their work, he said.
Dwyer said the cooperative is a place where artisans embrace camaraderie through their individual talents, and the fellowship among the artists has given the cooperative its strength all these years. The members are willing to share their knowledge and skills, and I find that very supportive. Many artists keep their skills a secret, but I find just the opposite at the artisan center, said Dwyer.
Membership in the cooperative is open to anyone 16 years of age and older who resides within a 50-mile radius of Abingdon. As many as 140 artists are members of the organization.
Categories include fiber arts: sewing, weaving, basket making, crochet, knitting, and quilting; wood working: wood turning and wood carving; pottery: all types of pottery and clay; and metal: jewelry making and blacksmithing. The artisan center does not exhibit fine arts.
Artists must submit five samples from each medium and deliver the artwork to Holston Mountain Artisans Shop at 214 Park Street in Abingdon, Va., before 5 p.m. on Oct. 12. The shop is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
A $10 jury fee is required. Artisans complete applications when their work is delivered to the shop. Applicants are encouraged to include information on how their skills were learned, and what makes their artistic techniques unique.
A jury committee will select new members by Oct. 15 and applicants will be notified within a week.
