During the Ramsey Center Craft Pop-ups, you get the chance to visit with a local artist, talk to them about their craft, and maybe even have a hands-on experience – all in the open air! Just look for a tent and table on the upper quad, and you can drop by at your convenience. It’s a great way to unwind in between classes or even to get inspiration for your own art!
On October 5 (rain date October 7), we’ll be joined by Asheville artist Jenny Pickens. Pickens is a self-taught artist, and has been making art all her life. She works in all kinds of media, including fabric, hand-built pottery, and pastels and acrylics. Pickens’ work has been featured in a variety of articles, galleries, and festivals around the community. She also works in afterschool programs helping young artists curate their talent and love for creating.
