Within the Asheville Art Museum’s Collection reside decorative arts by two of the most beloved and well-known Arts and Crafts style artists of Western North Carolina. Join Alexis Meldrum, curatorial assistant, as she takes you on a tour of the current exhibition Walter B. Stephen Pottery: Cameo to Crystalline where you will see the early cameo works of Nonconnah pottery, learn about Stephen’s experimentations in glaze, and examine his later pottery from Pisgah Forest. Whitney Richardson, associate curator, takes you on a behind the scenes preview of the forthcoming exhibition Useful and Beautiful: Silvercraft by William Waldo Dodge. Opening his first handwrought silver shop in Asheville in 1924, Dodge promoted his line of household goods that reflected the Arts and Crafts values of handcraftsmanship.
