Visual Artists in Madison County, North Carolina
The Blue Ridge “hills are alive” not only with the sound of traditional music, but also with the sound of various artists and craftspeople working in their media to create a unique product which displays their particular talent. Potters and ceramic artists are drawn to these mountains because of the inspiration of the natural surroundings and the clay. But, those are not the only type of visual artists that you will find in Madison County. Woodworkers and wood cut artists love to use the wood from the trees in these mountains and fiber artists alike can find natural sources for their creations. And, what better subject matter for drawing, painting (be it in watercolor or oil), mixed-media or photography than the beautiful surroundings or the people of the area. Inspiration is everywhere.
