Here and There, Contemporary Sculptural Ironwork
September 25 – October 30
Every year, Toe River Arts hosts a Blacksmith Exhibition in conjunction with the annual Fire on the Mountain Festival which takes place in April. Due to the pandemic the festival was canceled in 2020. Because of the cancellation, Toe River Arts recognized the need to adapt and hosted a virtual exhibition of blacksmith work. Elizabeth Brim was featured as the master blacksmith in both 2020 and 2021. Regrettably, the live festival event was cancelled again this year, so Toe River Arts made the decision to try something new. This year, the Blacksmith Exhibition will be hosted in the fall, September 25 – October 30 and curated by Elizabeth Brim. This is an exciting departure from Toe River Arts’ usual Blacksmith Exhibit which is normally open to all blacksmiths. Toe River Arts will return to the original format in 2022.
The exhibit is titled Here and There, Contemporary Sculptural Ironwork. The exhibit will include: Warren Holzman, Philadelphia, PA, Bill Price, Memphis, TN, Hoss Haley, Spruce Pine, NC, Zack Nobel, Asheville, NC, Andrew Meers, Bakersville, NC, Peter Braspeninx, Casnovia, MI, John Winer, Mountain City, TN, Bill Brown, Linville Falls, NC, Rachel David, Waynesville, NC, Maegan Crowley, Dolores, CO, Jim Cooper, Bakersville, NC, Maria Cristalli, CleElum, WA, Megan Martin, Bakersville, NC, Andy Dohner, Bakersville, NC.
