The Waynesville Gallery Association is hosting the second Art After Dark of the season from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 6.

The vibrant art scene brings color to Waynesville’s night life, and with four new gallery members, this is a night you don’t want to miss. Enjoy wandering through the galleries and working studios on Main Street, Depot Street, and Frog Level where festive Art After Dark flags denote participating galleries.

Members include the Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery 86, Earthworks, The Jeweler’s Workbench, Burr Studios, Twigs and Leaves Gallery, TPennington Art Gallery, Grace Cathey Sculpture Garden and Gallery, Cedar Hill Studios, The Mahogany House, Art on Depot, and the Village Framer. We are growing! Historic Frog Level, home to the Mahogany House and Art on Depot is a short walk from Main St., where many artists have working studios.

Gallery 86 is celebrating Appalachian Heritage Month with arts and crafts that have been passed down over the years, finding their place in contemporary arts. As part of the “Mountain Made" exhibit, the Bethel Rural Community Organization will have a display of prints and photographs depicting historic locations in the Bethel Community.

Twigs and Leaves will feature Tracey McCracken Palmer’s unique artwork, “Dances with Wools.” She will be demonstrating at Twigs and Leaves Gallery and viewers will learn how she creates her intricately designed and felted wool landscapes.

The Mahogany House and Art on Depot bring vibrancy and color to Frog Level, and are a joy to visit. The Mahogany House represents over 50 artists and has working studios. While strolling down to Frog Level, you can’t miss Grace Cathey’s Sculpture Garden and Gallery. Grace will be demonstrating her stell sculpture techniques, and viewers can watch her create morning glories and bees.
