The Penland Gallery at Penland School of Craft exhibits work by an ever-changing collective of established and emerging artists who make sculptural and functional objects, conceptual and narrative work—representing the creativity that exists across the state of North Carolina.

Please join us for monthly pop-up events in partnership with Penland Gallery that feature different Penland-trained artists and residents who have works for sale in the Museum Store.

December features Asheville jewelry designer and former Penland resident Laura Wood, who began exploring the human form through dance and made the transition from dance to ornamentation. Her earrings are currently available at the Museum Store. At this pop-up Wood speaks about her creative process and displays more of her product line.
