Printmaking, photography and pottery

With a handful of new exhibitions now open and on view throughout the summer, the Western Carolina University Fine Art Museum at Bardo Arts Center presents art in a variety of forms — printmaking, photography and pottery.

• The exhibition “Ancient Forms, Modern Minds: Contemporary Cherokee Ceramics” offers a preview to Western Carolina University's 2017-2018 campus theme, "Cherokee: Connections. Culture. Community.” This exhibition features the work of 11 Cherokee artists including Joel Queen, Melissa Maney and Bernadine George and brings together both historic and contemporary pottery techniques. Ancient Forms, Modern Minds was organized by the Asheville Art Museum and made possible through the generous support of the Cherokee Preservation Foundation. On view through Nov. 10, the WCU Fine Art Museum will be the last venue to host this important touring exhibition.  

All WCU Fine Art Museum exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public; please note that hands-on workshops may have an associated cost. The museum is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. The WCU Fine Art Museum at Bardo Arts Center is located at 199 Centennial Drive on the Western Carolina University Cullowhee Campus.
