Art show to feature North Carolina artist

Written by 

The upcoming Village Square Art & Craft Show on Sept. 1-2 at Kelsey Hutchinson Park and Highlands Village Square in Highlands will feature more than 70 artists from the region, including Marcus Thomas of Weaverville.

Thomas’ work is created with intricate, life-like details and extraordinary composition and creativity. As a quadriplegic, Marcus paints all his works by holding a paintbrush in his mouth.

At the age of 26, a snow skiing accident broke his neck and left him paralyzed below his neck.

At the arts and crafts show, Marcus will demonstrate his painting techniques.

Visitors will find traditional mountain crafts as well as fine art/photography, folk art, yard art and everything in between. Fressers will be open for breakfast and lunch in the square, and there will be face painting and live music both days.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
