Junaluska spotlighted at arts and crafts sale

The Junaluska Woman’s Club Creative Endeavors Arts and Crafts Show and Sale is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 13, and Saturday, Aug. 14, at Harrell Center Auditorium and Bistro Café in Lake Junaluska.

More than 30 artists and crafters from several states will display arts and crafts for sale from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Many crafters have donated art featuring images of Lake Junaluska for a silent auction, including stained glass, wall hangings, wooden trays, jewelry, car license tag, Junaluska baskets, Junaluska church birdhouses, gourd art, a Junaluska driftwood arrangement and much more.

Also up for bid will be watercolor prints of scenes around the lake and a framed picture depicting seasons at Junaluska in photographs. There is a Glenn Draper Doll, which is the first in a series of Junaluska “Notable Person” dolls.

Anne Stewart, member of the North Carolina Basketmakers Association, will be making traditional baskets, some with contemporary designs. Fabiola Diaz, a 16-year-old from Highlands, will make quick or detailed sketches of individuals or do drawings from attendees’ pictures by consignment.
