Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery 86 is hosting an artist’s reception for the Haywood Community College’s professional craft faculty and 2012 graduates from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 5 in conjunction with the Waynesville Gallery Association’s Art After Dark event.

Each faculty member in wood, fiber, clay, metals and design have chosen one signature piece to exhibit.

Instructors are Robert Blanton, Caryl Brt, David Burnette, Terry Gess, Steve Lloyd, Sam Nichols, Amy Putansu, Journel Thomas and Brian Wurst.

The work will remain on exhibit through Oct. 20. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
