Annual Spring Gallery Gathering
April 25 - 30, 2012
As usual, those unique artists are at it again. We will be celebrating Heritage Days in the upstairs working studios, on the front porch and in the store August 31 through September 3, 2012. We will be posting more information as we firm things up. No idea what you might find in this "Most Interesting Place"!
On most days, in the Upstairs Working Studio areas, you will find a number of our artists creating their "Most Unusual" items that will grace the Gallery downstairs when they are complete. We are happy to answer your questions about our crafts and explain the processes we use. Or you may find us collecting leaves, roots, blackberries and flowers from the back hillside or just relaxing while we eat lunch. It is a "unusual place" with lots of fun and laughter. Take the time and visit us in our "natural habitat".
Year round in Louis Jones' Original Studio.
The Studio room with its wall of wonderful windows has become a history room for us. We have collected, borrowed and been given many wonderful pieces of Smoky Mountain history. Among them you will find a collection of Louis E. Jones paintings, circa 1930's, the original artist, builder & resident of Cliff Dwellers. It is especially gratifying to see these paintings in the studio where many of these treasures were created.
Also in the Upstairs Studio, see our collection of vintage postcards both of the Gallery in its original location on the Parkway and of Gatlinburg in the '1930s and 40's. Also we have on display, pictures from the moving of the building from its downtown location. What an undertaking!
New to our history room, is a collection of short motion picture clips of the mountains, the people of East Tennessee, Gatlinburg in the early days and the industrial undertakings of the time. We estimate from the type of cars, the machinery being used and the fact that horses and wagons share the roads with the few cars seen, that the clips were taken in the 1920's or early 30s.
This historic building was constructed in 1933 on the main street in downtown Gatlinburg. It was the home, studio and gallery of artist Louis E. Jones. In 1993, the structure was moved to this site. Today, the gallery showcases contemporary & traditional artwork of over 60 local artists.
