The Museum presents Lunchtime Art Breaks, a series of gallery talks, guided tours and special presentations designed to inform and engage visitors in dialogue with Museum staff, docents, artists and other guest presenters. On May 24, guests will enjoy a guided tour and discussion of current exhibition The Well-Made World with former Special Projects Curator, Lynne Poirier-Wilson.

Hosted by the Museum on a monthly basis, Lunchtime Art Breaks are a unique and engaging opportunity for audiences of all ages to enjoy a guided tour and discussion of current exhibitions. These affordable events are often led by the curator or a featured artist of the exhibition.  Art Breaks are held during the lunch hour, offering visitors and members a convenient and entertaining mid-day break at the Museum.

About the exhibition:

Craft exists as an integral aspect in our ability to create and interpret objects of meaning. By considering key pieces from the Permanent Collection we see a variety of ways in which craft responds to tradition in light of advances in technology and shifts in culture, both in a historic context as well as through more contemporary examples. The exhibition explores the ongoing story of craft and its particular significance to Western North Carolina.
