The Mountain Heritage Artisans Gifts & Gallery opened November 2018 in downtown London, Kentucky, to feature local artist creations and to draw attention to the Cumberland Valley’s culture and heritage.
Gourd artist Cheryl Fuller says, “It has been exciting to see all the new items coming into the gallery, and we are working hard to make sure everyone knows we are open to the public and that we also offer classes.”
The gallery features art from over 20 local artisans representing contemporary, traditional and experimental forms. Fine art, folk art and original handmade crafts include everything from original paintings to handcarved musical instruments, pottery and leather works, stained glass and much more.
The nonprofit 501(c)3 cooperative effort relies on donations to promote the work of the juried members of the Mountain Heritage Artisans Guild, which was founded in April 2011.
Group or private classes are taught at the gallery by accredited current and retired art teachers and veteran artisans. Classes include acrylics, fabric and watercolor painting, jewelry making, basket weaving, stained glass, wood craft and other requested classes.
The public can shop for gifts at the gallery, located at 1006 5th Street in London, Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Learn more at Facebook: Mountain Heritage Artisans Guild.
