The Folk Art Center: If you hop on the parkway off of Tunnel Rd. in Asheville and follow the signs you can find the Folk Art Center. The Folk Art Center is the flag ship facility of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. There are always wonderful exhibits as well as the center's permanent collection of historic folk art pieces. Demonstrators are there regularly to show off their skills and handiwork. The little shop has wonderful gifts/souvenirs from local artists and over our years here I have bought quite a few mugs from from the shop. My favorite mug was purchased there and has gone all over the country and out of the country since I bought it! Yes, I do plan on taking it to Liberia!
