If you can't get to the Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina (something I have longed to do), you can at least experience Penland at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where "The Penland Experience" exhibition features work by nearly 50 artists who have taught or been students there.

Also with work in the show: Ken Baskin, Deborah Brackenbury, Robert Brady, Elizabeth Brim, Cynthia Bringle, Edwina Bringle, Hunt Clark, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Susan Dewsnap, Ben Dory, Judith Duff, Robert Ebendorf, Dustin Farnsworth, John Garrett,

Sculptor Baskin will give a talk at UALR at 6 p.m. TONIGHT, Jan. 21, and Jean McLaughlin, director of Penland, will give a talk with Steve Miller, letterpress artist, at 6 p.m. Feb. 25, both in room 161 of the Fine Arts Building. 
Penland was founded in 1929 by Lucy Morgan as an outgrowth of a craft-based economic development project. UALR has been actively collecting Penland artists's work for the past three years because of its Applied Design curriculum.
