Smart Bets: Village Art & Craft Fair

Every August, more than 100 artisans from across the Southeast come together on the grounds of All Souls Cathedral in Biltmore Village and share their work at the Village Art & Craft Fair. Now in its 46th year, the latest iteration of the gathering highlights 26 first-time exhibitors from 16 states and 36 artists from Western North Carolina, who, along with other participants, will be available for one-on-one conversations about their craft. Ceramic, fiber, jewelry, metal and wood creations will be available to browse and purchase, along with two-dimensional art and other mediums. The fair runs Saturday, Aug. 4, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 5, noon-5 p.m., rain or shine. Free to attend. Photo of scrap metal sculpture by Josh Price courtesy of the artist
