An exhibition featuring the work of Haywood Community College alumni, opens Monday, January 26, 2015 at Handmade in America, downtown Asheville, North Carolina.

Eight recent graduates of Haywood Community College will exhibit work in four media: Crystal Allen and Trish Salmon in clay, Deanna Lynch and Rebecca Porche in fiber, Linda Azar and Becky Burnette in jewelry, and Valerie Berlage and Brandon Skupski in wood.
