Our markets are different in that they comprise a diverse collection of handmade makers, boutiques, vintage and unique items you can’t find in stores. Attendees can enjoy these hundreds of Makers while also enjoying food, drinks and photo walls that create memorable experiences.
 
In turn our markets have an impact on local communities and naturally revitalize local economies.

Black Mountain Old Depot Art by the Tracks

Art By The Tracks

2019 Art by the Tracks
Saturday, October 26th,
10:00am-5:00pm.
Sutton Ave., Black Mountain, NC

Please join us for the 22nd year of Old Depot’s Art Show in downtown Black Mountain, NC on Sutton. Ave this year on Saturday, October 26th, 2019.

Each year the Old Depot sponsors two juried art shows, one in the spring and one in the fall. Our Spring Art Show is always the first Saturday in June, and our Fall Art Show is the last Saturday in October, in the heart of leaf season. We highlight extraordinary art and craft from throughout the region in this renowned juried art show.

From the 1930’s to the mid 1950’s the town was home for Black Mountain College, which still claims alumni of worldwide renown in the arts. More and more, the town is becoming a center for arts and crafts, antiques and furniture, which attracts tourists from throughout the nation for its unique offerings.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains just 15 miles east of Asheville, Black Mountain has long been a rich and varied arts and crafts community.

The Old Depot Association uses the money earned from booth fees for this show towards heritage art grants for schools within the Swannanoa Valley! Each year we contract a local school kid to do the poster art. The 2019 poster art was done by Willow Garrison of Art Space School.

For the 15th anniversary, many women whose friends have been encouraging them to come for years, are joining us for the first time. Others who have been with us for one or more conferences over the years, are returning to immerse themselves once again in this unique experience of woman-centered learning and connection . . . This is the year to bring in your sisters!
