These are no lanyards and pot holders. River Gallery's January exhibit showcases handcrafted goods with a modern-minded aesthetic.
The show includes functional pieces by metalsmithers Lynda Metcalfe, Clay Binkley and Robert Taylor and original wood furniture by Chris Barber. Local artist Lynn Portrera and Appalachian-inspired Laurey-Feye Long will show clay pieces, and printmaker Jay Pfeil's works are also included.
The opening reception will be Friday, January 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the show will run through January 31. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
