Mission:
It is the mission of Maple Creek to provide and maintain a traditional arts education community with a focus on nature, fostering new artists and furthering the heritage of Appalachia.
Results:
Over the last six years thousands of visitors have passed through our doors. Maple Creek has a rich history of several annual events, including spring and fall festivals which are an invitation for artists to show and sell their work while demonstrating their arts to the public. January has been when we gather local potters for a show and July we have dedicated to antique quilts. Then in December is our most popular event of a Christmas Open House. It revives memories of Christmases past and gives shoppers the opportunity of giving unique gifts while supporting local artists.
We have ongoing fundraising to support the construction of guest cabins, to provide housing to visiting artists and students alike, a seperate pottery studio, a painting studio perched high on a ridge at tree top level to inspire the painter by nature, and an amphitheater cut into the hillside, boasting natural and beautiful acoustics, and providing a unique venue for local musicians. We also are in the process of fundraising to acquire adjacent property which will give us the opportunity to build a glass program emcompassing all aspects of glass art, from flamework to blown glass. This property will at the same time open the door to begin education in organic farming, providing space for garden plots, orchards and vineyards.
