Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! We are excited for the future of One of a Kind Art Gallery as well as Micaville, which is growing to become a destination for locals and tourists, offering food, music and art!

2013 saw some major changes. This past spring, The Ice Cream Deck, formerly in Burnsville, opened for business in the annex. They serve delicious, handmade ice cream from The Hop in Asheville and hope to be expanding their menu as 2014 progresses.

Local musician and luthier David A. Wiseman has set up his shop, Dragon's Tone Music in the loft. David makes handcrafted Appalachian dulcimers, repairs stringed instruments and offers lessons in guitar, dulcimer, and autoharp. Every Saturday morning starting at 10, Dragon's Tone Music hosts a music jam. All are invited to play, sing or dance along.

The biggest change to the Gallery has been a change in ownership. Since 2011, Lynda Gayle Banner, Estela Shackelford and Kari Weaver have worked hard to develop a successful gallery of local art.

In June, Lynda Gayle stepped down so that she could divide her time between helping her husband in his new business venture of running Kirkwood's Cafe (formerly Mary Jane's Bakery and Cafe) and being a studio potter.

In October, Estela retired again (the first time was from nursing a few years ago), so she could spend more time in her clay studio as well as pursue other interests.

Kari has eagerly taken over full ownership, and she remains passionate and dedicated to exhibiting and selling the best local art.

As we head into our third year of business, we've decided to keep the Gallery open during the winter months. Our winter hours are posted at the left, and please call ahead if the weather is bad.
