Event Details

Celebrate the Creativity of the Next Generation

We are delighted by the numerous outstanding submissions for our Voices of the River contest this year. Creative young minds from throughout the watershed have submitted art and poetry inspired by the river. Each submission answers the question “Which French Broad River species do you feel most connected with?”

We are excited to showcase these submissions at this Gallery Event that is free and open to the public. We hope you’ll join us in this celebration of these young artists and poets.

Winners of the contest will be contacted before the event and invited to join us at the gallery to collect their prizes. We have partnered with some fantastic local businesses this year, who have generously donated prizes to support the contest. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the following businesses for their contributions: Friends of the WNC Nature Center, ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters), NC Arboretum, No Taste Like Home, Sparky’s Toys, The Hop Ice Cream, and Zen Tubing.
