The Kingsport Senior Artisan Center will be hosting an open house on Tuesday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Lynn View Community Center, located at 257 Walker St.

Established by the Kingsport Senior Center in April 2010, the Kingsport Senior Artisan Center provides a Consignment Gallery for regional artists and craftspeople ages 50 and older to market and sell their creative artwork.

Located in the Lynn View Senior Center Branch Site, the Artisan Center offers patrons a variety of juried art works including pottery, painting, basketry, wood crafts, knitting, crocheting, photography, jewelry and more.

“The Artisan Center not only displays your art but has also gotten me into two craft fairs so far,” said John Sinnette, senior center member. “Also, because we are members, we get reduced fair fees. I highly recommend you join.”

The Senior Center invites all Kingsport residents to come meet the artisans and see the newly renovated Artisan Center. Refreshments will be available, and music will be provided by The Ukulele Strings.
