The artisan village was started a year ago in an effort to bring the fine arts into the community, said Larry Lean, UMO artist in residents and co-coordinator of the artisan village. In 2016, the village offered insight into the art of glassblowing, skill required to craft pottery and the artistic flair of painting. "It was really well-received last year, so we wanted to make this an annual event," Jenkins said. "It was something new and cultur- al and different to bring to the Pickle Festival." Demonstrations are planned throughout the day by potters and painters, Jenkins said. "One of the potters will have his own wheel out there and will be doing some demonstrations," Jenkins said. "One of our painters will be painting live at our pickle festival." More than a dozen artisan booths are planned inside the vil- lage this year, she said. The booths will offer a unique experience for visitors to the annual festival, Jenkins said. Continued from 36 VILLAGE There will be 15 people participating the 2017 N.C. Pickle Festival naturalization ceremony.
