Diamond Rio band member to kickoff Tennessee Craft Demonstrations Wednesday, Oct 12, at 10:15 am

(Nashville, Tenn.) Honorary Chairman of Tennessee Craft Week, Gene Johnson makes a stop at the Nashville International Airport to highlight the “Arts at the Airport” Craft Demonstrations during Tennessee Craft Week, and to host a “Meet and Greet” with fans. Gene will be at the Arts at the Airport stage where wood artist Brenda Stein will be demonstrating her skills turning wood. Johnson will be greeting fans and signing autographs from 10:15 am – 10:35 am.

The event shines a spotlight on the collective impact craft has on the state’s culture, community and economy. Tennessee Craft Week is aligned with American Craft Week, which promotes the recognition of craft annually in October across the United States.

Providing authentic cultural experiences for residents and visitors each October, Tennessee Craft Week creates a stimulating environment for buyers of craft to connect on a deeper level with artists. It connects Tennessee artists to each other and their communities while expanding the reputation of artistry in the state. The economic and creative impact artists create in both urban and rural areas is also celebrated.

Partners of Tennessee Craft Week include Tennessee Craft Chapters, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, Arts at the Airport, Nashville International Airport, Nashville Convention and Visitors Corporation, and Memphis Convention & Visitor’s Center.
