North Carolina Artists

North Carolina has always been known for the quality of its arts and crafts since colonial days. With no major rivers that large ships could use, the early North Carolinians learned to make pottery, furniture and the necessities of life and developed a crafts trade that attracted artisans from other areas too. Today North Carolina rivals New York and California in the number of artists per-capita.
