Mural exhibit at the Jackson County Courthouse


Painting of the Mural Exhibit

Award-winning muralist Doreyl Ammons Cain is being featured in an upcoming exhibit in the Jackson County Arts Council’s “Rotunda Gallery” at the Historic Jackson County Courthouse beginning July 1.

Titled “On Hallowed Ground”, the exhibit is free to the public and features the original pastel sketch of a new historical Dillsboro mural. The mural will depict some of who lived in Dillsboro in the 1880’s including the third Principal Chief Nimrod Jarrett Smith of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. In addition, detail sketches of the mural and other colorful pastel art work of heritage, landscape, townscape, flora and fauna will be available for viewing.

The exhibit will be on display through July 31 at the Historic Jackson County Courthouse, Jackson County’s most photographed building, overlooking Sylva’s Main Street.

“On Hallowed Ground” is being produced through the support of the community and arts grant from the Jackson County Arts Council and the Asheville Area Arts Council.
