Artists’ Hub of the ACE Basin (AHAB) is a business open daily, Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until9:00 p.m. that hosts a variety of artists using different mediums, who are able to give lessons and sell their crafts. Artistic talents are displayed throughout the building, from wooden bowls and boxes to jewelry, paintings, embroidery, wreaths and sewing. Every inch of the space contains items that would make excellent gifts or décor for the home.
Artist’s Hub Owners Jeannie Langston and Heather Whitten said they are excited about their grand opening event. “We weren’t sure how many people would come, but it has been steady, all day, and we are happy that so many people enjoyed coming in,” said Langston.
The Artist’s Hub will feature weekly and monthly classes. The classes offered include are Tulle Wreath Making, Ceramics, Pine Needle Basketry, Wheel Throwing and guitar, just to name a few. There is also space for birthday parties, musicians, art and music lessons, parties, poetry readings or karaoke. The hub also has a stage that can be used.
