You can schedule a time to tour his studio and watch from the viewing balcony as he creates, just give him a call to schedule a tour. BUT… I highly recommend his Hot Summer Nights concert series. Get to know locals and visitors as you enjoy live music and truly experience David’s time-honored techniques as he produces bold, vibrant sculptures along the shores of Lake Chatuge.
You’ll definitely want to take home a souvenir so be sure to explore the Goldhagen Gallery during your visit. David’s sculptures, fused glass, ornaments, platters, and all of his creations make a truly one-of-a-kind gift that is sure to be a conversation piece. If you’re traveling, no worries! Goldhagen Art Glass Studio will happily ship your items for you.
Most impressive is The Whole Store’s wall of bulk herbs and resources to help you make wise decisions regarding your health. Be sure to watch “Backyard Remedies” show on our local Cable TV channel 49 and tune in to WKRK the 1st Thursday of the month at 10:30am with The Whole Store!

School may be out…but The MAC Summer Art Program is in! Throughout July, art classes are offered to kids in downtown Murphy. An exhibition featuring these young artists and their work will be Friday August 2, 5:00-8:00 pm during the Murphy Art Walk.
Dr. George Gaines of Gaines Concealed Carry has been living here in North Carolina for just over a year, enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. You’ll see him out and about at our Chamber AfterHours, meeting new folks. While he may be new to our community, he has been providing firearms training to students of all levels for over 6 years after his cousin Henry got him back into competitive shooting. He loves to teach others about gun safety, stressing that a gun is a tool that everyone must learn to use safely.
Each month Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce hosts an AfterHours networking event. Bojangles’ will be our host on July 18th in Murphy from 5:00 – 7:00pm. We invite our members, local businesses, and entrepreneurs to join us! We offer door prizes and select our Member of the Month and Ambassador of the Month from those in attendance. Be sure to bring your business cards and stay a while!
