Art in the Bakery

The north wall of Bracken Mountain Bakery is graced by a 19 foot oil on canvas painting by nationally reknown artist Larry Gray.    Larry’s paintings deal with light, time and space, and reflect his profound reverence for the natural world, especially of the southern highlands.      Larry’s work is featured in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, among others.  We have been fortunate to get to know Larry while he has  been an almost-daily regular to the bakery since he moved to the WNC mountains in 1997.  We are very proud to be added to his list of permanent exhibitions!

Our Winter Schedule is now here!  We will be open  5 days a week (Tuesday  through Saturday) until the beginning of May.  For those of you who wish we were open on Mondays year round – this unsolicited video from a customer  may strike a familiar chord!

Parlez-Vous Francais?

A group of Francophiles has been meeting at the bakery for several years to have coffee and croissants and practice speaking French together.  The group meets every Thursday from 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm.   It is a diverse group of folks, speaking at all levels of French – from 1st level high school French to fluent native French.  They always welcome newcomers –  for a one time visit, or to join the “club”.  Feel free to drop in if you would like to brush up on your French.
