Author and curator Anna Fariello received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Folk Art Center during the annual meeting of the Southern Highland Craft Guild recently. Founded in 1930, the Guild represents over 1,000 craftspeople in nine southeastern states.

Fariello was cited for her work at Western Carolina University where, as an associate professor, she developed the online “Craft Revival” archive. She is currently working with Blue Ridge National Heritage Area to develop the Blue Ridge Craft Trails, a project identifying and showcasing western North Carolina craft makers. She began her work in craft as a potter, but her interest in documentation and exhibitions led her into a museum career. In 1999, she was named a Smithsonian Fellow as the James Renwick Fellow in American Craft.

Previously, Fariello was honored with a 2010 Brown Hudson Award from the North Carolina Folklore Society, a 2013 Guardians of Culture award from the Association of Tribal Archives and Museums, and a 2016 Preservation Excellence award from the North Carolina Preservation Consortium.
