James Bud Smith
Share:
James Bud carves wood into bears, birds, and other lively figures. He teaches workshops in wood carving, demonstrates carving, and also exhibits his work. “I consider wood carving a fine art, not a craft,” Smith says. Bud grew up in the Big Y community of the Qualla Boundary and graduated from Cherokee High School, where he learned to carve from Amanda Crowe. Smith’s carvings, in a variety of woods, have been widely exhibited and have received recognition nationally. He has exhibited at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Dallas Art Market, the Albuquerque Cultural Center, the Giduwah Festival in Asheville, and the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. He has taught carving at the Cherokee Heritage Weekend of the Swannanoa Gathering and in other settings. Bud has also completed a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Oakland City University.
