Off The Wall at Rhetorical Factory

Rhetorical Factory Asheville

Friday July 17th Rhetorical Factory will be featuring the art of Cindy Kunst of CLicKs Photography. Kunst has been creating photographic art in Asheville for years, both journalistic and abstract. So much of how she uses her camera is inspired by her ability to connect with her subjects; reading the CLicKs website and blog will give you an idea of all the varied events and niches of Asheville culture she is a part of. Just a few years ago Cindy hired Rhetorical Factory to make a screen print for her photography uniform. Bethany Adams, owner and artist of the local shop, took a photo of Cindy’s first camera ever, and made a design. The Clicks uniform shirts are printed at Rhetorical Factory with that camera design and the Clicks logo on second hand clothes that Cindy supplies. The camera print is a part of the Rhetorical Factory original collection as well.

When Adams invited CLicKs to be the featured artist for the store in July the creative wheels started to turn. Kunst was inspired to get her art “off the wall” and came to Rhetorical Factory with the idea for another collaboration: fabric printed with her art, sewn into clothing by Bethany Adams. The two have been developing the idea ever since, and it will culminate with the opening at Rhetorical Factory at 444 Haywood Road in West Asheville Saturday night with refreshments starting at 4pm and music by local guitarist Bryan Steele from six to nine pm. Garments at the showing will be samples, with any of the clothing styles available in any of the featured prints, made-to-order. The walls will bear our collaborative photography surrounding the collection as well as unique glass tile pieces Kunst has designed to complement the collection will also be for sale. You are invited to come get inspired by local art!

Master the Many Uses of Miso

Sometimes I really love the perks of writing about food. I'm an information junkie. If I had a chance, I'd watch documentaries 24/7. I love understanding how things are made and how they work. One of my favorite food hosts, Alton Brown, made 13 seasons of these Bill Nye-esque cooking shows explaining the details of how different ingredients work and how the chemistry and science of cooking can free you of recipe books forever. So when I was offered the chance to tour a miso factory, I was pumped.

Local Radio Station WPVM Experiences Hostile Takeover

WPVM radio

Since 2003, 103.7 WPVM has been a commercial free, listener supported, volunteer based radio station. Known as the the progressive voice of the mountains, this registered non-profit was founded to provide independent media to the Asheville community. Formerly licensed to the Mountain Area Information Network (MAIN), the station was an integral part of MAIN’s alternative media vision to enable citizens to financially support non-corporate news, music, and public affairs programming. As of May 8th, 2015, an FCC transfer of the station was complete which means that WPVM is now operating as its own not-for-profit-entity.
