With the River Arts District Transportation Improvement Project (RADTIP) underway, the City of Asheville is helping to support businesses near RADTIP construction in a variety of ways.

One way to support the vitality of this business district is a $25,000 City-designated fund to help keep businesses open during RADTIP construction. The RAD Vitality Partnership is between the City of Asheville, the River Arts District Business Association and the River Arts District Artists Association. Explore Asheville is also hosting a website at www.explorerad.com as part of this partnership.

This work is being done as a collaboration. Members of the River Arts District Artists Association (RADA), the River Arts District Business Association (RADBA) and the City of Asheville meet monthly to review the needs of the district during construction.

The first priority for the district is installation of RAD wayfinding pole banner signs. Some 114 pole banner signs are being installed throughout the district as part of the collaboration. Area businesses raised more than $24,000 to support this initiative. The banners are designed to last through the construction project.

“The banners are helping with not only wayfinding but also beautification,” said Studio A artist Andrea Kulish, who designed the pole banners. “The banners show the breadth of artists in the district.”

The partnership will also fund a trolley for Second Saturdays and staff 14 Riverside Drive Arts and Culture Center every Saturday during the community-wide Summer of Glass extravaganza happening from now until mid-October.

“The traffic these efforts are generating has been really positive,” said 310 Art studio owner Nadine Charlsen. “We’ve had a lot more local people in the RAD.”

The collaboration between partners for this project is making an impact.

“This collaboration during RADTIP sends the message that we are open for business during construction,” said RADBA President Dave Campbell. “The community engagement has been fabulous for this project and everyone from artists, business owners, the City and other partners have all worked together.”

Designed as a business district development exercise, both RADBA and RADA are working together for the benefit of the district.

“In the past, the district hasn’t always come together. But this has been a great opportunity to use this partnership to bring everyone together for the greater good for the River Arts District,” said River Arts District Artist Association (RADA) President Chalkley Matlack.

The pole banner initiative has the potential to evolve as a method to support businesses past RADTIP construction.

“The opportunity to build the wayfinding component for the RAD at a time that will influence the permanent wayfinding is really exciting,” said Curve Studio owner Pattiy Torno.

Art can be a personal journey and for some, and extremely decompressing, while providing laser-sharp focus and the opportunity for perfectionism.

There is no single set of values or aesthetic traits that defines art.  Art is made up of a highly-diverse range of activities that create visual, auditory, or performed artifacts reflective of the artist’s imagination and mood.  It is created to be appreciated for its beauty or the emotion it stimulates. Art can be a personal journey and for some, and extremely decompressing, while providing laser-sharp focus and the opportunity for perfectionism.

One of the most perfect places in the world for artistic inspiration is Asheville, North Carolina.  The Asheville arts scene is an explosion of performing arts locations, hundreds of artists, and countless art galleries.  Art festivals and events abound in this city and are woven into every aspect of Asheville life.  Art is not hidden away in Asheville; it is shouted from every vantage point.  Walls, buildings, and even underpasses, are canvases for Asheville’s creatives.

It is an exercise in futility trying to list all of the best places to visit, so let’s look at some of the must-see attractions and a few of the unusual. Worth visiting is the Black Mountain College Art Museum and Art Center in the heart of downtown Asheville.  Artists Robert Rauschenberg and Willem de Kooning received their tutelage at North Carolina’s Black Mountain College, a progressive art school opened in the 1930s.  The art center now pays homage to this legacy in the form of art exhibitions, performance arts, film and more.

Another essential visit is to the River Arts District (RAD), a former industrial zone with 22 buildings along the French Broad River that are simply teeming with artists.  The once-polluted area is now celebrated by both businesses and the local artists who work year-round.

For those who like the feeling of self-expression, there are many workshops you can take to fully-immerse yourself in the art experience.  You should pay a visit to The Village Potters, which is also in The RAD.  It is a community, with talented potters in-house, that also nurtures creative self-expression. The fully-outfitted Education Center provides ongoing classes in wheel and hand building, among other classes for beginners and intermediates, plus advanced programs for the serious potter-to-be.  You can even book your own personalized Get Your Hands Dirty workshop for yourself or a group of enthusiasts.

Asheville is famous for its beer, but a cafe latte is almost as popular. And a set of perfect microbubbles can be turned into an art experience called “latte art”, which can be found at any of the coffeehouses nestled in the middle of the RAD. There’s even a Chemistry and Latte Art workshop where baristas learn exercises on how to pour latte art. 

You can also unleash another unusual art treat when you take one of the daily glass-blowing workshops at the North Carolina Glass Center.  Using century-old techniques, visitors can make beads, cups, or even paperweights from hand-blown glass.

Asheville is an art lover’s utopia.  From the countless galleries to the milky taste of unusual latte art at a pastry shop, the experience can be a surfeit of visual experiences that will satiate even the fussiest of art lovers.  It can also be a highly-personal journey where, as a visitor, you can look for a workshop on pottery, the performing arts or anything else creative that meets your whims and fancies. Diverse choices in a diverse city make Asheville a personally therapeutic and inspired experience.

Asheville artist collective joins forces to build homes in Ecuador following earthquake

On Nov. 6, Asheville-based artist collective The Undergrowth takes over the Block Off Biltmore for an art auction directly benefiting the Ecuadorian community.

On April 16, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 on the richter scale devastated the community, resulting in 661 deaths, leaving 27,732 people injured and causing more than $3 billion worth of destruction. The Undergrowth saw this as a call to action. Working with Cardoso Y Asociados, a construction and architectural firm based in Ecuador, they aim to finance the construction of 8 houses for families who lost their homes during the earthquake. The art auction on Nov. 6 aims to fund the construction of the first house; it will take more than $160,000 to build all 8 homes.

Asheville community members can help in a number of ways. First, visual artists can donate their work for the auction. If you are a talented visual artist or know someone with a passion for making a difference in the world through the power of visual art, please reach out to The Undergrowth or at theundergrowthasheville@gmail.com. Art submissions must include a picture of work, title, description, and cost of materials.

Second, community members can attend the art auction and bid on the various works of art. After reimbursing the artists for the cost of materials, all funds will go directly toward building the homes in Ecuador.
Together, We Can Make A Difference. Together, We Rise.

Asheville’s premier landscape painters celebrate the French Broad River’s rise from polluted obscurity to the defining element of the South’s most exciting city at Of Time and the River: the Third Annual Art Show and Gala to Benefit RiverLink. The gala event will be held at the mysterious Zealandia castle, the historic 1908 Tudor Revival mansion on Beaucatcher Mountain overlooking the city of Asheville.

The event grew out of a shared joy that binds artists, activists, river enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs in connecting people to the French Broad River. John Mac Kah, painter and the show’s curator, ascribes the show’s success to the partnership between RiverLink and the contributing artists. “This organization is great to work with,” he notes. “They continue to achieve positive results for the river.”

Likewise, the region’s artists enjoy what RiverLink offers them. Christine Enochs, a contributing oil painter, frequents the many launch sites nurtured by RiverLink. “I’ve been paddling the river for years and always enjoy seeing it from the water itself, immersed in its dynamic power. Painting it is a joy and a challenge, and I am happy to share my work for the river’s continuing health and vitality.”

Contributing area artists are John Mac Kah, Christine Enochs, Paul Blankinship, Dana Irwin, Jason Rafferty, Mark Henry, Bryan Koontz, Tony Corbitt Jr., Caleb Clark, Matthew Good, Deborah Squier, Skip Rohde, Alisa Lumbreras, Cecil Bothwell, Colleen Webster, Brennen McElhaney, Rachel Clearfield, Ben Long, Carol Parks, and Peter Loewer.

The shared purpose of participating artists is bringing engagement with the river through their work. Most complete their work en plein air, remaining at riverside locations while painting and avoiding the use of photographs. Attendees in 2014 and 2015 appreciated not only the spirit of the event but the year’s collections of newly-created artwork, which boasted a variety of approaches and techniques. There were sumptuous botanical renderings of local flora and moody renderings of abandoned riverside buildings in walnut ink brewed by the artists.

At this year’s event there will be a large map indicating the locations where the artists painted their works of art along the river’s 218-mile run that straddles North Carolina and Tennessee. This year’s gala event also features the music of renowned composer and cellist Ron Clearfield, who has recorded with Paul McCartney and Steve Martin. Clearfield brings a modern sensibility to his classical training and is known for his soulful compositions. Whole Foods is graciously providing food, while Sierra Nevada Brewery is donating beer.  5 Walnut Wine Bar is supplying wine.

Zealandia, the gala’s venue, was built by Philip Henry in 1889 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It boasts a grand staircase and oak woodwork, with ample room for paintings by this year’s 18 artists spread over two stories.

Tickets for the event are  available at http://riverlink.org/product/time-river-3rd-annual-art-gala/

RiverLink promotes the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River’s watershed by providing public access to the river through conservation and recreation easements, by reclaiming contaminated land for public use, through greenway development, by creating overnight camping sites, through adaptive reuse of historic structures, by educating the public and students about the importance of the river and by empowering 2,800 volunteers annually. Anyone living in or travelling to Asheville is impacted by their work. Empty a generation ago, now the French Broad River is host to hundreds of paddlers, anglers and tubers on a daily basis. Mirrored by parks on its left bank, the French Broad and its greenway curl through the city like a jade necklace.

What: Third annual Of Time and the River – a benefit art show

When: Friday, Oct. 21, 2016, 6-9pm

Where: Zealandia castle on Beaucatcher Mountain, Asheville

Why: To benefit Riverlink

Asheville is known worldwide for its unique musical expression, diverse array of the healing arts opportunities for spiritual reflection. Now in its third year, the RESONATE festival is set to elevate Asheville’s status as the source for all things sound, wellness and spirit. Held on October 1st and 2nd at the historic YMI Cultural Center, RESONATE will feature two days of workshops and concerts that inspire and empower. RESONATE explores the nexus of alternative healing modalities, the physics of sound healing, cymatics, neurobiofeedback, entrainment, and epigenetics. Further, the event provides a platform for professionals in the healing arts to tune up their toolbox and share their gifts with the community.

RESONATE’s featured headliner, Porangui will be performing “World Soul Music to Move You.” Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over fifteen years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well-being. He has performed for Agape International Spiritual Center, Chopra Institute, Lightning in a Bottle Festival, and played with Rising Appalachia, Nakho and Medicine for the People and more.

Also featured are critically-acclaimed musical artists known internationally for their unique sound and skill. Sound healers Paradiso and Rasamayi have 3 consecutive Best Album of the Year awards and have collaborated in projects and events with luminaries like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Masaru Emoto and Michael Bernard Beckwith. Playing the largest crystal didgeridoo in the world, Paradiso has performed at Carnegie Hall with his partner in life and in music, Rasamayi, known for her master-level skill playing alchemy crystal bowls. Together they weave spiritual soundscapes that carry listeners into profound meditation, where attendees repeatedly report unprecedented and transformative states of meditation.

In the “Ted Talks-inspired” portion of RESONATE, the workshops are designed to deepen our understanding of the relationship between sound, toning and wellness. As a revolutionary entrepreneur with a Doctorate in Audiology, Dr. Mickra Hamilton founded the Apeiron Center for Human Potential in Asheville to help others optimize their potential by addressing the physiological, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic aspects of the human system. She provides expertise in functional fitness, functional nutrition, peak cognitive performance, stress management, subconscious reprogramming and multiple biofeedback modalities.

Dr. Mickra will be demonstrating the healing properties of sound through her workshop “Expanding Consciousness through Embodying Resonance.” Internationally known for decades of study and teachings of the Aramaic language, Asheville resident Dale Allen Hoffman serves as a guide, with toning and breath work, using his working knowledge of the Aramaic language, – before Hebrew or Greek influence, to deliver the core meanings of the ancient information included in subjects such as Yeshua and Mary Magdalene.

Local author, life coach and personal development guide Brian Piergrossi will lead a workshop entitled “Living from the Stillness Within” based on his book The Big Glow.” Additional workshops at Resonate include “Sounds of the Chakras” with Linda Go, “Healing Addiction with Sound” with Kennedy OneSelf, “Science of Mantra” with Matthew Duplessie, and “Intuitive Drumming” with Billy Zanski.

RESONATE also offers several special events prior to the event itself. On September 23rd-25th , Robert Malone of Sound Temple Studios will offer a 3-day certified program in “Intelligent Dance Music Production.” (7 CEUs) On September 29-30th, Connie Williams will offer a “Pranic Healing Level 1,” which is nationally certified for 14 CEUs. On Sept 2nd and 17th, in partnership with Balloons over Asheville, there will be a Hot Air Balloon Ride/Open-Eyed Meditation. A ticket to each of these events includes a ticket to RESONATE in the tuition fee.

In its endeavors to amplify the exploration of consciousness, RESONATE has formed a partnership with Art Studio World, a local non-profit dedicated to helping at-risk youth through a creative-holistic art integration approach to learning. Artists, teachers, and professionals provide the tools these young people need to be successful members of their communities. With support from sponsors, vendors, attendees and friends, RESONATE will positively affect thousands of people on an ongoing basis.
