Description:
In the United States and Canada government policies and popular media create a misleading narrative that places people of color at society’s margins. From cultural restrictions to harmful stereotypes the seemingly opposite experiences of the first and most recent people to live on this land share the same struggles. Framed within the Native American and immigrant experience, Crafted Strangers explores how craft can be used as a tool for regaining control over how one chooses to define themself. The seventeen artists featured in Crafted Strangers represent a diverse and unique perspective of racial and ethnic identities within the Americas. While craft has been a common means of expression historically across cultures, Crafted Strangers focuses on contemporary artists reinterpreting tradition. Through the materials selected, the tools used, and the method of display, traditions of beading, weaving, tufting, sewing, collage, braiding and drumming are reimagined. This treatment of the craft genre allows for a sophisticated dialogue that questions how strangeness or otherness are crafted and broken. What does it feel like to be a stranger in home, society, and country? Look beyond first impressions and see identity as an evolving collection of experiences rather than a fixed story. The curators would like to acknowledge that we are guests in the unceded territory of the Tsalagiyi Detsadanilvgi people of what is presently called Asheville, North Carolina. Exhibition will open Friday, September 15th, with a public reception from 5-8 pm. Exhibition open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-6 pm, following. Crafted Strangers is curated by the 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellows Matters Unsettled (Cass Gardiner and Quizayra Gonzalez) and organized by CCCD. The 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellowship was made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. Exhibition programming is supported by Donna and Ralph Briskin. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Benchspace programming is supported in part by Sara and Bill Morgan.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s September show features the work of Judy Rentner, whose brilliantly colored landscapes usher in the fall season. The show runs September 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, September 1, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The artist works in oils, using a palette knife to create intricate texture when applying her colors. Rentner says of her technique, “Painting with a palette knife has been delightful. It has allowed me to use color as I have never done before. The process is spontaneous, intuitive, and freeing. Using this means of applying paint fits so well into interpreting the landscape in a way that captures light and shadow, infusing it with more color than is actually there.” After receiving her art degree, Rentner taught in the California public school system. She has taken many workshops in various media to learn techniques, composition, and color theory. After moving to North Carolina, she taught classes in watercolor, acrylics, and oils. Of her life’s work Rentner says, “When someone asks how long did it take to paint a particular painting, I respond, ‘Oh, about 40 years, more or less.’ That usually gets a laugh or a puzzled look. In truth, it has taken many years of learning and many years of experimentation to settle into the style of painting that I currently use.” She added, “A person can look at a piece of art and appreciate what the artist has done, but evoking an emotional response is altogether different. This is what I desire when someone views my work, a positive, uplifting, emotional response.” Rentner’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of September. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Description:
Raising A Sex- Positive Child in A Sex-Negative Nation is a class for parents; ideally parents of very young children. Raising a sexually healthy child takes forethought. The earlier parents think about ways to develop a strong foundation for children, the better. Raising a sex-positive child takes years to foster, this is not a conversation that happens once or twice between parent and child. It is an open, nonjudgmental, communicative relationship that is cultivated over time. It is best if it starts at birth. This class will equip parents with the information and motivation to start educating their young child. It will help parents understand all that sexuality includes (from body image to reproduction to boundary setting to honoring “no”), think about the values they want to share with their children, and learn concrete ways to promote healthy sexual development. What parents learn in this class sets the stage for open, frank conversations where parents and children talk openly about their body’s (and their bodily functions), love, relationships, This class is taught by Kelley Johnson, Ph.D. Kelley is a fierce advocate for positive sexuality education. She teaches classes for students of all ages, providing the eduction needed to help children grow into sexually healthy adults. She teaches this class to provide answers to some of the most common questions parents have about child-rearing in a sex-positive environment. Kelley was the lead educator for the sex education program provided by the Buncombe County Healthy Department from 1993 to 1998. From 1995-2010 she taught Women's Health and Health and Sexuality at UNCA. She has been in private practice since 2009.

with TOURING SUPPORT TBA
William Clark Green Is not one for pulling punches. Where some songwriters trade in subtlety and dancing around blunt truths with clever feints and metaphor, Clark aims his words straight to the point and, when needed, right through the heart. His music is unrelentingly direct and hard-hitting, too, charged with a palpable rock 'n' roll immediacy that's as evident in his most intimate solo acoustic performances as it is in the full-tilt band shows that have packed rooms across his native Lone Star State from the Blue Light in Lubbock to the world's biggest honky- tonk, Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth. And with the April 21st release of Ringling Road, his eagerly awaited fourth album, Green is set to make his biggest impact on the booming Texas/Red Dirt music scene -- and beyond -- yet.But just don't call him the "Next Big Thing," because as Green makes patently clear on Ringling Road's riotously myth-busting opening track, that's a laugh, buddy. And even with tongue firmly in cheek, William Clark Green is only interested in being real."Oh it's hard to pay your dues when there ain't no money in the bank It's a shameI gotta make it to the show but there ain't no gas in the tankIt's insanewhat you do for a broken heart and some busted strings And everybody saying I'm the next big thing!""I'm actually a little nervous about what people are going to think of that song, and if they'll think I'm being an asshole," Clark admits with a laugh. "And that's not the case at all, because it's actually sarcastic as hell. But we've been hearing that 'you're the next big thing' thing for a long time now -- and I'm guilty of saying the same to some of my songwriter friends who are struggling out there, too. And even though it's always meant in a nice way, you can't help but think, 'What? I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm actually sleeping in my truck tonight!"Not that he's complaining. Green is nothing if not fully committed to his chosen path. Granted, had a few chips fallen a little differently, he could have just as easily -- and happily -- devoted his life to ranching, but fate dictated pretty early on that he was meant to be a troubadour. He may have started taking guitar lessons at 13 primarily out of boredom -- his family had just moved from Flint, Texas to College Station in the summer, and he didn't have any new school friends yet -- but it wasn't long before he developed a keen interest in songwriting. A healthy obsession with his father's copy of Willis Alan Ramsay's classic 1972 debut had a lot to do with that ("That's still the best album I've ever heard, and the reason I use three names," Green enthuses). So did timing: "I remember seeing Robert Earl Keen and Pat Green and even Jerry Jeff Walker at the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater in College Station when I was in high school," he says. "The scene was really kind of in its birth then, and I was right there in the middle, paying attention and really intrigued by all of it."College originally wasn't part of his game plan -- "I was a very poor student, and I still wanted to be a cowboy" -- but after a lead on a ranch-hand job fell through and a miserable two-week stint at a feed lot scared him straight, Green enrolled in junior college and eventually found his way to Texas Tech. He majored in agriculture economics, but spent more time songwriting and playing guitar at every open-mic night and hotel bar gig he could find than actually studying. By the time fellow Red Raider and Texas country rising star Josh Abbott handed him the keys to his Tuesday-night residency at the Blue Light, Green and his own band were on their way."That's when things got really serious for me," Green recalls. "I came out with my first record [2008's Dangerous Man], and it kind of got to the point where I knew if I was going to pursue music, I'd have to give it everything I had, because there's just no room for half-assing it in this business. School went to the wayside -- I ended up graduating, but it took six years because music was my priority. And here I am now at 28 -- about to release our fourth album and hoping to get to five before I'm 30. That'll be a pretty quick turn around, but that's the goal."The aforementioned "next big thing" rumors started up in the wake of his second album, 2010's Misunderstood, but it was 2013's Rose Queen that proved his real breakthrough. Green recorded the album, produced by Rachel Loy in Nashville, at a real crossroads in his career -- with momentum and high expectations at his back but barely enough money in the bank to foot the bill (and that only after a desperate call for help to angel investor Wade Bowen saved the day). "It was a huge leap of faith," Green says today, "but I told the band, 'We're going to pull out all the stops, and we're going to find a way to make exactly the record we want to make and need to make." The end result was a triumph, yielding Green's first three top-10 Texas Radio hits, including two chart-toppers in "She Likes the Beatles" and "Hanging Around" (the former also won "Song of the Year" honors at the fan-voted Lone Star Music Awards).Of course, all of that set the bar even higher for the follow-up -- and Ringling Road delivers in spades. Returning to Nashville to team once again with Loy (Green calls working with the gifted up-and-coming producer "the best decision I've ever made in my musical career"), the band overcame a a couple of early setbacks -- longtime drummer Jay Saldana had recently left for a new gig with Wade Bowen, followed by guitarist Steve Marcus breaking his arm a week before they went into the studio -- to come through like champs under pressure. Saldana ended up coming back as a guest to drum on most of the record (along with new band member Ryan Garza), while the lead guitars duties were initially shared between Nashville session vet Kenny Greenberg and band friend Josh Serrato, recruited out of fellow Texas band Six Market Boulevard for what originally supposed to be "fill-in" duty. By the time Marcus' arm healed up enough for him to join the sessions halfway through, though, Serrato had been promoted from temp to full-time band member. Greenberg ended up staying on for the rest of the record as well."All three of those guys are monster talents on guitar, so It was a really incredible experience to have them all working with each other in the studio," Green marvels. "It all just happened the way it was supposed to, and we weren't going to get in the way of that!"With that formidable triple-guitar threat augmented by Green on acoustic, seasoned band member Cameron Moreland on bass and key assists from Loy and others on background vocals and a few other instrumental tracks, it's no wonder that Ringling Road boasts the fullest sound of any WCG album to date. But as has been the case since day one of Green's career, it's the quality of his songs that ultimately makes the boldest statement. And it's not just the flat- out rockers ("Next Big Thing") and irresistibly catchy, up-tempo numbers ("Sticks and Stones," "Creek Don't Rise," "Going Home") that hit hard, either. Other highlights include "Old Fashioned," a stirring elegy for a bygone Texas ("The interstate's pumping just like a vein full of California license plates"), and the uproarious, Todd Snider-worthy title track, which takes its name from a real road in Green's current hometown of Eastland, Texas. Back in the day, the Ringling Bros. Circus used Eastland as a regular resting stop between shows, where the elephants and other animals were let off the train for a drink and the myriad circus folk would unwind and do whatever circus folk usually do on their nights off. As colorfully imagined by Green and co-writers Ross Cooper and Randal Clay, that was a helluva lot more wild and entertaining than the actual ticketed performances."Ross is a good friend of mine from Lubbock, and Randal is a guy he met in Nashville who was actually a roustabout for 10 years," Green explains. "I mean, what better way to write a song about the circus than to write it with a guy like that? Randal brought in a lot of truths about what really does happen behind the scenes in the circus. To be honest, after I told them about Eastland and the history of Ringling Road, he and Ross just got going on this tangent that was so good, I kind of just sat back and was like, 'keep going!'""Ringling Road," the song, may be a freak-show blast, but the rest of the album is hardly all fun and circus games. "Final This Time" is a devastatingly frank post-mortem of a divorce Green witnessed between two close friends. "Fool Me Once" and "Hey Sarah," two of the three songs (along with "Sticks and Stones") that Green wrote solo, are unflinching accounts of his own firsthand experiences at bad (or at least uncertain) love. And the lead single "Sympathy" (already a No. 1 on Texas radio) offers anything but sympathy to a former lover looking for a shoulder to cry on.Most brutal of all, though, is the hauntingly plaintive "Still Think About You," in which the kind of sympathy Green does offer an ex comes laced with painfully bitter honesty: "Sorry that you fell in love with someone you could never inspire ...""You know, it's not that I'm an asshole," Green says again, laughing. "But I feel like everybody has those selfish feelings sometimes, but they're never said in songs. I actually showed that song -- I had the chorus written but still needed the verses -- to Randy Rogers and Sean McConnell, and they both went, 'oh, that's not my style.' And I thought, 'Well, maybe this is a terrible idea ...'"Before giving up on it, though, Green showed it to one other trusted friend: Kent Finlay, songwriter's songwriter, founder of the legendary Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, Texas, and, not for nothing, Green's co-writer on Rose Queen's hit single "Hanging Around." Sage soul that he was, Finlay -- who sadly passed away on March 2, 2015 after a long illness -- took a shine to the unfinished song at first pitch."I took it to Kent and said, 'I've got this song, and no one seems to like it,'" Green recalls. "But I played what I had for him, and he went, 'Oh, I like that!' And I was like, 'Thank God, finally somebody does!' So we ended up finishing it together, and I'm really glad we did."Taking uncomfortable feelings like that and putting them to paper and writing songs about them -- that's kind of been my staple, really," Green continues. "And that song is about as true as it gets."He pauses on that thought for a moment. "Now, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing," he adds with a laugh, "but I guess the truth prevails! And that makes me able to sleep at night."

Description:
There are plenty of classes on how to write dynamic first sentences, opening chapters, and closing lines, but very few resources to help an author conquer the hardest part of a book: the middle. Encountering the depressing middle work is often referred to as "sag syndrome," and many would-be novelists abandon their projects altogether during this period. This 5-week class is designed to save you from that. During The Art of the Middle, writers with a novel-in-progress will work intensely to add new sections to their book each week by roughly drafting the middle of their novel. Each 2.5-hour weekly class will feature manuscript feedback on your work, critical reading, craft talk, lively discussion, and in-class writing time. You will also write outside of class. In six weeks, you can potentially add six more chapters to your novel. We will dive into short but specific examples of how authors use time (Graham Greene, John Banville), place (Jessie Burton, Patricia Highsmith), character (Donna Tartt, Paul Yoon), POV (Jeffrey Eugenides, Lauren Groff), and backstory (Michael Chabon,Stephen King) to buoy the dense midsections of their novels as well as maintain pace in plot. This will help class participants better understand how to write a novel in which the middle sustains momentum and narrative depth. For more information, including instructions for how to register by check, go to www.flatironwritersroom.com.  About the Instructor: Catherine Campbell is an award-nominated fiction writer and essayist. Her work appears or is forthcoming in The New York Times, The Millions, Kenyon Review, McSweeney’s, The Atlantic, Daily Muse, Arcadia, Drunken Boat, Ploughshares online, and elsewhere. She also ghostwrites articles for high-profile clients in national magazines such as Inc., Harvard Business Review, and Foundr Mag. Catherine earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Writing at UNC-Asheville and her MFA in Writing at Queens University. She was born on a little homestead in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, and lives in Asheville with her son Thaddeus and her partner, the writer Brandon Amico.

Do you want a garden but don’t have anywhere to put one? Have you considered planting fruit trees in your yard, but can’t justify the expense of such a long-term investment in a home you don’t own? This class will explore the use of permaculture principles, strategies, and techniques for non-landowners to build personal resilience and live more lightly on Earth. There are ways we can grow (or forage) our own fresh food, build personal resilience, and develop relationships with our landscapes, even if we are only temporary guests. From guerrilla gardening and grafting to gleaning and wild-harvesting, mushrooms grown in buckets to permaculture in pots, there’s no need to wait for the homestead of your dreams. It could already be in your windowsill, under the kitchen sink, and at your favorite park. $15-25 per person, sliding scale. Dylan Ryals-Hamilton is a permaculture professional with thirteen years of edible and ecological landscaping experience, and has been teaching permaculture design since 2008. Seeing the need for sustainability strategies to be applied at the community scale, he has been involved in community food projects throughout Asheville and beyond. He is currently working as a Fellow of UNC Asheville’s McCullough Institute and with the City of Asheville’s Office of Sustainability to implement policy for edible landscaping on city property. He also works installing and maintaining green roofs for Living Roofs, Inc., a locally-owned company. He has never owned a home.
