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.

He connects with more than a 500,000 families in running events nationwide, unprecedented in his field."My mission is health and fitness from youth to adulthood," said Tim, a Los Angeles resident who holds a master degree in education. "With so many exciting things in our culture like computers, video games and TV, it's definitely a fun challenge to teach kids about the importance of eating right and staying fit. I really believe the message is getting out there. I'm asked back year after year to more than 40 different races a year."Tim, a dynamic live entertainer, leads a pre race warm-up, running with the children while encouraging them along the way and performs his new extravaganza, "T-Bone's Energize!" T-Bone performs an interactive stage spectacular of music, world-class magic, fitness and mayhem.Tim helped establish David Copperfield's Project Magic at the Los Angeles Children's Hospital and has performed with Harry Blackstone Jr. He is celebrated internationally with performing tours of Nepal, Thailand, Canada, Japan, Israel and Ireland. In the United States he has been featured In the Los Angeles Times and on Late Night with David Letterman, ESPN, NBC, and ABC network programs.Tim's love and concern for children extends across the United States by actively supporting the Special Olympics. He is an inspiration for motivating teachers and students in schools with his fitness pep rallies."Running excites, inspires and enriches children as it teaches them important life lessons like discipline, coordination, teamwork and self-esteem," says Tim. "The best part of being T-Bone is seeing the children's smiles as they cross the finish line. I feel very fortunate to be playing a role in many families lives through fitness. That is the kind of contribution that makes my job so fulfilling!"

Description:

Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida by musical parents, Stephen Evans naturally had the desire to perform music at an early age. He began by forcing his friends to watch him perform to records of his dads band, Four Saints. Stephen eventually learned to play the trumpet in various school bands, sang in the choir, and performed in musicals which increased his passion. Inspired by his brother, Scot Evans, and his regional success in the band, Floating Men, Stephen started his own rock band, Mean Season, in the late 80s where he began honing his songwriting skills on the guitar. After a few years of local success and radio play in Tallahassee, FL, his band moved to Atlanta, GA to try and develop into something bigger. Unfortunately, the band broke up and left Stephen to try his hand at performing solo around Atlanta. Soon the jammed highways of the big city drove him to the beautiful mountain town of Asheville, NC in 1996, where he quickly began soaking in the creative influence of his amazing surroundings. After many years of vacillating between being a professional musician and building a nest in Asheville, Stephen is finally focused on his love for creating and performing music.In June of 2015, Stephen finally released his debut CD Something to Bleed with his band, The True Grits. The True Grits, friends hes known since the early 2000s, are Brian Shoemaker (bass/lead guitar/backing vocals), Sam Hess (drums), and Woodstock (mandolin). They are on Something to Bleed along with special guests Halli Anderson of River Whyless (violin/backing vocals), his brother, Scot Evans of Floating Men (bass on 1000 Roses), and his mother, Barbara Evans (backing vocals on Sound). After performing around Asheville and parts of the Southeast solo and with the band in support of the 2015 release, Stephen Evans & The True Grits are releasing the new EP, Under A Bridge in late September. The record will feature 5 songs of folk rock, and will be available online and on CD. Meanwhile, look for performances by the band and Stephen all around the Southeast.

At 7 p.m. she’ll present “Stories from the Trail,” chronicling her latest adventure – a three-month hike of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in North Carolina. All of the talks will take place in the Sherrill Center Mountain View Room and are free and open to everyone. Pharr Davis has written five books, including three North Carolina guidebooks and two hiking memoirs called Becoming Odyssa and Called Again. Her most recent release is Families on Foot. She has also written articles for The New York Times, Outside magazine, and Trail Runner, and has been featured in The Washington Post, The New York Times, NPR’s Talk of the Nation and CBS’ The Early Show. She is founder and owner of Blue Ridge Hiking Company, a guiding service, and serves on the board of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and as an ambassador for the American Hiking Society. She was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and has covered over 13,000 miles of long distance trails on six different continents. In 2011, she hiked the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days, 11 hours, and 20 minutes, maintaining an average of 47 miles per day and earning the overall (male or female) fastest known time on the A.T. She is the first woman to set the mark. In August 2017, she set off on her latest adventure, hiking the 1,175-mile Mountains-to-Sea trail, with support and meet-ups with her family, husband, Brew Davis, and her 4-year-old daughter Charley and 10-month-old son Gus. The hike, which stretches from Clingmans Dome in Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the Outer Banks, commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, and her talks at UNC Asheville are part of a year-long celebration of the university’s 90th anniversary.

The Church

LinksIT’S A UNIQUE BAND that finds itself cherished as a bona fide legend in the ARIA Hall of Fame while remaining a virtual enigma to the world that knows its name. But maybe that’s no more remarkable than the mystery that continues to unfold within its own ranks.

the church’s accidental signature tune, Under The Milky Way, is like a lighthouse on the brink of a continent forever to be discovered: 25 albums over 35 years and countless diversions that have almost destroyed them a dozen times, yet always reaffirm a mutual commitment to an uncompromising and unparalleled act of creation.

At this stage of the journey, FURTHER/ DEEPER seems both unimaginable and the only option on their endless quest from chaos to resolution. It’s an album of breathtaking new vistas and intense emotions, of sinister black caskets and gorgeous caverns of light, a work born of immense struggle and effortless expression.

“The magic started on day one,” says singer and bass player Steve Kilbey. “Someone strummed a chord or struck a drum or plucked a note and we were off. We wrote and recorded like demons and it was inspiring to feel every member using all his resources in the service of this record.”

Twenty-six songs were born over eight days of exploration in Sydney in late 2013. Guitarist Peter Koppes, recalibrating his personal canvas in the absence of his long-time foil Marty Willson-Piper, drew palpable inspiration from the quartet’s remixed chemistry.

“This new incarnation of the band with Ian Haug has brought a joyous energy to the music we’ve written together,” he says. “The rhythm swings more than usual yet the moods still range from melancholy pop to our modern version of heavy psychedelic rock, as in Laurel Canyon, to the epic gothic-progressive dance track, Globe Spinning.”

From the ominous allure of the lead track, Vanishing Man, to the beguiling tippy toes of Pride Before A Fall; the chiming keys of Love Philtre to the sheer hammer horror Toy Head; the exhilarating breeze of Old Coast Road and the ultimate, panoramic drama of the mini-screenplay that is Miami, FURTHER/ DEEPER delivers on the promise of its title in a combined blossoming of melody, rhythm and audacity.

For Haug, transitioning from the multi-platinum ashes of Powderfinger to join “one of my favourite bands of all time” was an utterly surreal experience, audibly expressed in fantastic new dimensions of the church’s fabled “guitarchitecture”.

“The first song we wrote was Miami, and from there we splintered off into several styles of surreal to intense psychedelia — and songs to make you drive fast,” he says. “It was a trip. And an incredible honour to be accepted so readily into a songwriting as well as guitar-playing role.”

Drummer Tim Powles was again instrumental in the painstaking alchemy that boiled the explosion of ideas down to 12 potent pieces in the early months of 2014, a process that often saw members working simultaneously in separate studios across multiple instruments to produce a work of singular cohesion.

“After an eternal twenty years in the church I marvel more than ever at how we’ve become masters of our own freedom,” he says. “No strings attached, no view to winning a prize. How lucky are we? Or have we earned it? We’ve got better at it too. Or maybe it’s got the better of us. It seems to devour us. Like magic.”

Like magic. As Kilbey sings in the desperate, beatific throes of Delirious:

“These pieces

Are easy

Try to put them together

It’s impossible…”

…and yet…

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.

Description:
From the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Girls of Atomic City comes the fascinating true story behind the magnificent Gilded Age mansion Biltmore--the largest, grandest residence ever built in the United States. Help celebrate the launch of THE LAST CASTLE: THE EPIC STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, AND AMERICAN ROYALTY IN THE NATION'S LARGEST HOME. This is a hometown story from one of Asheville's finest writers. Author Karen Abbott (Liar, Temptress, Soldier Spy) will join Denise in conversation for this not-to-be-missed in-store event. About the book: Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York's best-known families. She grew up in Newport and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George Vanderbilt was one of the most watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House. Before their marriage, the wealthy and bookish Vanderbilt had dedicated his life to creating a spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 acres of North Carolina wilderness. He summoned the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to tame the grounds, collaborated with celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt to build a 175,000-square-foot Chateau, filled it with priceless art and antiques, and erected a charming village beyond the gates. Newlywed Edith was now mistress of an estate nearly three times the size of Washington, DC, and benefactress of the village and surrounding rural area. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore--and secure the future of the region and her husband's legacy. The story of Biltmore spans World Wars, the Jazz Age, the Depression, and generations of the famous Vanderbilt family, and features a captivating cast of real-life characters including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Teddy Roosevelt, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Henry James, and Edith Wharton. The Last Castle is the uniquely American story of how the largest house in America flourished, faltered, and ultimately endured to this day. Karen Abbott is the pen name of Abbott Kahler. She is the New York Times bestselling author of SIN IN THE SECOND CITY, AMERICAN ROSE, and, most recently, LIAR TEMPTRESS SOLDIER SPY, named one of the best books of 2014 by Library Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, and Amazon, and optioned by Sony for a miniseries.A native of Philadelphia, she now lives in New York City, where she's at work on her next book.

The Messthetics is a new instrumental trio with Brendan Canty (D), Joe Lally (B), and Anthony Pirog (G). Brendan Canty and Joe Lally were the rhythm section of the band Fugazi from its inception in 1987 to its period of hiatus in 2002. This is the first band theyve had together since that time. Joe has returned from Italy, and is ready to play. Brendan is very happy to have him back. The two missed each other, and the playing of the music together, so the feeling of the world being righted is right there in the foundation. Anthony Pirog is one of the greatest guitarists anywhere. He challenges our preconceived notions about genre and guitar sound. He continues to shape, tear down and reshape his unique conceptions of what guitar can be. The Messthetics is an unsupervised sonic playground that is driven primarily by Anthonys imagination, and his not-so-latent desire to torture his rhythm section with odd time signatures. The three of them, Canty, Pirog, and Lally, are The Messthetics.

with Kathryn Dean
When David Cook moved to Nashville in 2012, the expectation was that this singer-songwriter from the Heartland would emphasize the rootsy side of his sensibility, and sure enough, he had immediate success co-writing country tunes, including the Top-20 single Kiss You Tonight for David Nail in 2014. But new album Digital Vein is something else entirely, with Cooks powerful voice and dynamic guitar work knifing through vibrant soundscapes that boldly juxtapose man-made grooves and electronic textures.Working in Nashville opened me up creatively to trying different things, Cook explains. Writing for country acts has been freeing in the sense that I can bring out that side of my creativity, and it brought some freshness to the other side of what I like to do. So I ran with it, going into the creative process with the blinders off. I just wanted to try things, and there was no formula. Honestly, I didnt even know if I was gonna make another record; I decided to just write and have fun and see what happens.As an experiment, Cook applied what hed learned from working with Music City craftsmen in that time-honored narrative vein to the material he was writing for his own use. It was fun and a new challenge to try to attack my own songwriting in that way, he begins, then says with a laugh, In hindsight, what the hell was I thinking trying to take this on? But it ended up being an amazing process, and it led to a record that Id put up there with my prouder moments.Asked why he decided to title the album Digital Vein, Cook explains, My last independent record, back in 2006, was Analog Heart, and after my major-label journey, with circumstances being what they are, this record is certainly a progression. I dont think its very much like Analog Heart at all, but the process of putting it together was similar in the sense that I worked with a very small team, and I put a lot of myself into every aspect of it. It felt like a throwback in that regard, so I wanted the two records to be connected, if only in name.Analog Heart and Digital Vein bookend a tumultuous decade in Cooks life and career, as, after fronting a Kansas City-based bar band for 10 years (Wed be lucky to get 10 people, he quips, and most of them would be family members), he accompanied his younger brother Andrew to auditions for American Idol, auditioned himself on a whim and wound up winning the competition in 2008. Released later that year, his self-titled major label debut album sold 1.5 million copies, and though the follow-up, 2011s This Loud Morning, debuted in the Top 10, he wound up as an indie artist once again. As one door closed, another opened, and Cook forged a new career as a songwriter after moving to Nashville in 2012, but he continued to tour as well, as his personal songbook grew thicker. In 2014, he began the process that led to the recording of Digital Vein.Cook recorded the new album in his home studio, working with his longtime friend and onetime bandmate Andy Skib, who engineered, and the rhythm section from his touring band, playing the bulk of the parts himself. The whole thing, he says, was an experiment to see if (A) I could make a record this way, and (B) if I could enjoy doing it this way. Im a control freak, and to have this level of control has been empowering. It was definitely a different process for me, but I cant recall ever having more fun making a record.The project was funded in part by contributions from fans through a highly successful PledgeMusic campaign. Weve had an awesome experience with PledgeMusic, says Cook. The best part is that fans have become a bigger part of the process than in records past. The hope is that, by continuing to build those relationships, well be able to hit the ground running, and ultimately get this music into more peoples ears. I was a little apprehensive about that dynamic at first, but it turns out that its a great way to humanize yourself to your audience. Its nice to tear down that wall, because the end game is that people hopefully will feel more connected to the humanity in the record.Humanity pulses through Digital Vein, from impassioned opener Heartbeat to the haunting metaphysical question of Where Do We Go. On the first single, the rocking Criminals, written with Nashville song-smith Blair Daly, Cook presents his own take on the classic theme of lovers on the run, a notion that has long transfixed the American consciousness, from Bonnie and Clyde to Bruce Springsteen. We started with a Wallflowers One Headlight kind of groove and went down that path, Cook points out. Its a story thats been told before for sure, the idea of young lovers trying to beat the odds its you against the world, and youre gonna make it work, no matter what. Thats what I wanted the cover of this book to look like.Theres a duality on the album between ardently devotional love songs and others shot through with a dark undercurrent, enabling Cooks subtly intense cover of the Chris Isaak classic Wicked Game to function not simply as a vocal showcase but also as a thematic link between these two vectors.Everybody goes through experiences of love and loss, and Im no different, says Cook. In that regard, its natural to pull from that database for inspiration. But what I enjoyed the most was pulling from outside sources, like reading a newspaper article or seeing a painting that just hits a nerve. There are songs on this record that have to do with subject matter that Ive never personally experienced, but things that have inspired me all the same. When I pay attention to the peripherals, it leads to records like this one.Another highlight, the languid yet propulsive Better Than Me, was written by Chase Foster, but Cook fully inhabits it, delivering the self-lacerating lyric knowingly and with beguiling nuance. Killer song, says Cook. It had been on my radar for a couple years, and we were finally able to get it cut.The albums most personal song is the poignant Home Movies. As Cook recalls, Not too long ago, I had the chance to look over old photos with my family, and that brought back memories of my brother Adam. The experience got me in a certain mindset, and I consciously wrote that song about growing up and spending time with my older brother, who passed away of brain cancer in 2009. Hes been a part of every record Ive made, but with Home Movies especially, theres a tangible aspect.Since Adams death, David has devoted himself to fighting the disease, to the extent that philanthropy is now as important to him as his music. I think I would have been involved either way, he says. But seeing what he went through, and what his wife and his kids all went through, touched me deeply. And thats another avenue where the fans have been insane. We crossed the million-dollar threshold last December, which is unfathomable to me still. Records are going to sell or not sell, but raising that money for cancer research puts everything in perspective it makes you realize what really matters.Cook becomes reflective as he looks back on his journey, with its ecstatic highs and devastating lows. I have no regrets, he says of his Idol experience. It has ultimately let me do some amazing things in the last seven years, culminating in this record. Who knows where Id be right now if werent for all that. Prior to the show, I was tending bar to pay the rent, and I was a really bad bartender. So to have the resources that I have now to be able to make a record this way its huge. Ive still got a platform and an avenue that most dont. So, yeah, no regrets.Redemption is a weird term, he continues, but I dont think thats really what this record is. I see it as a different chapter. The best way I can sum it up is that, succeed or fail, Im going to fall on my own sword which is nerve-racking as hell, but its also super-exciting, and I wouldnt have it any other way. It may sound like lip service to say it, but I really do love this record, and if I loved it any less, I dont know that Id be putting it out. Im treating this record like this is it. Every album from here on out could be the last one, so Id better swing for the fences, and thats what we did on this one.
