Asheville Gallery of Art’s July show features the work of Cheryl Keefer whose signature impressionist style interprets moody landscapes as well as urban scenes. The show runs July 1-31 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, July 7, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The artist enjoys oil painting en plein air, whether on a mountainside or along a marsh. She is often inspired to listen to that still small voice that speaks to her, sometimes quietly, filling her with awe and gratitude, and moving her to create. Simple ideas become visual expressions of her personal epiphanies: morning light glistening on a wooded stream, a sunset punctuating a cloudy sky, fresh spring blossoms highlighting an otherwise gray day, a red umbrella piercing through the rain. In a loud world full of so many inconsistencies, Keefer says she finds wonder and joy in the rhythmic cycles of life on earth, celebrating all seasons in all kinds of weather and times of day. Each composition reflects her endeavor to rejoice everyday, and her hope in the wondrousness of creation. "Momentous occasions of life are few and far between so I want the viewer to see cause for celebration, even in the rain." The artist holds degrees in art history and art education from The University of Alabama, Birmingham, and graduate painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. She enjoys working and visiting with clients and friends in her studio, NorthLight, in Asheville’s River Arts District. Keefer’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of July. 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.

Come see folklorist Bobby McMillon perform "The Ballad of Frankie Silver" and other stories at North Asheville Library. Bobby McMillon is a North Carolina Folk Heritage Award recipient and a relative of the Silver family. He grew up immersed in WNC folklore, listening to "booger tales, haint tales," and legends about the murder of his relative Charlie Silver. "The real storytelling," Bobby says, "was so intertwined that a bear tale or a fish tale or a witch tale or a tale of some history that had really happened—a family tale—they were all equally believable." Bobby will be telling the story of Frankie Silver, who became the first white woman to be hung in Burke County after she was convicted of the murder of her husband in 1833. Frankie Silver's story has lived on for generations, preserved the ballads and folklore to be presented at this event.

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.

Just across the street from the Omni Grove Park Inn lies a destination unlike any other: Grovewood Village, housed in the historic weaving and woodworking complex of Biltmore Industries - a groundbreaking enterprise in the history of American craft and textiles, with ties to George and Edith Vanderbilt, Edwin Wiley Grove, and Fred Loring Seely. In its heyday, Biltmore Industries had a total of 40 looms in steady operation, producing bolts of some of the highest quality homespun fabric in the country, worn by U.S. presidents, first ladies, and many American icons. Learn the story of Biltmore Industries on a guided history tour, offered Wednesday - Saturday at 1pm during April – December. The tour includes a visit to the historic Dye House in Grovewood Village (usually closed to the public), where the original looms, carding machines, mule spinners, and dye vats used to make Biltmore Handwoven Homespun can still be viewed. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and are geared towards adults. There is no charge to take the tour, but donations are appreciated. Spots are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Downtown Asheville is the retro-urban backdrop for the 2017 Asheville Yoga festival that will feature workshops, music, and unique health & wellness vendors. We will attend a highly-sought after immersion workshop taught by Dr. Chelsea Roberts, who was featured on the cover of Yoga Journal this month.

'Royal Sessions' really marks the beginning of us figuring out exactly who we are as a band," says Ryan Harkrider, frontman of Austin-based soul dynamos The Nightowls. "It's us transitioning from the 'retro' label into defining our own distinctive sound, and this is the first release where we feel like we've totally locked into what our creative process is as a ten-piece ensemble."For The Nightowls, that process began with the release their debut album, 'Good As Gold,' which took Texas by storm in 2014. The Austin Chronicle hailed it as "suave, energetic, blue-eyed soul" and named it one of the Top 10 of the year at the annual Austin Chronicle Music Awards, Austin Monthly named them a Band To Watch, and Texas Music Magazine called the album "a smooth addictive blend of pop, R&B and funk that will delight the band's dance-happy fans." They spent the next year bringing their ecstatic live show to stages around the country, including a triumphant hometown gig at the Austin City Limits Festival, and followed it up in 2015 with 'Fame Sessions,' recorded at the titular, iconic Muscle Shoals studio. That album earned the band serious national attention and love everywhere from The Atlantic and Southern Living to Relix and Pollstar, and it saw their lineup solidify into its current, electrifying status."Our live shows continue to get more and more choreographed and exciting," says vocalist Ellie Carroll of the band's evolution during the last year on the road, which included a much-lauded return to the ACL Festival. "The whole front line is out there dancing and we're always upping our game and our performances. The visual power of ten people doing the same thing at the same time is immense, and everybody in this band is an incredible dancer and performer."Whereas the songs on 'Fame Sessions' were peppered with special guest performances by members of the legendary Swampers rhythm sectionincluding the likes of Spooner Oldham and David Hoodas well as vocal contributions from the Shoal Sisters, everything about the 'Royal Sessions' EP showcases The Nightowls coming into their own as a band."In the past, it was mainly me writing, arranging, and collaborating with a small handful of band members," says Harkrider, "but this one was much more of a full band effort. Id take a song idea to the rhythm section to flesh it out, and then take that to the horn section for their parts, and then from there we'd work out the final arrangement as a full band to make sure everything worked together and everybody got to express themselves and be creative and have their stamp on it."The result is an energetic blend of classic soul and modern pop, as the band transcends the "retro" tag that described their early releases in favor of a more unique sound reflective of all ten personalities, with influences running the gamut from James Brown to Michael Jackson. Bright, bold horns dance and leap over a funky rhythm section, while Harkrider's soulful voice shimmers out alongside gorgeous female harmonies. The infectious vitality of the music is due in no small part to the fact that the band recorded the entire EP live over two days at the famed Royal Studios in Memphis, TN."We're big Al Green fans," guitarist Amos Traystman says of the decision to record at Royal, where Green laid down many of his biggest hits. "We had a string of Tennessee shows while on tour last fall, and we decided to check in with Boo Mitchell over at Royal Studios to see if we could record a few songs while we were in Memphis. We were writing stuff on the road and scrambling a bit to get the material together last minute, but the sessions were great. It's always fun for us to be in a room with so much history."The EP kicks off with "Right Around The Corner," which encompasses so many of the band's strengths, from punchy horns to call-and-response vocals steeped in the kind of timeless soul music the band grew up on."I felt lyrically that we needed to have a song that was true to our experience as a band over the last six months," says Harkrider," so this one tells the story of us being on the road and working and missing our family and friends, but it's also a reminder that even though were out there doing our thing, were always going to be close to home and there when they need us. Theres a gang vocal at the end that we all did as a band in the studio, and it was one of the most rewarding recording experiences ever because we were all in there together as a family.""Can't Hold Me Down" is a frequent Nightowls show-opener that's rooted in the kind of unshakable optimism and positivity that make the band's live performances such feel-good, uplifting, and memorable events, while on "Clean It Up," they offer a clear glimpse of their transformation and where they may be headed with the next full-length, as 'Thriller'-era horns mesh with gritty soul vocals and spacey electric guitars. Elsewhere, "Gotta Keep Moving" calls to mind the brass-fueled hits of Chicago, and "Dont Wanna Leave You Lonely" pays subtle homage to Green."That one is a little outside what we'd normally do progression and arrangement-wise, says bassist Rob Alton, "but it ends up working so well because it features everyone really brilliantly. Theres several guitar tracks that, without each other, wouldn't work, but when you put them together, it creates a really cool texture that Al Green has on a lot of his records.""There's a great horn interlude and background harmonies," adds trumpeter Michael Rey, "but above all it's that drum sound and groove that makes this work. Its the simplest and hardest thing to do, just to play open and to play straight up and down, but our drummer, Ben Petree, does it fabulously."In the end, as much as for any musical evolution, the 'Royal Sessions' may one day be best remembered in The NIghtowls' catalog as the recording that marked their transition from a band into something more, something far deeper. In that sense, they didnt' just find their sound while recording this EP, they also found themselves: soul brothers and sisters in a true royal family.

Kermit Lynch Wine Dinner featuring 5 courses of locally sourced, seasonal fare and French wines from famed importer Kermit Lynch. $100/person all inclusive (tax and tip included). Please note that the sparkling wine reception starts at 6:30 pm -- please plan to arrive no earlier than 6:30 as we will be setting up the dining room. Thanks for your understanding. I'm super excited to work with the fine folks at the Asheville Yoga Festival (July 27-30), with local restaurant Local Provisions, and with the wines of famed importer Kermit Lynch for a Farm to Table Wine Dinner. The dinner is not limited to Asheville Yoga Festival attendees and includes 5 courses made with locally sourced ingredients paired with some of Kermit Lynch's finest organic wines. Just as Yoga increases your connection to your body and senses, this dinner will connect you to small family farms and growers/producers near and far. Chef Justin Burdett will create dishes from the bounty of high quality ingredients from the best local farms and myself and Richard McKinney of Tryon Distributing will select wines from the small grower/producer driven portfolio of Kermit Lynch. Being that Chef Justin only buys what is fresh and in season, the menu and the wines will be announced closer to the date of the dinner. At just $100 all inclusive, this is a great deal and you will leave nourished, satiated, and happy! Trust me, it's going to be great. If you have any food allergies or restrictions, please call the restaurant at least a week before the dinner at 828.424.7815 and Local Provisions will offer delicious alternatives.
