Description:
Tracey Morgan Gallery is pleased to present Future Past: Experiments in Photography, a group exhibition of work from 15 artists, all of whom are working beyond the tradition notions of photography. Artists included are Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, Colby Caldwell, Bridget Conn, Ofri Cnaani, Bryan Graf, Sandi Haber Fifield, James Huckenpahler, Ivana Larrosa, Chris McCaw, Ben Nixon, Stacey Page, Dawn Roe, Nikko Sedgwick, and Lydia See. More than ever, the art world is seeing a shift in the way we perceive photographs. This exhibition is a small survey of contemporary photography’s return to hand crafted, unique (sometimes one of a kind) works of art. These artists are working beyond the camera, beyond the frame, beyond film, beyond the print. Chance serves as a dominant theme in both the process and the resulting works. We see artists not only using tools of digital manipulation, they are also altering the surface of their photographs with paint, thread, water, and other non traditional materials. We’re also seeing artists employ traditional photographic techniques, and even reconsidering ways in which these techniques can be utilized. The exhibition includes a survey of processes from photograms, cyanotypes to digital applications and 3-dimensional installations. Colby Caldwell uses the computer and one corrupt digital file transferred from Super 8 film to create vibrant grid-like images. James Huckenpahler utilizes computer software to create striking, figurative prints on aluminum. Ben Nixon constructs photograms, images made without the use of a camera, as does Bryan Graf, who uses a handheld flash and color gels to create his dream-like, large-scale photograms. Bridget Conn, also utilizing an alternative process, makes gestural chemigrams using photographic paper to make pieces based on line, shape, color, and textures rather than on photographic imagery from negatives. Ofri Cnaani and Dawn Roe also create cameraless works, and will be both exhibiting cyanotypes, with Roe creating a small scale installation. Matthew Brandt, who has used everything from peanut butter to cocaine in his photographs, will be exhibiting subtle, captivating works on handmade paper, silkscreened with charcoal from wood on the land which contains his subjects, trees. In his Sunburned series, Chris McCaw creates several-hour exposures, a process where the sun burns its path onto the light sensitive negative, moving beyond photography as merely a representation of reality. Several of the artists are working well beyond the photograph itself. Nikko Sedgwick begins with a photograph that he has loosened the chemistry from, resulting in distorted, whirling pieces that he then paints atop of. Lydia See and Stacey Page use thread and embroidery to activate their imagery, while Marco Breuer creates memorable graphic abstractions by burning, folding, embossing, scraping, and otherwise obstructing photo sensitive paper. Sandi Haber Fifield combines photographs with drawings on vellum resulting in intimate, atmospheric works that one looks at as well as through. Ivana Larrosa uses prints, hair, and various other materials to create 3-dimensional images. As one can imagine, the use of the hand goes well beyond expectation for a photographic exhibition.

Ages 18+

Twiddle hails from the hills of Hubbardton Vermont, and has always sought to write and perform music that is diverse and groovin’, but also intricate and expressive. In the relatively short time since forming, this quartet’s music and songwriting has progressed by leaps without bounds, earning them steadily growing recognition. While tapping many parts of the globe for diverse musical and cultural influences, Twiddle maintains a vibe of modern rock and funk with traditional jazz, classical, reggae, and Latin overtones – all in the spirit of intertwining improvisation and structure. The band has been able to kick back and find itself at home on whatever stage they’ve played on, be it at a club, college, downtown park, historic theatre, or rowdy festival. Twiddle’s shows are always high energy, but with plenty of time, tempo, and mood changes to keep the ears engaged and the brain wondering what’s next.

Could you be the voice for an abused/neglected child in the court system? Volunteers needed in Buncombe County North Carolina Guardian ad Litem Program 828-259-3443 or www.volunteerforgal.org for more info No experienced needed – all training and support provided Since January 1, 2017, 360 children have entered the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program – this means that 343 kids are alleged to have been abused/neglected and are in the court system. Of no fault of their own, these kids are typically removed from their home and placed and in foster care or a kinship placement. Why were they removed from the home? Maybe their parents abused substances, had untreated mental health, or engaged in domestic violence – maybe it was a combination of these factors. Either way, it’s the kids who pay the ultimate penalty as their lives are uprooted, they often change school districts and are taken away from everything they know. There are so many parties in a DSS abuse/neglect case: the judge, parents/caretakers, parent’s attorneys, DSS attorneys, GAL attorneys, investigative/in-home/foster care social workers…it’s easy to see how the kids get lost in the system. That’s where the role of the Guardian ad Litem comes in: to advocate and ensure the voice of the child is heard in court, that their wishes for permanency and best interest are made known to all parties. With so many kids in the GAL program, our office is overwhelmed with cases, and we have a critical need for volunteers to represent children’s best interests in court. There is no experience necessary and we provide all training and support. Being a GAL is a challenging and demanding role, but also incredibly rewarding as you literally ensure the child’s voice is heard in court throughout the life of the case. Our next training begins mid-January – visit www.volunteerforgal.org to complete a volunteer application, or call the office at 828-259-3443 for more information. Could you be the voice for a child?

Asheville Gallery of Art’s April show features the work of Johnnie Stanfield whose landscapes and still lifes capture both the vibrancy and heritage of living in the North Carolina mountains. The show runs April 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, April 6, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Stanfield says her show will showcase work that depicts a collection of items that bring back memories of an event, an occasion, or a period in our lives. “Anything vintage interests me, including typewriters, musical instruments, radios, a collec-tion of old cars, and antique fishing lures. I love the detail and the personality of these items and the way they have aged gracefully over the years,” she said. The exhibit will include several pencil renderings of her favorite items including old Western and English riding boots and an old Western saddle. Her large painting, “The Memory Makers,” depicts vehicles from the 1940s and ’50s. Johnnie returned to the art scene after a serious injury to her right hand. "The first year was extremely tough. I was unable to move any of my fingers and I had no feeling in my hand. It took me almost five years to get back to my past potential with about 93 per cent usage of my right hand,” she said. The artist has won vari-ous awards for her paintings and drawings over the years, including recently taking second place in the Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League’s 2016 juried show for her equestrian watercolor portrait, “Troubadour.” Her work can be seen at The Asheville Gallery of Art. Stanfield’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of April. 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 celebrate the Creation Spiritualities 2018 International Gathering's Kick Off concert with Abraham Jam A Muslim, a Jew, and a Christian walk into a concert hall What may be mistaken for a stand-up comedians opening line is actually Abraham Jam, a trio of internationally-renowned musicians who have teamed up to create art strengthened by diversity. Abraham Jamcomposed of Billy Jonas, David LaMotte, and Dawud Wharnsbyfeatures three brothers from the three Abrahamic faiths. Jonas, LaMotte and Wharnsby have performed extensively over the last few decades in their individual careers. They came together and have performed to enthusiastic audiences in Asheville and beyond. Harmony is better than unity, says David LaMotte, who helped create Abraham Jam. We dont have to be singing the same note to cultivate peace, we can sing different notes that are beautiful together. LaMotte is a well-loved songwriter, with over 3000 concerts on five continents and every state in the U.S. on his musical resumé. They dont just take turns sharing songs, but create music together, contributing vocal harmonies, percussion, and instrumentation to each others songs. To learn more visit Abrahamjam.com

Sex, Love, Marriage, and Feminism Clash in WNC Playwright Brenda Lunsford Lilly’s Scathingly Relevant Doll; Having its Asheville Premiere April 19-May 5 at The Magnetic Theatre Asheville-based playwright Brenda Lunsford Lilly’s blistering play, Doll, will have its Asheville premiere at The Magnetic Theatre with a three-week run beginning on April 19 and running through May 5. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with curtain times at 7:30pm. Tickets range from $12 (for preview performances on April 19 and 20) to $16 for performances from April 21-May 5. Tickets can be purchased online at The Magnetic Theatre’s website www.themagnetictheatre.org or at the door. “When I set out to adapt A DOLL’S HOUSE, I was immediately struck at how little had actually changed in the nearly one-hundred years since Ibsen wrote his play – often referred to as the ‘birth of modern drama.’ And while, at its heart, it is an exploration of a marriage, it is also an extraordinarily taught mystery. Who knows ‘what’ and ‘when’ is at the core of the story. In moving it into contemporary times (1962) and NYC, I was free to add humour and much more sexual tension than in the original. And while Ibsen’s original play examined the patriarchy of his time, mine is nestled into the mid- century misogyny of America when we were on the cusp of a new feminist movement and the advent of the “Pill” was about to usher in the sexual revolution”, commented Lilly. “As we still struggle today about #metoo and a woman’s role in the home, the workplace, politics, and even the theatre, I am reminded of Gloria Steinem’s statement – “The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.” Taking place at the end of 1962, Doll zeroes in on the growing pressure on Nora (Mary Katherine O’Donnell), who has taken out a secret loan to cover expenses incurred when her husband David (Maximilian Koger) was critically ill. Having secured the loan without her husband’s knowledge or permission from a duplicitous business associate (Scott Volshinin), Nora must now pay the loan in full or risk being exposed and ruining her husband’s reputation. She turns to trusted friends Emily (Hannah Williams-Beaver) and Tommy (Daniel Henry) for help as the deadline looms near.

She is the songwriter, lead singer, and producer of the Asheville-based Americana group The Honeycutters. With The Honeycutters she has shared the stage with Guy Clark, Amy Ray, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tony Rice, The Seldom Scene, Donna The Buffalo, Jill Andrews, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jim Lauderdale, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Langhorne Slim. Her song "Little Bird" won First Place in The Great Lakes Songwriting Competition (2011) and Second Place in the General category in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest (2011). The Honeycutters fifth studio album, Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters, features thirteen of Platt's original compositions and has been met with critical acclaim across the USA, Canada and the UK. “Platt’s voice is fair magical. Clearly annunciated, every word is infused with poetic loveliness, made all the more appealing for the slight twang that causes syllables to rise and fall at the end of lines. Like Joy Lynn White once upon a time and Zoe Muth more recently, Platt can sing of desperation and despair while retaining pride of steel… throughout On the Ropes Platt delivers personal devastation that touches universally.”-- Donald Teplyske, Lonesome Road Review"Amanda Anne Platt has a voice that’s complex, sweet and aching. Even more potently, she writes songs that folks are citing as up there with the best of the field, such as Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Williams.”-- Craig Havighurtst, Music City Roots Host

I'm a DJ based in Asheville, NC but mostly, I'm a music miner. I excavate the sonic gems that bring the bounce -- tunes tinged with funk, blues, soul and global influences. These tracks always get the party sparking, hips swaying, smiles spreading and the boogie grooving.   You’ll be surprised by most of my tunes (and by just how irresistible their pull is), but you'll also hear a few favorites (I'm looking at you Stevie, Prince & Bowie).   Some come on out and party. Groove. Dance. Play. You know you want to.

with Corey Kent White
After moving to Nashville from his blue-collar hometown in Western Pennsylvania, Moakler first established his foothold as a songwriter in Music City with cuts by Ashley Monroe, Jake Owen, Ben Rector, and perhaps most notably, Dierks Bentley (Riser). In 2017, Moakler released his fourth studio album, Steel Town, an album that celebrated the hardworking people where he grew up. Moakler was called an in-demand artist by Taste of Country, and has earned recognition by more than 20 outlets as an artist to watch, including CMT, Huffington Post, Nashville Lifestyles, Rolling Stone Country and more. Steel Town, with more than 15 million combined streams, produced fan-favorite Suitcase that People Magazine called romantically honest, Love Drunk that AXS called intoxicating and the title track that Rolling Stone Country called a wistful, mid-tempo acoustic ballad [that] pays tribute to the resilient people of his hometown just south of Pittsburgh: the factories they work in, the bars they unwind in, and the solace they take in their community.

Wine doesn’t have to be expensive to be good, and we’ll prove that at our Free Italian Wine Values Tasting this Friday! It’s Asheville’s best free wine tasting, and you’re invited. Just stop by — no RSVP required and there’s plenty of free parking. Italy continues to produce some of the world’s greatest wine values. Maybe it’s because wine is produced pretty much everywhere in the country or maybe it’s because the country is home to some of the top cooperatives in the world? I would need much more time and space to explain this fully, but for now, let’s just agree that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a great bottle of Italian wine. Still not sure — stop by this Friday to taste, learn, save, and be amazed by the quality-to-price ratio of the wines we’re pouring. 1. 2016 Vecchia Torre Vermentino (Salento, Italy) – Vecchia Torre is one of Southern Italy’s top, quality-oriented co-ops. This wine is the proof! From the Salento Peninsula, in the heel of Italy’s boot, this is lovely white wine. Fresh and crisp, yet rich and textured, it exhibits aromas and flavors of white peach, apple, white flowers, and green strawberry. Be careful — this one disappears quickly on warm and sunny days. 2. 2017 Vallevo Rosato (Abruzzo, Italy) – If you’ve shopped at Table Wine for any amount of time, you know that we have the best dry rosé selection of any store in town. This is a new one! From the Terre di Chieti zone of Abruzzo, this one blends Merlot with Montepulciano to create a light, dry, and zesty rosato. You won’t believe how good this is for the money! 3. NV Trevini Sangiovese “Rubicone” (Emilia-Romagna, Italy) – For just over $7/bottle, you won’t find a better pizza/pasta/crushable red than this one! Fermented entirely in stainless steel, it’s medium-bodied, it’s fresh, and it’s loaded with ripe and juicy notes of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry. Don’t buy just 1 bottle of this one……..trust me.

The Performance: Krishna will read his own English translation before singing each song in the original vernacular. He plays the harmonium, western classical guitar, as well as other traditional instruments to accompany his voice. He will be joined in this performance by Peter Booth, a world famous Persian scholar, poet and translator of Hafiz, as well accompanists on the tabla and tamboura. He will also lead the audience in chanting some Kirtans from various spiritual traditions. Suggested Love Offering From the Heart: $20 About Dr. Krishna Kant Shukla and some sample links to his music videos: While teaching Physics and Astronomy as an assistant professor in upstate New York, Shukla decided to quit academics and follow his heart and soul deep into the fathomless waters of Indian Classical Music. Having studied with great maestros like Srimati Laxmi Shankar, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, and Dr. Tapan Bhattacharya, he returned to India in 1994 to explore the roots of Indian Classical Music in the folk traditions. His musical search led him into remote villages in the Himalayan foothills, as well as far flung and difficult to reach dwellings in the central plains. He has been particularly influenced by the songs of Kabir, Gorakhnath, and other poet-saints as sung by his Guru, Pandit Kumar Gandharva. These songs belong to living spiritual traditions, some of which are over fourteen hundred years old.

Having studied English literature at Bard College, Peter went on to study Persian at Harvard and then Persian Literature at Ferdowsi University in Mashhad Iran under a scholarship from the Shah. Peter is co-author of the book Dante/Hafiz. Peter has also lived in Maharashtra, India for almost 35 years, where he helped to build and run Meherabad, an ashram and spiritual community that houses the tomb of Avatar Meher Baba. The Ashram regularly attracts thousands of pilgrims from virtually every country in the world. Sample link to Peter’s Hafiz reading: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NIflxN_8Sw).

with Jess Williamson
Loma's self-titled debut reveals a band obsessed with songs as sound. There are endless details to discover here, stoked by the album's urgent and searching lyrical themes (exquisitely delivered by the translucent voice of Emily Cross); and on headphones, the album feels both intimate and expansive, like casting your eyes over a detailed painting on a vast canvas.It's also the product of a joint pilgrimage around the globe by fellow touring musicians. Jonathan Meiburg is best known as the singer of Shearwater; Cross and the multi-instrumentalist and engineer Dan Duszynski form Cross Record, originally from Chicago. They met through Ben Goldberg (of Badabing! records, who helped launch the careers of Tune-Yards, Beirut, and Sharon Van Etten), who sent Meiburg Cross Record's 2015 album Wabi-Sabi, which led to the two bands traveling together across America and Europe throughout Shearwater's 2016 tour for Jet Plane and Oxbow, often crammed into the same van. The tour was Cross Record's first, but Meiburg was shocked by their maturity and confidence. "I couldn't believe all that sound was coming out of two people," he says. "They had their own world, their own rules, and they slayed every night. They were mesmerizing."While in the van or at soundchecks, they shared their musical knowledge and love of nature and animals. "I think Jonathan is one of the most special people we've ever met," says Cross. "It's hard not to like him. He has such a curious mind." And after an especially memorable show in Belgium, Meiburg approached Cross and Duszynski about working together. "I fell in love with their music," he admits, "and I wanted to know how they did it."They convened for two weeks in the house outside Austin where Cross Record recorded Wabi-Sabi to see what would happen, recording "Joy", the gorgeously ambivalent "I Don't Want Children", and the beginnings of five more songs. An album seemed surprisingly imminent. "There was something special about the combination of the three of us," Meiburg says, "and very different from either of our bands. But I think we were afraid to say so out loud, for fear of jinxing it."For the next few months, they convened for two weeks at a time, shaping new songs and casting away others. It was a strangely charged time, not least because when the album began, Cross and Duszynski were a married couple, but their relationship came to an end during the sessions-an atmosphere Meiburg found challenging but strangely inspiring. "There was no drama where I was concerned," he recalls, "and I didn't really know what was happening; but there was an unspoken feeling of urgency, and a sense that a big change was coming for all of us, and I think we all tried to channel that into the work." The house was out in the country, off a dirt road, surrounded by the sounds of birds and wind; and it seemed like a world of its own-full of joy, fear, and heartbreak.The place itself became the album's muse. "I got sort of obsessed with capturing every sound inside and outside the house," recalls Meiburg. ("Remember the whippoorwills?" asks Cross; Meiburg doesn't know offhand if they made it into the album or not). From the cicadas and frogs of "Relay Runner" to the whooshes of wind and leaves on "White Glass" and "Black Willow", Loma often sounds as if you're not so much listening to it as living inside it. "The 'dog solo' on 'Sun Dogs' is one of my favorite moments," Meiburg says; "and I remember Emily making a drum out of the cast-iron pot we cooked breakfast in. There were no rules; nobody was the designated drummer, or the bass player, or the guitarist. This freedom from their usual roles gave the trio a fresh rulebook to invent from. "Jonathan's melodies were so different from the ones I'd choose," says Cross. "He has a rich knowledge of songwriting. My approach is more unrefined and experimental, and it created a strong balance."Meiburg had never written for someone else before. "What a relief!" he laughs. "I was scared at first, but I tried to project myself into things I imagined Emily might say, or sing, or think-and in the end we landed on a voice that's not quite her-but it's not me either." Cross, meanwhile, found a freedom in singing someone else's words. "Usually vocals are scary for me," she says, "but since I didn't feel like I had to present entirely as myself, I felt open to doing things I wouldn't normally do." The album became a place where buried thoughts and energies found expression; Cross wrung catharsis from Meiburg's lyrics and melodies while Duszynski buried himself in the sonic details of engineering and mixing (and conjured up some catharsis of his own in the hammering drums of "Dark Oscillations").The process also helped Cross locate a voice she'd never found before. While tracking "I Don't Want Children," her vocals were accidentally recorded at the wrong speed, and when played back, they were pitched slightly lower and slower than normal, yielding a voice that was recognizably hers, but deeper and more coarse-grained-a sound she decided to use for the rest of the album.This sense of discovery extends to the listener; at times, Loma almost seems to be listening to you. But it doesn't sound small, or hushed; "Dark Oscillations" and "Jornada" have a gritty, futuristic grandeur, and there's also the loping groove of "Relay Runner", the galloping euphoria of "Joy", and the resolutely ambiguous choir of "Black Willow." "The album is a journey," muses Meiburg, "but we didn't know where we were going until we arrived." The journey's end came with a surprising lesson. "It's about having to let some precious things go," Meiburg says, "so that new ones can take their place."

$10 advance / $12 day of show JGBCB - JERRY GARCIA BAND COVER BAND Formed in Athens, GA in 2012, JGBCB has been filling a hole in the Grateful Dead scene by offering up spirited covers of classic songs pulled exclusively from the repertoire of the Jerry Garcia Band, Garcia's long-running side-project. JGBCB has played shows from Key West to Colorado, exciting audiences with performances of beloved Garcia tunes not found within the traditional Grateful Dead catalog. The Jerry Garcia Band (famously known to Dead Heads as "JGB") was as much a songwriting outlet for Garcia as it was a chance for him to cover the music he loved. With Jerry and bassist John Kahn as the band's staples (playing together as far back as 1970), a varied set of keyboardists, drummers, and backup singers filled out the lineup over the years, each bringing their own unique character to the band. Over the course of it's existence, JGB played a number of diverse musical styles, covering artists such as The Beatles, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, The Band, Jimmy Cliff, Smoky Robinson, The Rolling Stones, the Wailers, J.J. Cale, and Ray Charles. The list goes on and on, recalling the names of rock, soul, and folk royalty. It is with a deep love of Jerry Garcia's music and the music that he loved that the members of JGBCB approach this project. The band came together for a single show in December 2012, which led to a local weekly residency in Athens. The positive response they received ultimately led JGBCB to tour around the country, giving fans all over a taste of the music of the Jerry Garcia Band. Count on hearing different material from night to night, consisting of JGB staples and deep cuts. How sweet it is!
