Description:
Lost Utopias is an exhibition of works from New York-based photographer Jade Doskow. The show opened on June 1st, and will run through July 28th. For the past decade, Doskow has been documenting the remains of World’s Fair sites, once iconic global attractions that have often been repurposed for less noble aspirations or neglected and fallen into decay. Doskow’s photographs poignantly illustrate the utopian architecture and art that has surrounded the World’s Fairs, across both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is an award-winning photographer based in Brooklyn, New York, known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of people, nature, and time. This series has been featured in numerous press outlets including Architect Magazine, Elle Decor Italia, American Photo, Design Observer, Design Arts Daily, Photograph Magazine, Dwell, Slate, and Wired, among others.

Does your life feel a bit off-kilter? If you’re working (either inside or outside your home), do you wish you had more time for play? If you’re retired, do you still feel like you’re in workmode? And how about the rest of your life? Does it feel complete, or is something missing? ​ If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, this workshop is for you! Using an ancient tool called a “Wheel of Life,” we’ll spend the first part of the workshop getting to the source of your imbalance.

Momentum Gallery in downtown Asheville is pleased to participate in the Summer of Glass, a WNC celebration of glass art in conjunction with the Dale Chihuly exhibition at the Biltmore Estate, May-October 2018. The gallery exhibition, Reflections (July 1-August 25) nods to the Gilded Age, a period during the late 19th Century when the Biltmore Estate was conceived and constructed by railway tycoon George Vanderbilt. This curated exhibition features recent work by some of the country’s top contemporary glass artists with many of the works in the collection speaking to Vanderbilt’s aesthetic of opulence, grandeur, and beauty. Other conceptual pieces examine concepts of memory and history, referencing the “downstairs” or “behind the scenes” of the palatial mansion as well. Sophisticated sculptures and stylish wall pieces incorporate a variety of glass techniques and explore the intricate detailing, ornamentation, and drama indicative of the Gilded Age. An Artists Reception will take place on Sunday, July 1, 2018 from 5-8pm. Beer, wine, and light refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public. Reflections includes works by: Thor & Jennifer Bueno, Amber Cowan, Jennifer Halvorson, Alli Hoag, Joanna Manousis, Kit Paulson, Pablo Soto, and Tim Tate.

Every third Saturday of the month during May through October, the resident artists at Grovewood Village will open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am - 4pm on all dates. Grovewood Village is home to 10 resident artists, whose studios are located directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. These workspaces were originally built to house the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, Grovewood’s resident artists - inspired by an earlier craft force - create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where the famed Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once made.

Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, certified Zentangle® teacher, Susan Goodman, will show you how to create beautiful abstract images using this fun, meditative process. Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to turn structured patterns—called “tangles”—into tiny (3.5” x 3.5”) masterpieces that can, ultimately, be assembled into a larger mosaic. Susan will show you how to combine dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves, and orbs to create your first "tile(s)." By the end of the workshop, you will have learned at least four basic tangles, the strokes necessary to make them, and how to add shading to bring your pictures to life!
