Hi Folks! This Sunday is Aheville’s Largest Market for the Old, the Bold, the Creative and Unexpected is in its 5th season of gathering quality curators of antiques, vintage decor, art, jewelry, and home furnishings. Go HERE for details. 

Robert and Rebecca Nicholas own Splurge, a custom lighting and antique business in the River Arts District. They are also former co-owners of Asheville Flea for Y’all. This duo has almost 30 years experience in the antique and design world. For over a decade they traveled the US doing shows and 5 years ago thought it was time to start one here in Asheville.

TONIGHT | Who’s Afraid of Red?

Opening tonight from 5 to 8pm the Asheville Area Arts Council is excited to host 16 artists in a new exhibit by curator Barbara Fisher called Who’s Afraid of RED? The title is inspired by a series of Barnett Newman paintings called Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue.

This exhibit will explore the many meanings and associations to the color red: love, vitality, opulence, fire, the heart, the devil, blood, power, passion…. as well as the many uses of the word red in our language such as: red tape, red carpet, red-letter day, red herring, red ink, caught red-handed, red cent.  Also, because of the expense of the dye, red cloaks and hats have been worn as status symbols throughout history.  The associations are endless.Go HERE to find out the skinny. Cheers!
