TGIF | RAD-Style

wedge_dockFriday night was a perfect “Troy” ending to a perfect Friday to a perfect Modern Asheville week. {Art + Cocktails} After Kelly and I successfully completed negations today on a cool, mid-century home in the Forest Park neighborhood of North Asheville for one of our buyer clients I headed down to, where else, the River Arts District.

Following some solo relaxation, sketching and a sip of Derailed at the Wedge Brewery {center of the RAD Universe} I headed up to Pink Dog Studios. There our favorite Asheville sculptor, Hoss Haley, was curating a show called “Look Again” at the Asheville Area Arts Council Gallery shown above. Check it out.

IMG_4651Visually stimulated I strolled a few doors down to the Junction for some creative southern inspired food to attend to my other senses. Before my Friend Chicken and Collards could hit the bar top I bumped into artist Cleaster Cotton and got the skinny on her exhibit there called “Still Life and Living Whimsey.” Cleaster’s vibrant spirit shows in her work and brought sunshine to the dark space with both. She is passionate about her work and is eager to raise revenue through her art to support ALNUGE – a teaching method she crafted. I know she would love your support.

So this weekend promises to be the 2nd most beautiful weekend of the year for 2014. Get out and enjoy all the cool things Asheville has to offer. See you out there. Cheers!

Pink Dog Creative Studios

Last night I attended the grand opening of Pink Dog Creative Studios on Lyman St. in the River Arts District.  The property is a creative venture by artist/designer Randy Shull and creative entrepreneur Hedy Fisher.  The building will house workshops, artist studios, community space and eventually a new restaurant adding its signature to the growing venues in the River District of Asheville.
