Yeah! We closed on this cool artistic condo in the River Arts district. This one was under contract in 14 days and sold slightly above asking price. The 2 bedroom and 1 bath condo home sat privately on the top view floor of the Clingman Lofts. The designer living space has been upgraded with everything you need.
Did you miss out? Don’t worry because we have another one for you below. Enjoy a great view of the River Arts District from the largest and brightest condo at the conveniently located Clingman Lofts. The private two bedroom, two bath and top floor unit puts you steps away from downtown and the RAD. This corner unit features floor to ceiling windows with a corner balcony. The unit comes with an assigned parking space and a lockable, climate controlled storage unit.
Want to know more on this one? Give us a call. And enjoy the tour of this available unit here. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

A special thanks to Kelly and Carla for the extra effort in wrangling this one to close. Cheers!
By the Citizen Times | Here is a nice article featuring some of our friends regarding artists making a living here in Asheville. Go here to read. Enjoy!
Catching Up with Artist Barbara Fisher | I stopped by for my yearly trek to Barbara’s studio over the weekend. Barbara was the first artist I wrote about eight years ago today so it has become a little tradition for us.
Barbara has always been both super prolific and evolutionary in her work. One can look around her studio and see her journey as an artist. Currently she has been led to work with mixing acrylic and ink on canvas in a series she calls “Tangled Mapping.” The works appear as aerial views of chaotic cities, intricate weavings, interstices, energy blips or the fabric of the “ether” around us. She relates them to slices of our thoughts at any moment in time or the invisible chemical trails of the energy between us these days.
Barbara has recently been working on collaborations with German photographer Norbert Guthier. As Guthier travels he selects artists in various cities to work with him on art. Below is one of their most recent collaborations called “The Sky is Crying.”
Barbara’s work can be found in various cities across the country and you can find Barbara most days in her studio at 170 Lyman St in the River Arts District. Or peruse her website here and check out some of my past posts on Barbara here. Enjoy our Monday. Cheers!

Getting to the River Arts District is easy (Here’s a map!). Take advantage of ample parking and hop aboard one of our free trolleys running throughout the Studio Stroll Weekend. The River Arts District consists of a vast array of artists and working studios in 22 former factories and historical buildings nestled along the French Broad River.
More than 180 working studios, many with showrooms and galleries, are open every day, all year round. Our Artists work in paint, pencil, pottery, metal, fiber, glass, wax, paper and more. Come be inspired, shop, meet the artists and watch live demonstrations!
