I am behind in these posts! Last Wednesday, I went to visit the First Baptist Church in Asheville. Designed by the renowned Douglas Ellington, the structure was completed in 1927. This architectural gem is modeled after Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy. His famous "feather motif" was first used in this building, representing the palm frond associated with Palm Sunday. Lovely chat with Music Director, Clark Sorrells, who told me so much about this beautiful building. Pic below is looking up at the dome and some of the details on the outside. Can't wait to next Wednesday. And there's sooooo much to see here!
