What a blast! The artists of Asheville's famed River Arts District decided to have "2nd Saturdays", meaning the galleries and studios will be busy! There will be shows, demonstrations, workshops, and of course, artists working and sharing "why they do what they do".
I was at Eco-Depot Marketplace. My plan was to paint a new vessel titled "Sea Glass". Named because the fibers (Alpaca and wool) look just like sea glass. I also took a "re-claimed" denim jacket to embellish with embroidery stitches. Here's what really happened:
Not one bit of painting, nor one French knot! Just hours of talking with the many people who stopped by! People from Asheville and people from far away. People that stopped by because they are interested in art. Also, they love to hear an artist talk about their creative process and vision.
There was live music and great eats, too. Mark your calendars...see you on April 14th
