What is an Asheville Art Walk?

What is an Art Walk?

Just about any size city, town or hamlet, nowadays has an art walk of some kind. And the Asheville Downtown Art Walk is no different.

An Art Walk is self-guided and self-paced tour of small businesses or organizations that specialize in local arts and crafts.

An Art Walk can be held monthly, annually or quarterly. It can be run by organized local galleries, by a chamber of commerce or with just a handful of merchants banding together.

Also called “The Vine that Ate the South” since kudzu vines have been known to cover up and choke hillsides, native shrubs, trees, empty buildings and derlict cars with equal abandon.

Which why the Kudzu baskets created by artist Matt Tommey seem so appealing to many people who have seen the destructive power of these vines. (more…)
