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.

Father’s Day Gifts from Mountain Made

Leave a Comment

Oddly enough we owe both Father’s Day and Mother’s Day to two Southern women! According Wikipedia,  Grace Golden Clayton was inspired by Anna Jarvis‘ crusade to establish Mother’s Day.

A couple of months prior, Jarvis had held a celebration for her dead mother in Grafton, West Virginia, a town jut 15 miles  away from Fairmont, WV the home of Grace Clayton.

After the successful promotion of Mother’s Day in Grafton, the first observance of a “Father’s Day” was held on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont by Ms. Clayton.

And so it still goes, a father may know best but the day to honor them always comes second. Yet as Wade Boggs said, “Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad…”

So here are some…

Gifts for the Dad in Your Life

It doesn’t matter, if that special father in your life works out of an executive office suite, a manager’s cubicle or just on a wood door thrown across two filing cabinets in the back room – his office, his work space is important to him.

So this is why we gathered together some of best, yet affordable office and desktop pieces – functional yet beautiful.

We invite you to come by the gallery and see these gift items for yourself…
