Things to do in Asheville – April’s Fool Art Walk

| Comments Off on Things to do in Asheville – April’s Fool Art Walk

The first of the summer Downtown Asheville Art Walks will be held on Friday, April 1st, 2011 from 5PM to 8PM.  Mountain Made will join in the celebration by hosting a gallery reception with light refreshments along with several live events.

We will have entertainment in the form of  live music from various of our local mountian musicians.

Plus we will also be presenting a live woodworking demonstration by the
Western North Carolina Marquetry Group. Read more about the art of “painting with wood” here.

But What is an Art Walk?

“Art walks are wonderful, yet many people still aren’t sure what one is” says Melinda Knies, manager of the Mountain Made art gallery.

“For many people, browsing around an art gallery can seem very intimidating. Some people think galleries are stuffy places where they won’t be allowed to touch anything or they worry if they are just looking they will be expected to buy something!”

Asheville's Art Walk Series

“This is just not true!  It was because of these fears that our gallery along with the other members of the Downtown Art Gallery Association developed this series of art walks for Asheville.”

“An art walk is simply a free public event, where anyone can get together with friends and literally walk or visit the various participating art galleries, restaurants, and other places of interest in the downtown area.”

“We would love for you to come by the gallery during the Art Walk and listen to the music and enjoy our spring-fling event.” Knies says.
