Holy Fall in Ashevegas!
To see some photos of the events listed in the last post, check out the Go Chair Repair website: http://gochairrepair.com/news/. There was just too much to list in one post, so I’m continuing here. First and foremost:
Holiday Wine Tasting, Sale, & FOOD DRIVE for Manna Food Bank at Studio 375…….Saturday December 10 4-7pm

375 Depot Street in River Arts District…Asheville, NC 28801 828-707-4553
The evolution of Planet Art: we’re doing away with the art exchange…for now! All art exchange items are on sale up to 50% off! Some lucky folks have gotten very cool framed art at unheard of prices, but we feel that the River Arts District is such a unique entity, that having framed prints not by local artists is paradoxical to the vibe. (Hint: it’s also a great way to get a nice frame for super cheap, just remove the art!)
Shop LOCAL this holiday season on Planet Art! We’ve got new artists & new work by our favorite local artists:
Stacey MacDonagh has been busy making felted bottle kozies…she can’t keep ‘em in stock, they are so popular! Paw prints, planets, fish, & owls in fun colors will be great stocking stuffers, or just ‘cuz they’re awesome! She has recently finished a series of original acrylic mountain scenes on 4 x 4 canvas boxes, and of course, her hand printed lino-cut cards are a steal of a deal! Is there anything she doesn ‘t do?! Price range $3-$25!!
has been making really cool bookmarks, using her photography and other scrap images to create U R Here Bookmarks. Each has an image pointing to where you left off on the page. Very fun and only $5! Great stocking stuffers!
Bryan Federico, a New Orleans native has recently left Asheville to return to his home after starting a family, but he left some fantasticly unique Asheville Art behind. We got note cards, giclee boxes, matted prints and posters with the most awesome Asheville ART EVER! $5-$40!!!
has some work on display. She does amazing, colorful whimsical paintings that are so precise and detailed, they look like they’re done with a computer…but they most certainly are not. We’ve got chairs, cars, trees, and ferris wheels in prints and notecards. $15-$50.
Johnnie Stansfield & Beth Horton
are doing some great work with acrylics, impressive original paintings at impressively reasonable prices…
Fall Studio Stroll was a great success, and a ton of fun.
The River Arts Galaxy continues to evolve and prosper. We had tons of fun with our colleagues at the Wig Out Post-Stroll Party. For more information of happenings in the Galaxy, check www.ashevillerad.com or www.riverartsdistrict.com.
