We love art, we love our Southern artists and we love the Blue Ridge Parkway. That's why we're excited about a new exhibit coming to Blue Spiral 1 Gallery in Asheville.
Blue Ridge Parkway: Long Range View will open on August 30 and will feature 27 Southern artists' interpretations of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway in various forms: paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, glass and quilts.
According to Blue Spiral 1's website, a 10% donation from each sale during the show will go to the Conservation Trust for North Carolina (CTNC) and Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC), two non-profit organizations dedicated to the protection and preservation of the Appalachian landscape.
Blue Ridge Parkway: Long Range View runs from August 30 through October 27, 2007.
Blue Spiral 1 is located at 38 Biltmore Avenue, north of Biltmore Village, about 25 minutes east of us. Their hours are 10am-6pm (Monday-Saturday) and 12pm-5pm (Sunday, April-October).
