Join us for this informative event exploring Mary's role as prophet and emissary of the kingdom of God. All sessions take place at Brooks-Howell Home, 266 Merrimon Ave. Asheville, NC 28801.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s April show, “Imageries of Life,” features the work of well-known figurative artist Sahar Fakhoury. The show runs April 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, April 7, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The show will present a series of the artist’s new work. “I am exploring the art of portrait with a twist. I maintain the likeness and essence of the subjects while infusing the paintings with vivid light and color. As my work evolves, I explore how much depth I can achieve by layering the figure and overlapping positions, pushing some layers in and pulling others out. I take my subjects out of their original context, which leaves room for the viewer’s interpretation and imagination as to where and why this took place.” Fakhoury says the majority of her subjects are people she encounters on the street. “Sometimes I have a certain idea in mind and I look for people to match, and, at other times, I see a person who sparks an idea for a painting.” While the artist also paints landscapes and still lifes, she continues to be fascinated by the human figure. “Figures in motion represent the instability of our life. Moving to another city or country, starting new jobs, and experiencing a sudden change in health are just some examples. Some of us put on several hats daily.” The artist has been a resident of the Asheville area for the past 27 years. She has a BFA from UNC Asheville and teaches oil painting from her studio in Asheville’s River Arts District. Fakhoury has exhibited her work in solo and group shows in several states and abroad. Her work hangs in both public and private collections around the world. Fakhoury's work, as well as the work of the other 30 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of April. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Just across the street from the Omni Grove Park Inn lies a destination unlike any other: Grovewood Village, housed in the historic weaving and woodworking complex of Biltmore Industries - a groundbreaking enterprise in the history of American craft and textiles, with ties to George and Edith Vanderbilt, Edwin Wiley Grove, and Fred Loring Seely. In its heyday, Biltmore Industries had a total of 40 looms in steady operation, producing bolts of some of the highest quality homespun fabric in the country, worn by U.S. presidents, first ladies, and many American icons. Learn the story of Biltmore Industries on a guided history tour, offered Wednesday - Saturday at 1pm during April – December. The tour includes a visit to the historic Dye House in Grovewood Village (usually closed to the public), where the original looms, carding machines, mule spinners, and dye vats used to make Biltmore Handwoven Homespun can still be viewed. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and are geared towards adults. There is no charge to take the tour, but donations are appreciated. Spots are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Maximum 25 people per tour. Meet your guide at the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum in Grovewood Village.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts, including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel. Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score makes Guys and Dolls a crowd pleaser. The large cast features both a variety of ensemble and star roles. With a great collection of production resources from MTI, this highly producible show is a treat for audiences and performers of any age. $10 - $10.00 $15 - $15.00 $20 - $20.00

After selling out our Samhain Celebration last Halloween, Desert Dwellers are BACK at New Mountain AVL with support from Frameworks. Tickets are $15 in advance and go on sale Friday, March 3rd at noon. If the last few shows with this incredible duo are any indication, you'll want to snag your tickets fast before they're gone! • More about Desert Dwellers • Desert Dwellers consists of Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe, who began their careers as independent music producers and DJs in the deserts of New Mexico and California. Coming together in the late ’90s after connecting through the legendary Moontribe scene, today the duo enjoys a reputation as one of the most pioneering and prolific downtempo, psy-bass, and tribal trance acts in the United States. Desert Dwellers have toured extensively across six continents, spent a 7-week stretch on the road with renowned psychedelic artist Shpongle, and have performed at dozens of festivals, most notably Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, Envision, Coachella, Rainbow Serpent, and Boom. Taking a new approach to digital production, Amani and Treavor have combined the raw sounds of the natural world while skillfully blended deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and cross-cultural instrumentation into sonic incense for the mind and body. Bringing the electronic music vibe to the yoga scene, and the sounds of yoga to the electronic dance scene, Desert Dwellers’ global sounds are the bridge between the worlds of dance and movement.
