Description:
Tracey Morgan Gallery presents an exhibition from two gallery artists. Laura Letinsky’s explorations in still life photography, both perfectly lit and meticulously composed, are rooted in a 17th Century Dutch-Flemish Vanitas tradition. Letinsky has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and her work has been the subject of five Monographs, most recently Time’s Assignation (Radius Books). Nicholas Hall, based in Brooklyn, New York, creates work that is both captivating and incredibly tactile, intending to activate seemingly customary or even mundane images into one-of-a-kind works that, while 2-Dimensional, feel as much like sculpture as they do photography. The exhibition runs through November 22nd.

Tracey Morgan Gallery presents an exhibition from two gallery artists. Laura Letinsky’s explorations in still life photography, both perfectly lit and meticulously composed, are rooted in a 17th Century Dutch-Flemish Vanitas tradition. Letinsky has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and her work has been the subject of five Monographs, most recently Time’s Assignation (Radius Books). Nicholas Hall, based in Brooklyn, New York, creates work that is both captivating and incredibly tactile, intending to activate seemingly customary or even mundane images into one-of-a-kind works that, while 2-Dimensional, feel as much like sculpture as they do photography. The exhibition runs through November 22nd.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s November show, “Small Works,” features the work of 22 member artists. The show runs November 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, November 3, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The show provides artists the challenge of working within limited perimeters. All pieces in the show will be 11 x 14 inches or smaller. "Placed in an 'unexpected' spot, small artwork can work magic in a room or grouping. I love the effect they have and I especially love creating them," says gallery artist Sally Lordeon. This show is a great opportunity to own work in a wide range of subject matter, media, and styles by some of the most noted local artists in Asheville. Collectors will be able to find landscapes, still lives, and small abstracts. Asheville Gallery of Art hopes art lovers will not only enjoy the show, but will use it to purchase affordable (and packable) works of art for holiday gift giving. The small works, as well as the work of all 31 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of November. 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.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 18 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others. In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched. He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit. Reflecting on well over 20 years of record-making and touring extensively around the US and world, Wilcox says, Music still stretches out before me like the head-lights of a car into the night. Its way beyond where I am, but it shows where Im going. I used to think that my goal was to catch up, but now Im grateful that the music is always going to be way out in front to inspire me.

But she knew there were songs, and they had to get out. Six even years since her critically acclaimed Welder, as well as much personal tumult, there were songs that needed to be born. “If anything, (Exodus) is a pledge of allegiance for the bad girls and the Homecoming Queens who got caught in a scandal. It’s a bill of rights, and a testimony for those good girls who got away with more than they should have.  “I’m slow, and getting slower,” laughs the lanky blond, unapologetically. “I’m taking my time, really drilling down. There were nine versions of ‘Methadone Blues.’ I’ve never done that before. I love that entrenchment and dedication – and I wasn’t going to do any less than what needed to be done.” From Dexter Green’s (also the album’s producer) opening electric guitar, equal parts foreboding and fraught, “Exodus of Venus” hurls a churlish witness to erotic upheaval and the drives that subsume our best notions.  “Exodus” is an exhortation of sexual surrender that pushes past the brink of reason.  For fans of the Florida-born’n’raised Cook, a Grand Ole Opry regular, SiriusXM Outlaw Country hostess and David Letterman favorite, Exodus of Venus will be something of a shock. If she maintains the tang of her drawl, what emerges – beyond Cook’s always vibrant and vivid sense of detail – is a song cycle soaked in turpentine, musk and honey. From the sweltering tumble of B-3 on the funky, shuffling “Methadone Blues” to the elegiac dignity of “Tabitha Tuder’s Mama” and the Velvet Underground on fire bristle of “Brokedown in London on the M25,” Cook’s shouldering a deeper passion for the state of living today – and the crashing into the wall reality we all go through. If in the past Cook relied on wit and a certain dogpatch charm, Venus commands a raw knuckled truth that’s even more searing.  “There hasn’t been a lot to laugh about,” confesses the effervescent songwriter who once penned “It Takes Balls To Be A Woman” with equal parts Dolly Parton pluck and Loretta Lynn brio. “Things have been heavy and dark, and I feel really different. I aspire to be more than clever or dark or poignant, but to be honest. I want that to supersede everything.  “Emotionally, mentally, physically – it’s all been tested,” she continues, “and it set me up straight. It was hard, but it’s a good thing. Really hard lessons in resilience… All of it is in the record.” That resilience rises like steam from the narcotic “Dyin’,” as Cook professes her by any means necessary strength, “Gonna be a diamond, gonna make hay/ If you don’t like it, gonna do it anyway/ Gonna put on the  pistols, gonna cause a scene/ Gonna goddamn save the queen…” Flowing from there to the attenuated starkly haunted “Evacuation,” a slow build of defiance that eschews the easy for holding onto one’s roots – and casting a parallel with New Orleans’ own spirit that mines a deep desire to live, die and celebrate where one’s essence lies.  “During the years when family was dying and houses were burning down and I was in divorce court and David Letterman was calling and doing shows with Anthony Bourdain, the whiplash was almost too much,” Cook admits. “To keep up with all this great stuff, while I’d been sheltered for such a long time from tragedy, it transforms you. It really does.”  Cook emerged a tougher, wiser woman. If her years as a rough stock Minnie Pearl, part comedienne, part chronicler of life beyond the urban hipeoisie, had cast her first glass of champagne ebullience as a sparkling presence of hillbilly authenticity, Exodus of Venus suggests a woman tapping into the force of her true power. Frank, stumbling, angry, exhausted, triumphant, she owns the ragged edges, the torn seams and worn thin places. Joined by hard country soul singer Patty Loveless on “Straight Jacket Love,” she catcalls a frantic surrender, “On and off the wagon/Lighting fire to grease/Knives are made for stabbing/Arms are made for peace…” as the CMA Female Vocalist maintains perfect mountain harmony. “I blind emailed her management, fingers crossed – because I heard her voice all over this record – then sent her two or three songs, saying, ‘This is my record. If you hear anything…’  “She honed right in on ‘Straight Jacket Love.’ Maybe it felt like some real dark Appalachian kind of thing. She has such authentic texture and power when she sings. She shows me what I’m trying to do…” Not that Cook needs any teaching. A kid singer in her late-in-life parents’ country music aspirations, she learned bar life early – and getting by with a pretty smile and a good line. Her mother – diagnosed with uterine cancer at 42 while pregnant with Elizabeth – and “raging alcoholic Daddy” had big plans. “I’m the miracle child sent to heal my father, and I was bewildered by that. I was a princess, but the king was a monster. And if things weren’t okay, I was failing.”  After years of getting by on charm, with dysfunction part of the family’s functionality, it all came apart in Cook’s hands. But in the wreckage of death and divorce, Cook found liberation and emancipation. “I’m not trying to be the good girl anymore, and that brought some joy to all of it. I almost care more – or different,” she explains. “These songs are more poignant. They’re honest, and all about compassion or grace. For myself, and from a place of experience. Not that any of it was wrong, but I look back and have pride for all that happened and what I’ve survived.” On “Cutting Diamonds,” Cook tosses the declaration “She has no line on polished pearls/Those are for the proper girls…” like confetti. Then on the kick’n’snare’n’piano roll underscored “Orange Blossom Trail,” she kicks up a bit of savory dust, with the celebratory toast, “Players talk while Thieves set sail/It’s the fragrant air of the underbelly/ On the Orange Blossom Trail…” “Living on the shady side, there’s a comfort level I have in that kind of environment,” Cook offers. “That’s where the reckless or the brave both say, ‘Yeah, why not?’ I’m doing what I’m supposed to do – (for me, writing these songs) is a necessity. It’s the only power, the only tool, the only weapon I have. “Listen! We’re going from Little Feat to REM, then put Appalachian harmonies on it. It’s all funky grooves with dark guitars, burning guitars. People were tweeting me, ‘Are you keeping it country?’ And the truth is: No, I’m keeping it real. Not to a genre, but to what these songs are. “It’s an imperfect balancing act: a lesson in compassion and grace and tolerance. You know, all these songs are either requiring it or exhibiting it.” Cook laughs as she says this, knowing full well it’s in banging into the furniture and stumbling down the halls that one learns to walk through the dark. “Get out there and make mistakes – and don’t apologize! I’m not ashamed. This happened – and I’ll tell you all about it.”

Their goal is to reproduce the classic, cosmic sound of the legendary band’s original studio recordings in a live setting. The focus of their repertoire is on the seven albums of the Moodies’ classic period, spanning from Days of Future Passed to Seventh Sojourn. They cover most of the well known hits as well as some of the more obscure gems from that era.The band features founding member, Garry Byrne, on keyboard sounds, which includes digital samples of Mike Pinder’s Mellotron, an instrument that was a major characteristic part of The Moody Blues’ sound. On lead vocals, backing vocals and electric bass is Sherman Hoover, who also performs with The Billy Jonas Band and has been playing at Jubilee services for many years.Todd Byington also sings lead vocals and backing vocals while strumming and picking the acoustic guitar. Doubling on acoustic guitar and backing vocals and rocking out on the lead guitar parts is Paul Quick of the local duo, QuickChester. James Wilson plays the drums on an electronic drum kit, which allows him to program sounds that match the original drummer’s palette. Kate Barber alternates between playing the flute and the tambourine and joins in on backing vocals.
