Description:
The Good Making of Good Things investigates Craft Horizons, a watershed publication, which ran from 1941-1979, and explores how the magazine documented and shaped the concept of craft as a movement, career, way of life, and cultural phenomenon. During its nearly forty years in print, Craft Horizons documented the craft movement as it happened. This exhibition pairs works by makers featured in the magazine with articles, reviews, and letters from readers to illustrate the essential role it played in the development of craft and its cultural connections. In a pre-Internet era, Craft Horizons was the field’s tutorial guide, its social network, and its image-sharing database. It gave the artist, enthusiast, scholar, or casual hobbyist access to all that occurred in craft. The magazine began as a humble unnamed newsletter in 1941, bringing together a like-minded community that had yet to connect nationally. By the 1970s, Craft Horizons had grown into the field’s leading voice. In 1979, the American Craft Council, its publisher, rebranded it as American Craft, which is still in print today. Join us for the exhibition's reception: Friday, January 20, 2017 6:30 - 8:30 pm Public tour begins at 7:30 pm The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941–1979 is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Elizabeth Essner, Lily Kane, and Meaghan Roddy and organized by CCCD, on view at CCCD's Benchspace Gallery & Workshop January 20, 2017 - May 20, 2017. The CCCD Curatorial Fellowship is made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Rotasa Foundation with additional support from Gary Ferraro and Lorne Lassiter. All Craft Horizons images and content owned by the American Craft Council and provided courtesy of the ACC Library & Archives. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

Description:
Brought together by family ties and a shared appreciation for folk, pop-rock, and roots music, The Currys are an Americana trio featuring Jimmy, Tommy, and Galen Curry. They're relatives — two brothers and one cousin, to be exact — and like many family groups, their songs are anchored by the sort of elastic, entwined harmonies that only seem to exist among kin. On their second record, West of Here, their songwriting chops match those interlocking voices, with all three members contributing songs to an album that deals with the constant search for one's home. It's an album that was born on the road. Following the release of the band's official debut, Follow, The Currys packed up their van and spent nearly two years on tour, playing everywhere from Los Angeles to a string of oysters bars in the Florida panhandle. Those shows tightened up the band's melody-driven sound — a sound captured by producers Chris Keup and Stewart Myers (Lifehouse, Jason Mraz) on West of Here's 13 songs — but it also found them questioning their roots. Brothers Tommy and Jimmy Curry had grown up in the Sunshine State, after all, while Galen spent his childhood in upstate New York. Years later, all three relocated to the Appalachian town of Charlottesville, Virginia, where the band's audience began to swell. Yet here they were, traveling across the country for months at a time, asking themselves where their home base really was. West of Here doesn't give any easy answers, but it does offer up plenty of warm, wistful songs whose influences are just as wide-ranging as The Currys' travels. Tracks like "Restless" and "Hold Me Here" swirl piano, mandolin, bass, guitar and light percussion into the same package, with hooks and harmonies leading the charge. Like the Avett Brothers, The Currys know when to crank up their rootsy stomp. Their music reaches far beyond that genre, though, taking cues from the epic sweep of Bruce Springsteen, the song-based storytelling of Ray LaMontagne and Bob Schneider, the rhythmic soul of Marvin Gaye, and even the poppy punch of Justin Timberlake. The result is an album that ebbs and flows, with The Currys mixing up their sound out of multiple ingredients.

Bluetech returns to New Mountain AVL on Thursday, January 26th! Tickets go on sale Friday, December 2nd for just $10 in advance! Burrowing into liminal space, that forgotten zone between the organic and the inorganic, reality and surreality, that’s the place Bluetech calls home. Boundless cosmic beats stretch out across sprawling ambient soundscapes. Melodic strings pluck and shimmer; echoing voices expand and contract over the electronic landscape. You can’t pin down Evan Bartholomew, and there’s no sense trying. Over a decade of releases has brought Bluetech’s music to fans of downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent, and polyrhythmic percussion. From his homebase in the far-flung islands of Hawai’i, Bartholomew transcends the constructs normally associated with a calculated “electronic artist,” pursuing music with meaning and purpose. Choosing to spend his off-stage time meticulously tweaking precision productions, building the solar-powered studio of his dreams, running his music and arts webzine Nomadculture.net, or putting in time on his Critical Beats imprint—dedicated to preserving and protecting Earth’s remaining rainforests—Evan shirks preconceptions of fellow superstar producers. There’s no bravado, no boasting; just the gentle tendrils of careful composition stretching and seeking; awakening, inspiring, and delighting fans across the country and around the world. Bluetech’s forthcoming collection, Spacehop Chronicles Vol 1, sets out to explore a new realm of his unique music, pulling equally on his training as a classical musician with nomadic harmonic progressions and a deep awareness of music as a kinetic force with body moving beat mechanics, and as always, it’s all inside that space in-between.

Description:
Jamie McCluskey is turning 12! and you're invited to join the Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble as they celebrate THE BIG DAY! When their comedy show 'Happy Birthday, Stupid Kid!' hits the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival, there'll be games, goodie bags, a birthday cake and plenty of mayhem. Jamie may be just a "stupid kid," but it's the adults who are out of control in this improvised and interactive birthday party. You'll get to join in the fun while witnessing the over-the-top antics of Jamie's family. Conceived by NannetteDeasy Directed by Robert Baumgardner Presented by IRTE - The Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble www.irteinfo.com #ashevillefringe
