Could you be the voice for an abused/neglected child in the court system? Volunteers needed in Buncombe County North Carolina Guardian ad Litem Program 828-259-3443 or www.volunteerforgal.org for more info No experienced needed – all training and support provided Since January 1, 2017, 360 children have entered the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program – this means that 343 kids are alleged to have been abused/neglected and are in the court system. Of no fault of their own, these kids are typically removed from their home and placed and in foster care or a kinship placement. Why were they removed from the home? Maybe their parents abused substances, had untreated mental health, or engaged in domestic violence – maybe it was a combination of these factors. Either way, it’s the kids who pay the ultimate penalty as their lives are uprooted, they often change school districts and are taken away from everything they know. There are so many parties in a DSS abuse/neglect case: the judge, parents/caretakers, parent’s attorneys, DSS attorneys, GAL attorneys, investigative/in-home/foster care social workers…it’s easy to see how the kids get lost in the system. That’s where the role of the Guardian ad Litem comes in: to advocate and ensure the voice of the child is heard in court, that their wishes for permanency and best interest are made known to all parties. With so many kids in the GAL program, our office is overwhelmed with cases, and we have a critical need for volunteers to represent children’s best interests in court. There is no experience necessary and we provide all training and support. Being a GAL is a challenging and demanding role, but also incredibly rewarding as you literally ensure the child’s voice is heard in court throughout the life of the case. Our next training begins mid-January – visit www.volunteerforgal.org to complete a volunteer application, or call the office at 828-259-3443 for more information. Could you be the voice for a child?

Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art’s May show, “Chasing the Light,” will feature the work of Joyce Schlapkohl who describes her style as, “painterly realism with a strong focal point.” The show runs May 1-31 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 Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, May 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. When the artist moved from Florida to her native North Carolina 19 years ago, she was a watercolor painter and teacher who was then known for her boats, seascapes, and florals. However, she switched to oils almost immediately to capture the local landscape, flowers, animals, and any subject that inspired her with strong light and shadow patterns. “While watercolor training still influences the way I see values, oils add freedom for creating texture and layering paint.” Her formal art training began after earning a Master’s Degree in Business. When a back injury sidelined her, she studied art at Florida Atlantic University and has continued taking workshops with nationally known teachers. “A wonderful part of painting is that you never stop learning and developing your eye for seeing regardless of the medium you use. I’m very fortunate to be able to paint full time. I’m very thankful that I love what I do and can share life’s beauty as I see it. Hopefully the local scenes will stir emotion for the viewer as they have inspired me.” The artist’s studio is in Waynesville, NC. You can find Joyce’s work at Asheville Gallery of Art, Seven Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville. She is a Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her website is www.joycepaints.com and her e-mail is [email protected] Schlapkohl’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of May. 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.

with Prettiest Eyes
Try, if only for a moment, to envision a scenario in which you could still be completely *surprised* by a rock band. Its not easy. In fact, its increasingly rare. A couple of years ago, A Place to Bury Strangers were in search of a new drummer. Lia Simone Braswell, an L.A. native, had recently moved to New York, and was playing drums in shows around Brooklyn just to keep her chops up. As it turned out, APTBS bassist Dion Lunadon caught one of those shows and, after seeing her play, was moved to ask her if shed want to come to a band practice sometime. I told some of my friends about it before I met up with them, Braswell says, of the rehearsal that would soon lead to her joining the band. They told me, Youre just gonna have to keep up as much as you possibly can.To be fair, she had also never seen us live,Lunadon adds. She didnt necessarily know what she was getting into.What she was getting into: For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury StrangersLunadon, founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Braswellhave become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. They dont write setlists. They frequently write new songs mid-set. They deliberately provoke and sabotage sound people in a variety of cruel yet innovative ways. They can and will always surprise you. When something goes wrong on-stage, a lot of bands will crumble under the pressure, says Ackermann. We like the idea of embracing the moment when things go wrong and turning it into the best thing about the show.This April marks the release of Pinned, their fifth full-length and an album that finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. Its their first since the 2016 election, and their first since the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space where Ackerman lived, worked, and created with complete freedom. After DBA closed, I moved to an apartment in Clinton Hill, he says. I couldnt make too much noise, couldnt disturb my neighbors. I would just sit there and write with a drum machine. It had to be about writing a good song and not about being super, sonically loud.There are searing meditations on truth and government-led conspiracies (Execution), as well as haunting, harmonized responses to the tensions of our current political climate (Theres Only One of Us). It all opens with Never Coming Back, a frightening crescendo of group vocals, vertiginous guitar work, and Lunadons unrelenting bass. That song is a big concept, Ackermann says. You make these decisions in your life...youre contemplating whether or not this will be the end. You think of your mortality, those moments you could die and what that means. Youre thinking about that edge of the end, deciding whether or not its over. When youre close to that edge, you could teeter over.Its a clear and honest statement of intent, not just for everything that follows, but for this band as a whole.As things go on, you dont want them to be stagnant,Ackermann says. Being a band for ten years, its hard to keep things moving forward. I see so many bands that have been around and theyre a weaker version of what they used to be. This band is anti-that. We try to push ourselves constantly, with the live shows and the recordings. We always want to get better. Youve got to dig deep and take chances, and sometimes, I questioned that. It took really breaking through to make it work. I think we did that. They definitely did.

Historical Forms, Contemporary Myths 5-Day Workshop With Anja Bartels and Gabriel Kline. May 28-June 1, Monday-Friday 9:30 am-4:30 pm. As humans, we all develop our own personal mythologies. These help us relate to each other and to the world around us. We create our own history filled with characters that enchant or revile us, inspire us to seek higher purpose, or serve as reflections of our own experience. We find meaning in their anecdotal wanderings, adventures, and tragedies. Their stories become parables in our own lives, offering us laws to abide by, bend, or even break. In this way, we are able to uncover more of our own truth. As ceramists, we are also inspired by and connected to the potters who came before us. In this workshop, we will examine the construction methods of several masterpieces of classical pottery from the Greek, Chinese, and Peruvian traditions. We will first analyze and discuss the way these pieces reflect the culture that created them. Then, we will focus on decorating them with images representing modern or contemporary myths, both personal and communal. Techniques taught in this workshop will include team throwing, assembling large pots in sections, stamping and stenciling, sgraffito and mishima, and digital projector image transfer. Level: Intermediate to Advanced. Tuition: $595 + $75 Lab Fee.

Ever wonder why interested prospects are not converting to customers? Or why you aren't retaining as many of your current customers as you expected? And whether something about your product or service is causing these issues and impacting revenue? What can you do about it when budgets are limited and deadlines are tight? Guerrilla Usability studies can reveal all of this, and it doesn't need to be elaborate. Just you, your product, a plate of cookies, and a customer. And best of all, you only need 3-5 real humans for 15 minutes each. This workshop will be led by Dave Michelson, an Applied Research Software Designer at UNC Asheville's National Environmental Modeling and Analysis Center (NEMAC). His 25-year career in the Geospatial and Technology field has enabled him to gain unique insights from work across numerous companies and industries including an engineering firm, a consultancy, a county government, a public school system, and, of course, a startup. Dave's expertise is in designing and building web-based Geospatial tools with an emphasis on incorporating user needs. Dave enables customers and clients to better understand their business issues. He views technologies as a means to remove some of the uncertainty we all face in the world.

There are many variables that affect the quality and state of the milk we use behind the bar. Understanding this chemistry will give students a critical angle when preparing milk-based beverages. Analysis and discussion of milk safety and handling, dairy size and type, sourcing milk for the café, and comparative tastings of milk are followed by clear and concise illustrations and exercises aimed to help baristas pour deliberate latte-art. Milk: Chemistry & Latte Art is most effective for the barista who has already mastered the technique of steaming milk to the appropriate temperature and texture.

The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California.Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with Grammy Award winning producer (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphys) and Flogging Molly founding member Ted Hutt, to come out on Signature Sounds this summer. While the band launched with an old-time style and deeper bluegrass roots (a fateful Craigslist ad got it all started), they recently departed toward a more modern soul sound, still with their mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, a little blues, and roots-rock. The soul-dipped first single of their new collaboration, came out on a 45 with a music video in the end of 2016, with a premiere via Relix Magazine.Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, touring China as a guest of the state department and headlining festivals like Delfest, Floydfest, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and recently Bergenfest (Norway) and Tonder Festival (Denmark). The band received a big wave of attention with their music video that featured famous actor Dick Van Dyke for Never Had to Go, which garnered over 10 million cumulative views.A new album drops this summer and Dustbowl is ready to bring their newest sound the place where funk and folk meet to a bigger audience.

THE DUSTBOWL REVIVAL - FEATURING DICK VAN DYKE - "NEVER HAD TO GO" Dustbowl Revival - "Busted" - Official Video The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal.

Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with Grammy Award winning producer (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphy’s) and Flogging Molly founding member Ted Hutt, to come out on Signature Sounds this summer.

with Carly Taich
Not many people can take something as devastating and tumultuous as a breakup and turn it into an album thick with joyous beats, infectious melodies and lyrics that spin disappointment and desolation into revelatory moments, but Ruby The RabbitFoot is not someone who sees things in simple black and white. On her third album, Divorce Party, she creates a vivid world that stretches far beyond just the songs from videos that straddle the line of performance and art, to her fearless use of fashion, to the music itself, which serves as the thrilling, creative center to her unique universe. Produced by Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Azure Ray), Divorce Party is celebration of life after loss, and the creative renewal that comes from finding light amongst the darkness."I want this to be a soundtrack for anyone going through a transition," says Ruby though this album was written after a particular romantic one, she's not the kind of artist who stays stagnant, anyhow. For this record, she immersed herself deeply into pop music and hip-hop, listening constantly to everything from Beyonc to Taylor Swift and Fiona Apple. "Having your heart broken is something that humans all experience," she ads. "It's how you learn, and how you grow.Beginning with "Beach Flowers," the first song she wrote for the LP and which also kicks of the album, Divorce Party is thick with unusual percussion, shimmering synth licks and ethereal orchestration courtesy of a more experimental approach to instrumentals. "I built you up into a castle in my brain," Ruby sings in her crystalline vocals, "and though it's made of sand, I like making plans just the same." For the Georgia-born artist, the idea of a "beach flower" came to represent how some experiences are as lovely as they are ephemeral but that doesn't make them any less worthy of enjoyment. "A beach flower is something beautiful and temporary," she explains. "You wouldn't plant all your flowers on the beach unless you wanted the ocean to gobble them up."The process of creating Divorce Party took nearly two years from start to finish after 2014's New As Dew, she embarked on a artistic journey that took her everywhere from Georgia to California, where she met collaborator Natalie Neal, who became an instrumental partner in expressing her vision. Neal, a renowned avant-garde director and photographer who has screened her work at Sundance Film Festival, made the ideal match for Ruby. Together, they have been developing the visual palate for Divorce Party, including its stunning first video for "Beach Flowers."Rubys creative expression knows no bounds and her vibrant personality and unique style have led to a host of exciting collaborations as musicians, apparel brands and various creatives have all sought her out to collaborate. One of Urban Outfitter's "Five To Watch In Athens" and hand-picked by Japanese magazine Nero, for a photo spread, Ruby delights in flirting with the fashion world and is just as creative with her image as she is with her music. Ruby made her acting debut in 2014 as Macklemore's love interest in the highly popular video for Fences' single "Arrows," featuring Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.To create Divorce Party, Ruby took the songs down to Athens, Georgia with LeMaster, working with an innovative goal in mind and a new, playful approach to composition. "I wanted more of a pop-sounding record," she says. "I'm a songwriter first and foremost, and I think in the past it's been my nature to pick up the guitar. But in my free time, I love pop music and rap music and R&B. So I had a heavier hand in the style I wanted this time. I learned how to make beats, and learned so much from working with Andy. He has the same love of pop music, and is fearless."That love is clear in songs like "Faucet Love" and "Ancil," which both manage to be stirring and addictive, melding the stickiness of a pop record with experimentation via unexpected horns or skittish rhythm - that could only be tackled by someone who knows no real boundaries. And then there are also moments like "Wish," with a slow-burned eighties vibe, that puts on full display the complexities within her vocal range. On I Hate You Ruby marries beats and an upbeat melody with some deeply cutting lyrics: If I ever see your name in lights I think I'll melon ball my eyes out/ Mail them to you overnight with a note that says/"Surprise! Remember when you used to swim for miles and miles in these baby blues?/I wish you would have drowned, cause I hate you/Oh I do."That breakup was challenging, but I'm good for it," she says. "I learned so much about love, and I am writing and singing better than I ever have. So I'd like to thank my ex.Even though there's this connotation of disruption and heartbreak, divorce parties have a celebratory energy. Every person that we love teaches us, so when it's time to part ways I think it's beautiful to appreciate everything we've gained from the experience. I wrote these songs in a period of separation from a love. I want to release them into the world as a celebration of all that I learned during that time. It's my Divorce Party!
