Come be inspired to “press on” as Paul did in difficult times both in his personal life and in the life of the church.

Asheville Gallery of Art May 2018 Show “Chasing the Light” “Chasing the Light” for May at Asheville Gallery of Art 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.

In uncertain days like these, many Christians tend to hunker down, avoid risk, and play it safe. But the book of Joshua shows us now is the time for bold choices—for courageously taking new ground with God and for God. Come be inspired to turn your back on fear and make brave, life-enlarging choices. Learn how to embrace each new season; make decisions based on God’s promises rather than your perspective; live to rescue lost souls, attack your “blessing robbers;” and confront strongholds. Rise up and go for the “more” God is calling you to.

Organic Growers School’s new series of Homestead Tours showcases how home-growers in Western North Carolina (WNC) are transforming their land into thriving, productive, and resilient ecosystems. Our goal is to inspire you to embark on your own homesteading journey by providing an opportunity to tour a working homestead. Tours occur once per month, each time at a different homestead, and they are always followed by an optional group potluck! Lorri Bura is a co-owner of the USDA Organic certified farm, Green Heart Gardens, a member of the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farming Coalition, and an educator and host to WWOOF interns and homeless veterans. With 20 acres in total, Lorri is venturing into woodland farming and continuously expanding the number of crops she grows each season. The majority of work at Green Heart Gardens is done by hand, and Lorri sources most of her fertilizer, mulch, and water on the property. Her farm “apothecary” is a center for healing and education, and her medicinal herbs can be found in stores around Asheville.
