Paris of the South–really

The owners of the newly restored Windsor Boutique Hotel in Asheville are showing my art in the hotel’s public spaces.  You can see some of North Carolina’s oft-overlooked beauty on its walls.

The hotel sits in the heart of downtown and is a quick walk from restaurants, bars, shopping, festivals, etc.  The building itself wears its old fabric gracefully and positively gleams with old wood.  http://www.windsorasheville.com/

Hanging alongside my work is that of Alisa Lumbreras, about the hardest-working artist I know.  She paints and sculpts with joy.  You can see some of that joy here: http://www.cottonmillstudiosnc.com/young-artists-classes.html

I’m grateful to the owners and staff for choosing me and my fellow Ashevilleans.  There is a difference between airlifiting a load of imported culture onto a city and letting the city produce its own culture, and the folks at the Windsor have chosen the better course.
