If you're going to be in Asheville this weekend, you're in luck. This Friday will see the final Art Walk of the year.
Sponsored by the Asheville Downtown Gallery Association, the Art Walk begins with a map that shows 24 galleries. Each will have their doors open, wine bottles uncorked, and hors d'ouevres laid on tables. It's a wonderful opportunity to soak in some art, get some walking exercise, and have a few drinks with friends and family.
This is a great time of the year to gallery hop. Many of the paintings and photos on display feature autumn scenes and warm fall colors. Other jewelry and craft shops have beefed up their inventories in anticipation of the Christmas season.
Remember, the nights are getting cool in the mountains, so bring a light jacket.
