This was the view from our hotel, the Renaissance Asheville. It's a great hotel in easy walking distance of everything downtown, with a heated indoor pool (yay!). We took advantage of their Biltmore package, so we also got tickets through them.
Black Mountain College, where Josef Albers taught youngsters like Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Asheville has plenty of pretty public art, like these statues of alley cats on Wall Street.
Woolworth Walk, an art gallery in a former Woolworth's building (which still has a soda fountain!). There are similar art stalls at the Kress Emporium.
Haen Gallery; I loved everything in it. We loved these super huge and super shiny tree paintings by Clayton Santiago.
I also fell in love with the work of Signe & Genna Grushovenko, which we saw at the 16 Patton gallery.
Tomorrow, if you're interested, I'll share pics from our favorite eats and later, from our visit to Biltmore! Thanks for sticking around to read about my vacations!
