A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

Asheville 6/1/09

Our main objective for this trip was to visit the Great Smokey Mountain  National Park when the   Blue Ridge Parkway was open to visitors, and the weather would allow out of door activities.   Still ... NO VISIT visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains would be complete  for us without a visit to  Asheville, NC.  First of all it is a major art community/center in the Untied States.  Secondly, it is a truly beautiful and vibrant  city.  By allocating our Asheville activities to the hours too  late in the day for  mountain activities we managed to get in a visit  to some of the more interesting attractions for us e.g. 

 The Blue Spiral Gallery  (above) has some of the best Fine Art Crafts in the US and a good collection of less well know American artists (who( who should be better appreciated).  We highly recommend a visit to  - 38 Biltmore Avenue 
Part performing Artist/showman, Full-time extrovert.. Jonas Gerard's studion / gallery in the river district  is just plain fun
