Indoor and Outdoor art

I've been off for a few days, to Asheville, North Carolina.

What a wonderful community! Great public art and lots of excellent galleries. All nestled in some of the most exquisite scenery in this part of the country. We went to the Southern Highlands Craft show, one of the best, in my opinion.

I'll post some more photos soon. We spent some time at the Gallery of the Mountains in the Grove Park Inn. That hotel is a work of art, too, and a miracle of engineering when you see the photos of how it was built, hauling those huge rocks up the mountain.

Also on the grounds of the Grove Park Inn is the Grovewood Gallery, probably my favorite. They display some excellent quilts on the walls, especially in the area where they have fine handmade furniture.  

There is a lot of wonderful outdoor art on the grounds, too.

We also managed to get to the Bellagio Gallery, another one of my favorites.

In addition, we attended a wedding nearby in Waynesville. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding at The Yellow House, an elegant B & B on five acres of beautifully landscaped mountain property. A wonderful weekend!!
