Farm to Table: American Silver

HANK – elegant ewer with inscription

May 31 – October 5, 2014

Farm to Table: American Silver highlights different but inter-connected uses of American silver – agricultural awards and table service – as they progressed over the last 150 years. Farm to Table and associated programs will enable visitors to experience the farms and tables of the region as they reflect the stylistic changes of each era. Farm to Table brings new meaning to the “art of eating,” treating audiences to an intimate experience of handmade American silver objects celebrating our food and farms and appearing on our tables through modern times.

The exhibition will feature a variety of forms and objects representative of agricultural presentation silver and fine table settings, including silverware, hollowware and serving pieces. For example, the agricultural silver component will feature medals, trophies and engraved hollowware. Silverware for the table will span from Francis I to contemporary designs. Table settings and serving pieces will exemplify the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Craft styles.

Public Programs

The Museum has planned a series of public programs that contribute to the interpretation of the Farm to Table: American Silver exhibition. Educational programs will include a series of four cooking classes led by celebrated local chefs; a Dinner & A Movie event featuring a farm-to-table style dinner; engaging lectures by exhibition curators and silver collectors; and a special opening event aimed at attracting diverse audiences to the Museum. Check back for specific programming dates.

Artist Sharon Louden Brings Community to the Asheville Art Museum

DSC_003113

On view July 19, 2014–Ongoing

The Asheville Art Museum is thrilled to present the second work in the Museum’s Artworks Project Space—artist Sharon Louden’s innovative installation Community. This installation is a continued conversation based on a series of work that Louden started in 2013 that traces its path through installation, animation, painting and drawing. In each genre, her gestures create an implication of dance — movement and energy — transposed against the resistance of fixed squares and rectangles of color.

Sharon M. Louden graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Yale University, School of Art. Her work has been exhibited in numerous venues, including the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, the Drawing Center, Carnegie Mellon University, Birmingham Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Louden’s work is held in major public and private collections, including the Neuberger Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, National Gallery of Art, Arkansas Arts Center, Yale University Art Gallery and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Louden has taught for 20 years since graduating from Yale in 1991. Her teaching experience includes studio and professional practice classes for students of all levels in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Louden is also the editor of a peer reviewed book published by Intellect Books and distributed by the University of Chicago Press entitled Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 Working Artists.

Community: Sharon Louden opens to the public on July 19. The exhibition is sponsored by the John and Robyn Horn Foundation. More information is available at www.ashevilleart.org.

Third Annual Physical Education Symposium at UNC Asheville

Third Annual Physical Education Symposium at UNC Asheville Emphasizes Social Media

Finding creative ways to use social media in physical education will be a leading theme when the North Carolina Center for Health and Wellness (NCCHW) at UNC Asheville hosts the third annual National Physical Education (PE) Institute, July 28-30.

Each year, hundreds of physical education teachers from K-12 schools all over the country and abroad have attended the institute, which takes place at UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center. With a mission to provide schools and school districts with tools, resources and practical approaches for “Linking Curriculum to Assessment,” this year’s National PE Institute will have a significant emphasis on social media in physical education.

UNC Asheville mass communication students Molly Smithson and Emma Anderson and Assistant Professor Sonya DiPalma will facilitate social media learning sessions with attendees at the institute’s first ever “Blog Nest,” and will present on utilizing social media to increase PE teachers’ visibility. During the institute, participants and the public will also converse via Twitter about ways to improve physical education; follow #PEInstitute14 to join in the conversation.

Keynote presenters at the 2014 National PE Institute will include:

  • Joey Feith, physical educator from Montreal, Canada, self-described social media geek and creator of ThePhysicalEducator.com,
  • Jean Blaydes Moize, founder of Action Based Learning, which combines neuroscience with teacher-friendly, kid-approved strategies for learning through movement,
  • Bob Pangrazi, professor emeritus at Arizona State University and author of books on dynamic physical education for elementary and secondary schools,
  • Guest speaker Shannon Miller, winner of seven Olympic medals in gymnastics and president of the Shannon Miller Foundation, dedicated to fighting childhood obesity.

“We believe that in order for us to be the best, we must learn from the best,” said Artie Kamiya, National PE Institute director, and president/founder of theGreat Activities Publishing Company. “To this end, we are dedicated to assisting the many teachers, administrators, presenters, and keynoters who gather in Asheville each year.”

For the first time, NCCHW has awarded 16 physical education teachers from K-12 schools in North Carolina with fellowships to the National PE Institute. These NCCHW Fellows will facilitate social media throughout their institute experience and come away from the institute with training to incorporate social media in their schools’ physical education programs.

“We have a great cross-section of administrators and teachers throughout North Carolina for the NCCHW Fellows program. There is a lot of excitement and enthusiasm about expanding their use of social media in their teaching,” said NCCHW Executive Director David Gardner. “My hope is that they will share that enthusiasm and excitement with other participants so that this whole movement toward social media in physical education really begins to grow throughout the profession.”

BILL MORRIS presents his novel MOTOR CITY BURNING

07/29/2014 7:00 pm

From the critically-acclaimed author of Motor City and All Souls’ Day, Motor City Burning is a hard-boiled thriller that touches on the SNCC, the race riots in 1968 Detroit, and all the swirling cultural and political conflict of that era. Of Motor City Burning, Nelson DeMille, author of dozens of beloved crime novels, says: “A wonderfully atmospheric novel that captures time and place, an illumination of a pivotal point in history. Bill Morris is an exceptionally gifted and savvy writer. The comparison to Graham Greene is fully merited.” A native of Detroit, Morris’s work has appeared in Granta, the New York Times, The Washington Post Magazine, L.A. Weekly, and Popular Mechanics among others.
