still life

by Colby Caldwell

"We walked to a crest, and my grandfather whispered, "I think you are going to get one today." On cue, a squirrel darted across a branch not twenty yards in front of us. But beyond that was another, at about 75 yards. I sighted my gun on the further away one, and squeezed the trigger."

Interview with Meta Commerse

by Anna Helgeson

"The magic is in the way the majority of people here are searching for themselves and they are searching in a way that is honest. They will tell you that they came here to heal or to start over or to do things differently. They came in response to the magnet just like I did. Wanting a community of like-minded souls, I have never lived anywhere with the sense of community that I find here, people sincerely wanting to do their work and to be transformed."

A Passage through the Green World

by Ali McGhee

"Mayapple.  Jack in the Pulpit. Solomon’s Seal.  Trillium, blazing scarlet like a beating heart.  We lifted each from its patch of earth and carried it like a sacred thing to our little plot, encircled with stones from the creek, which was teeming with new spring life."

Different Strokes!

by Anna Helgeson

"There is a legacy of pain in Asheville that has to do with gentrification. It has been passed down from generation to generation. I think the people who move away are generally young and want to get a different perspective, and start a life they design for themselves. 

— Stephanie Hickling Beckman Co-founder and Managing Artistic Director of Different Strokes!

SPOTLIGHT: INSTA-REVIEW of the the 2017 Venice Biennale "Viva Arte Viva"

by Dawn Roe

"There were numerous poignant, charged, and compelling moments to be encountered throughout both exhibition sites at the Biennale (the more traditional museum-like space at the Giardini and the incredibly expansive and sometimes rugged spaces of the Arsenale). And, it has to be said, there was some pure mystical bullshit, as well."

Healing Arts: Hood Huggers

by Ali McGhee

"We’ve got to work to heal our communities and our environment.  We are thinking about this as a whole reconstruction.  We all have to redo and rethink how we treat and act within the environment.  Social enterprise to me is about staying environmentally and socially conscious in an inclusive and just way."

— DeWayne Barton
