First of all, I want to say thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes. I had a great birthday! No big party, just a trip through Asheville, Brevard and on to Highlands to deliver my work at The Bascom. This covered bridge is the entrance to the gallery and it just gets better. The place is stunning!
By the time I got to the front door with my work, I was just about to hyperventilate. I can't wait to see my barns in this barn! There is an opening gala this coming weekend and for just $2500 you get invited to the Friday night dinner (cocktail attire please) and the Saturday bluegrass, barbeque, tickets for four and a table that will seat 8-10 of your cloesest friends. Surely these folks will want to buy a BARN!!!
We had dinner in Highlands, OMG, the food!! The town is heavily laden with meat eaters apparently and we had a hard time finding a restaurant, but finally decided on Wolfgang's. Our server suggested letting the chef prepare a vegetarian entree for us and it was just unreal. I never knew vegetables could have those flavors! We visited galleries in Brevard and Asheville, and quite honestly my head is just about to explode with art! We also stopped by and toured the college campus of Warren Wilson in Asheville, they have a MFA in Creative Writing and this school is one of Wesley's finalists. Really beautiful school. Thanks to Gerry and Wesley for a perfect birthday. What could be better, fresh mountian air, mountain streams, eating amazing food for two days, and just having a great time together! thanks family!!!
