Woolworth Walk is a uniquely Asheville experience; a privately and locally owned gallery in the heart of downtown, located in a historic building and representing local artists exclusively. It's complete with a working soda fountain!
Our space is in the lower level, where all 'new to the gallery' artists start out. We purchased the lights from the previous artist and set about plans to paint the walls white. The flooring is original, stone or ceramic is our best guess....it desperately needs cleaning!
Once we divided up the space.....armed with measurements of my section, I taped off our guest room floor to help me decide what pieces would make the best use of the space. We've exhibited several times at the NC Arboretum where we had the luxury of displaying 90-100 pieces.....that is NOT the case here. We pay for every square inch so it's important to utilize it!
Besides wall art, I'm hoping there will be a lot of interest in the felted bowls/baskets I so enjoy making. I planned on using one of the many ladders scattered about our home but ended up deciding on this one. It was made from recycled barn wood, with narrow shelves rather than steps. I stored baskets filled with all sorts of handy items that I use constantly in my studio.Even with measurements available, I found it necessary to visually ascertain how it would look.
Taking the time to preview how some of my pieces would fit was beneficial.
This week we were back at our space to paint.Not surprising, it would require two coats......ever heard the term "watching paint dry"? We were definitely doing that....anxious to get on with the transformation.
And here it is......booth # 235 - Woolworth Walk - Asheville, NC
Later this week we will hang our work, so check back if you care to follow our progress......it's all so very exciting for us!
