RAD

FullSizeRender 25.jpgA one mile street in Asheville, North Carolina is home to over 220 artist studios and galleries. Know as the River Arts District (RAD), this area presents works by artists such as the Pink Dog Creative, Sarah Sneeden and Jeff Pittman and showcases a variety of media from furniture, to photography to oil painting. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

FullSizeRender 3.jpgThe Asheville Regional Airport created a mini gallery to showcase one artist who practices in Asheville’s River Arts District [RAD]. Right now the airport gallery is exhibiting the art of Jonas Gerard. Born in Morocco, Gerard lived in New York City and now currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina. Despite living in North Carolina, Gerard remains influenced by New York and Morocco. While painting, Gerard listens to Moroccan tribal music, Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz, allowing the melodies to inspire him.
