Woolworth Walk: this gallery is housed in the former store, and showcases the work of local artists. We had visited 7 years ago, and looked forward to seeing it again. Some highlights:
Glass artist Charles Donaldson's bold colors and swooping curves and slashes,
Una Barrett's "relics of a new age" jewelry, and Cynthia Decker's digital art were standouts.

I've long admired Myra Burg's "Quiet Oboes," from advertisements in art magazines, but I'd never seen one in person. New Morning Gallery had a collection of them. I was surprised to see the large sizes, and the color combinations are ones which speak to me.
Because it was Sunday, we didn't get to see Blue Spiral Gallery or Bellagio, but since we'd been to each before, we weren't too disappointed.
Our trip ended with a quick drive to Hendersonville, but that's yet another post....stay tuned!
