CURVE Studios Turns 30
October 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
CURVE Studios and Garden is celebrating 30 years in Asheville’s River Arts District as part of the RAD Second Saturday Celebration on Oct. 12. Studios will be open from 10am-6pm with demonstrations, classes, an artist talk, birthday cake and, in keeping with CURVE’s long tradition of bringing people to art and art to life, the unveiling of a public art sculpture in the garden. Silver River Center for Chair Caning, the only chair caning school and museum in the USA, has created an 8-foot tall chair arch to honor Torno’s three decades of contributions to the RAD. Built by chair nerds Brandy Clements, Dave Klingler, and Lucy Kruesel, the CURVE garden Chair Arch is inspired by a chair arch built in 1877 by the furniture makers of High Wycombe, UK to welcome Queen Victoria. The Chair Arch will be unveiled at 4:30pm in the garden.
