Fine Art Virtual Exhibit: Crista Matteson “Kindred”
May 31 – Jun 30 all-day
Online The Bender Gallery
Pink Bunny in the Garden
cast glass
7 x 8 x 13 in

Bender Gallery is pleased to announce Kindred, an exhibition for Seattle based mixed media artist Crista Matteson beginning on Friday April 3. Of course, we would have much preferred to have an in-person exhibition for Matteson at the gallery but we still feel very privileged to bring such beauty to our clients and followers at a time when we need it the most.

Matteson’s latest series Kindred stems from her observations and research into the connectedness of all living things as increased urbanization impacts the local ecosystem of her beloved Pacific Northwest. This theme of interconnectedness could not be more applicable to today, as a pandemic spreads the globe and people all over the world are going through the same experiences.

Firefly Gathering
Jun 3 – Jun 7 all-day
Deerfields

The 13th annual Firefly Gathering will take place June 3-7, 2020 at Deerfields in Mills River, NC, just 30 minutes outside of Asheville.

We gather each summer to learn and celebrate the skills necessary to live with the Earth. Our family-friendly classes, experiential learning, and culture bring together folks of all ages.

Each day is full of workshops spanning wilderness survival skills to permaculture, plant identification to cooking over fire, cow milking to bowl carving, basket weaving to blacksmithing. Through our time together at Firefly, we not only share skills to connect to the land, we connect also with ourselves, one another, our ancestors, and our future generations.

Darrell Scott
Jun 13 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Tryon Fine Arts Center

In 2017 and 2018 Darrell opened for and performed with the Zac Brown Band, but these days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage, hiking along the small river, and playing music. He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself at the hips in life. The wordsmithing and craftsmanship of the songs that become timeless─although a lost cause for many who try to write them─ is far from a dying art, thanks to Darrell’s work. He is more so existing creatively at levels we just don’t fathom anymore. He mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don’t always get it right, but that’s the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.
