Arts Council of Henderson County in Hendersonville, NC, Offers Works by Artists of River District in Asheville, NC

The Arts Council of Henderson County is again presenting River District Artists in the Arts Council's D. Samuel Neill Gallery, in downtown Hendersonville, NC, on view from May 7 ­ 29, 2010. 

River District Artists (RDA) is the organization that represents many of the artists working within Asheville's River Arts District, which is increasingly one of the most recognized visual arts districts in the country.

"We are thrilled that the River District Artists are returning to Hendersonville," said Jim Faucett, executive director of The Arts Council. "Last year's exhibition proved very popular with residents and tourists, and was the first time this diverse, eclectic group of artists held a collective show outside of Asheville."

Constance Williams, noted artist and President of the River District Artists, echoes that sentiment, "The artists of the River Arts District are happy to be invited back to Hendersonville, as sharing our artistic experiences is part of what keeps Western North Carolina such a great arts destination."

Williams adds, "the work in the group show represents the unique experience people have when they visit our District, just down the hill from downtown Asheville: open working studios ­ many now open seven days a week ­ a striking diversity of art, delicious food venues and learning opportunities through workshops and classes."

River District Artists is sponsored in part by First Citizens Bank and the Times-News.

The Arts Council of Henderson County is a community organization that advocates for the arts and provides opportunities to enrich the lives of children and adults through the arts by offering exhibits, art education and performances. The Arts Council gallery and offices are handicapped accessible.

The Arts Council is supported in part by the North Carolina Arts Council, the State of North Carolina, the Community Foundation of Henderson County, Henderson County, and the Henderson County Travel and Tourism Bureau.
