We are thrilled to announce a new and exciting partnership with the Saints of Paints (SOP). Join us Friday, August 9th or Thursday, August 22nd at 5:30 PM to learn how you can be involved in this unique experience. Guests will learn about upcoming opportunities to get involved, including having their work shown at a forthcoming exhibition, joining a “paint out,” exploring volunteer needs, and how to become a donor.
These events will also be used to announce our May 1st Preserving A Picturesque America: The French Broad serial publication launch party and PAPA/SOP art exhibition. These will be relaxed events featuring light fare and donated beer/wine from Asheville Brewing Company.
As many of you know, The Saints of Paint are a group of artists based in Asheville who are collectively using their talents to raise funds for groups dedicated to preserving the environment, caring for animals, and working for positive social change. They host shows to support non-profit groups whose work they find inspirational. Saints of Paint recently helped raise awareness and funds for the Appalachian Barn Alliance and the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.
PAPA co-founder Scott Varn says, “We are very excited to be working with the amazing artists of Saints of Paint. They share our vision that the arts have, and can still be a voice to protect our natural landscape. Saints of Paint has helped so many conservation groups over the years and we are proud that they chose to collaborate with us on our spring event.”
