Preserving a Picturesque America (P.A.P.A.) is partnering with the Asheville Urban Landscape Painters to go to the location where Harry Fenn originally painted Chimney Rock circa 1870. We will be briefing everyone on the history then guiding you to the location.
We will meet at Hickory Nut Gorge Brewery in the town of Chimney Rock on Thursday, May 30th from 9:30 AM until around 5:30 PM. It is drop-in style, so feel free to come and stay as long as you like. We have special access to the venue’s multi-leveled riverside patios. I am looking forward to a private and quiet morning to create by the river and enjoy the fellowship.
Our goal is to have new artwork of all the vantage points depicted in the French Broad chapter to be completed this year – and we want you to be a part of the experience! By re-visiting these locations you will be a part of the modern version of the original conservation movement started by this publication and have an opportunity to be a part of the new release of “Rediscovering A Picturesque America”.
