Yes, Virginia, there is a trolley!

The Big Reveal is here - this Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Each ½ hour from 5 p.m. to 7:30, free trolley rides to view the new banners on downtown streets and in Historic 7th Avenue will be offered. These ArtScape Trolley Tours are offered in conjunction with the 10th annual Blue Bucket Campaign, held in April — Autism Awareness Month — to benefit Henderson County Exceptional Children’s Services. The funds are earmarked for field trips, bus rides, and educational materials for Henderson County’s exceptional children. The ArtScape Trolley Tours, provided by The Trolley Company and Mike’s on Main restaurant, will pick up and return passengers in front of Woodlands Gallery, 419 N. Main St. in Hendersonville. 

And the Winner Is...

...Sophia Beck!. Eighth-grader Sophia Beck’s piece Self Portrait After Vincent Van Gogh has been chosen to represent the youth category at the upcoming reveal of the 2018 ArtScape banners in downtown Hendersonville.  Beck’s work was recently on exhibit as one of 92 pieces by young artists in the Artists of Tomorrow show curated by the Arts Council of Henderson County.   A student of artist Costanza Knight, Beck will be the first young artist under 18 years old to exhibit in ArtScape.

Come see Sophia's Self Portrait After Vincent Van Gogh and all the new work from the 49 artists selected for this year's Artscape at the Big Reveal on Friday, April 6. The celebration/reception/opening exhibition from 5 to 7:30 p.m. takes place at Art Mob Studios & Marketplace, 124 4th Avenue East; at Art On 4th Gallery & Studio at 125 4th Avenue West; and at Woodlands Gallery, 419 N. Main Street in Hendersonville.  Live music, appetizers, and drinks will be provided at all locations.
