On a recent day trip about 1 ½ hours west of Hickory, I had the opportunity to visit the River Arts District of Asheville. The River Arts District Artist (RADA) is an area of revitalized industrial and historic buildings beside the French Broad River. These buildings have been converted into studios for artists. The RADA project began in the mid-80s as a home for regional artists and now houses 180 various studios, galleries and showrooms dealing in all types of art, along with an abundance of eateries. The artists use a wide array of media, including pencil, paints, metal, glass, wax and various other materials. Choosing from the wide variety of beautiful sculptures, paintings, ceramic items and antiques is a difficult and thoroughly fun decision. Although this was a brief getaway, I would suggest a weekend trip to really take in all the sights and sounds.
