Second Saturday at Foundation Studios

  • This event has passed.

April 13, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Another Second Saturday in the River Arts District of Asheville! We’ll open at 12 pm as usual, which is the same time the ArtsAVL free trolley starts running. You can hop on and hop off between downtown and the RAD until 6 pm!

Enjoy your selection of beverage from a wide range of beer, cider, wine, soda, kombucha, and more while browsing our 90+ resident artists’ studios and displays, seeing demonstrations from artists such as Chrysalis Wing Art (depicted in the cover photo), the continuation of our Mandala Madness group showcase, and more!

Each one of Nara’s Chrysalis Wing Art pieces involves a series of steps, starting from ethically and sustainably sourcing the insect specimens, which come to her with the wings closed, folded above their bodies. They go through a process of re-hydrating, pinning, drying, posing and framing to become the artwork you see displayed at Foundation Studios. For this edition of Second Saturday, Nara will be doing a live pinning of a few dozen butterflies and moths. You’ll get to see how fascinating these beauties are and why so many people are obsessed with them! Everyone is welcome to come by, ask questions and share this passion with Nara. The live pinning starts at 1p.m. until the last insect goes on the board.

Later in the evening, enjoy live music by Native Bones Tribal Band, a local Indigenous Native American group. Native Bones plays Contemporary Indigenous Earth Music, Caribbean Latin Rhythms, Dynamic Drum Chops, Dance Beats, and Melodic Songs.

Native Bones Music is under the record label Akitchitay’s Indigenous Music. All Streams, Local Radio and on Bandcamp is where you can hear their music.
