Join us Friday, June 8th for our summer installment of Eat Your ART Out! This charity dinner benefits the NC Glass Center and will be held at Blue Spiral 1 gallery. Each ticket includes a hand-blown drinking glass from an artist at the NCGC.
Chef Jacob Whitman of Native Kitchen and Asheville-based Chef Dan Silo will be creating a 5 course dinner. Each dish will be paired with a glass of wine provided by the Biltmore Estate Winery and inspired by a work of art from our "Glass Takeover" exhibition. Prior to the seated dinner a cocktail hour will be held in our Upper Level Gallery surrounded by the glass inspirations behind the dinner.
Limited seating available. In addition to a portion of ticket proceeds going back to the NCGC, 10% of all art sales from the evening will be donated. Join us for delicious dishes, inspiring artwork, and giving back to the local arts community!
*** Eat Your ART Out! is a bi-annual charity dinner hosted by Blue Spiral 1 art gallery in downtown Asheville. Each winter and summer, the gallery hosts a dinner that pairs with and gives proceeds to a local non-profit. Blue Spiral 1 works with local chefs to prepare the dinners and each one is a "blind" menu where guests do not know what they will be served until they arrive, adding a little mystery to the event. The theme and other elements of the dinners vary depending on the non-profit and the time of year.
Blue Spiral 1 started Eat Your ART Out! in January of 2018 with the hopes of creating strong relationships with community organizations. By cross-promoting and networking, Blue Spiral 1 is able to spread awareness about these dinners to an audience that each non-profit may not have had access to prior to the dinner. This event brings a unique art focused dining and charity centric experience to Asheville.
