“If you are a writer in want of dynamite material, it really helps if you grew up in a white bread Midwestern suburb and were taught by nuns (“Each night I pray one Hail Mary for good grades, one for a vocation, and one for miniature golf”), and as a young adult found yourself embedded in a refugee community, trapped in the middle of the culture wars.

“Ours is a community arts center with a mission of “bringing arts to the people and people to the arts.”
The Black Mountain Center for the Arts (BMCA) was the dream of a small group of visionaries, who in 1993 organized and found a way to save the Old City Hall from destruction. They obtained the building, raised over a million dollars and succeeded in renovating the 6,000-square-foot facility into a welcoming and vital landmark. BMCA was incorporated in 1995 and opened its doors in October 2000. In 2009, the Old City Garage was also renovated and made into a clay studio behind the main building. This community arts organization has sought to create a physical place for the arts to come together and flourish in the Swannanoa Valley in Buncombe County. See our website for more information

The NC Department of Environmental Quality has extended the deadline for public feedback about North Carolina’s coal combustion residuals (CCR) rules from March 22 to April 6. The DEQ has indicated that they plan to enact their own state CCR rules in addition to the federal rules, which are at risk of being weakened by current EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. If the federal rules are weakened, we need to make sure the state CCR rules can step in to help defend our waters and our communities.
The North Carolina Arts Council launched its work in 1967 as awareness of the importance of arts to all citizens was becoming a national movement. In the ensuing nearly 50 years the arts in North Carolina have come to be valued as one of our state’s most durable and productive assets.
