Smart bets: Wood & Wine

BET Wood and Wine Dervish

Grovewood Gallery recently added an exhibition space dedicated to fine wood art. And how better to celebrate than with a toast? That’s the idea behind Wood & Wine, a showcase and celebration featuring contemporary sculptural and functional work. Included in the show is French artist Alain Mailland, “who specializes in green wood hollowing techniques,” according to a press release, and Nashville-based artist John Jordan, “whose turned and carved vessels are featured in the permanent collections of more than 25 museums.” Wood & Wine — an open house intended to introduce the Asheville community to the gallery’s fine wood art collection — takes place Thursday, Aug. 7, from noon-6 p.m. Pictured: “The Dervish” by Mailland
