On Oct. 14 from 3 to 6 p.m., downtown played host to the Asheville Area Arts Council’s annual plein air festival, City of 1,000 Easels, “a self-guided walking tour of visual artists at work in outdoor locations in downtown Asheville,” according to AAAC’s website. “Visual artists working in any media are invited to set up a miniature outdoor studio to create work live in front of an audience of passers-by.” (Pictured: Sienna Ferguson)
