Smart Bets: Micah Mackenzie

Proving. Grounds is the new collection of images by local music/events/fashion photographer Micah Mackenzie. "I had a dream to see Asheville as the new Paris. With this collaboration, we are on our way,” says Mackenzie, who collaborated with local designers R. Brooke Priddy (Ship to Shore) and Danielle Miller (Royal Peasantry). The three artists worked on a tribute to Czech art nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, for which Priddy designed “a sweeping and sheer one-shouldered olive modal gown.” The exhibit, which opens on Thursday, May 31 at Pisgah Brewing, will feature that and other images from the local art, performance and fashion scenes. Reception at 6 p.m.; Grammer School performs at 8:30 p.m. Image by Micah Mackenzie.
