Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell will exhibit his “Barns and Birds” collection at MetroWines this Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, from noon to 5 p.m., each day.
“Barns are falling down on farms in WNC as tobacco disappears and farmers roll hay instead of baling it,” reads a release for the free event. “Asheville artist Cecil Bothwell works to preserve some of the remaining structures in his oil paintings. together with portraits of his favorite chickens. His ‘Barns and Birds’ collection brings together disappearing history and feathered whimsy.”
