Rhetorical Factory Show July 2015!

All new show scheduled, opening July 10, 2015 at Rhetorical Factory!

So excited for summer!

And here’s why…. 2 months ago I had a sit down, that’s amazing, brainstorm-y idea to collaborate with one of my favorite local artists. Today I ordered 9 yards of fabric from Spoonflower for what will become the centerpieces of my July show “Getting Off the Wall” at Rhetorical Factory in West Asheville.

This locally powered shop focuses on upcycling clothes and innovative design. Bethany Adams, the designer and captain of the ship at the shop,  had an inspiring boots on the ground meeting with me yesterday. She and I have had wonderful success in the past collaborating on projects (if you’ve ever seen me in a CLicKs shirt) and I can’t wait to see what she creates with my images! The show will also include 20 original glass art tiles which I’ve been working on for most of this year.

Come see what we’ve been dreaming up. . . second Saturday, July 10, 2015.

Tangleheart Carousel – Glass Art Tile 6″x6″ with wood stand available at upcoming show July 2015 at Rhetorical Factory in West Asheville.

Rhetorical Factory’s New Digs

The launch party for Rhetorical Factory’s first ever storefront was held last night at the Altamont Brewery to celebrate the lease signing on the space at 444 Haywood Rd. with plenty of great RF gear available for sale as well as food by Artisan Catering, music by Screamin’ J’s band.

For the uninitiated, Rhetorical Factory  is the producer for my beloved work shirts, literally my favorite clothes to wear. Whenever I’m asked about my shirts I have instructed people to seek out the studio at Riverview Station in the RAD or Rhetorical Factory on ETSY or to go to The Circle on Haywood Rd. but now I can send them straight to the store for a wider selection of prints and sizes.

 

 

Rhetorical Factory’s new flagship store has come up with lots of interesting ways to bring the community in for a browse, check out this ambitious weekly schedule.

  • Mending Mondays – Sliding-scale mending services to keep you wearing the clothes you already love! $5-$20 per item
  • Donation Tuesdays – The day to bring any and all clothing donations for Rhetorical Factory to reinterpret!
  • Kid Wednesdays – Artsy craftsy activities for the kids and kids at heart while the grown-ups shop.
  • Vinyl Thursdays – A pre-published play list for the day that will include “local celebreties and music gurus” as featured consultants for the mix.
  • Throwdown Fridays – Volunteer models, photographers & DJ’s invited to participate in a weekly photo shoot for website listings. Starting in the afternoon and spinning into a full on dance party every week. (That’s right,  every week.)

The store opening  will be in a few weeks, look for more updates and announcements and cool stuff by following RF on facebook , instagram (@rhetoricalfactory) or twitter (@rhetoricalf).

It was an excellent kick off and and a fantastic display of local support and Asheville love for a person who has worked devotedly at her craft. Big goals, require big steps. Congratulations Bethany!
