Images of Bliss around Appalachia Photo Exhibit & Reception

17 Nov 2012 - 30 Nov 2012

Photographs by Rachael Bliss taken over the last two years in Appalachia will be on display from November 3 to 30 at Grateful Steps Book Store, 159 South Lexington Avenue in Asheville. Shoppers and visitors can meet the photographer and her daughter/farmer whose farm and animals in Tennessee provided much of the inspiration for the photographic images at a reception on Saturday, November 17 from 3 to 5 PM at Grateful Steps. Refreshments such as hot apple cider and goodies from the farm will be served.

Bliss is donating a portion of her profits from her exhibition to Appalachian Voices, an award-winning, environmental non-profit committed to protecting the land, air and water of the central and southern Appalachian region.

Bliss, a mother of five and grandmother of four, has lived in Tennessee and North Carolina since 1973. She has displayed her works in Asheville at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, Rosetta's Kitchen, Old Europe Cafe, and The Hop. One of her photos was chosen as Photo of the Week by the Asheville Earth Day Facebook site in 2012 and was published in the Mountain Xpress. She uploads photos regularly to her Blissingstoyou Facebook page.
