Refinery Development Timeline

Waiting is the hardest part! We are currently working to get everybody into their respective spaces and give them a chance to get settled in before we can invite folks to be part of the co-op. We anticipate the opening of the co-op component to have the following timeline (but as we know, things sometimes take longer than we think).

Please stay tuned to find out more about what tools will be available for co-op members, when we will be hosting open lab hours, and other exciting details as they develop over the next few months.

The “Hello My Name Is…” Project

douglas-lailThe Asheville Area Arts Council, in partnership with Buncombe County Artist, Douglas Lail, is proud to serve as the fiscal sponsor of The “Hello My Name Is…” Project!

“Hello My Name Is…” is a not-for-profit community outreach program to break through the social stigma of addiction by focusing on the positive impact of recovery, in the lives of individuals, their families and our community. The work itself is a collection of portraits and personal recovery stories of people recovering from alcohol, drugs, mental health and other life challenges. These original portraits and stories are NOT FOR SALE, nor is there a fee to participate in the program.

A professional artist since 2007, Lail began concentrating on portraits in 2014. The idea for this project grew out of Lail’s own recovery experience and his desire to address social issues through his work.

“My mission with this project is to paint the light that I see in the mirror as well as the light I see in the people in recovery around me.” – Douglas Lail
