Aloft Asheville Downtown will host its first “Meet the Artist” event on Tuesday, March 8 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. in its W XYZ® bar. The event will feature local artist Angela Alexander, whose work is currently on display and available for purchase at the hotel, and fifteen percent of her sales will benefit the Asheville Humane Society. Alexander is the first artist to be featured through Aloft’s new “Meet the Artist” series, which will showcase one local artist per quarter to benefit a local charity organization.
The event is free and open to the public. Fifteen percent of all W XYZ® food and beverage sales that evening will be donated to the Asheville Humane Society as part of the 13th Annual Dine to be Kind fundraiser also taking place that evening. During the event, Alexander will raffle one of her pieces, which will be valued at $125.00. Raffle tickets will be $5.00 each, and ticket sales will also benefit the Asheville Humane Society.
