On the Road: Pop Up Exhibition Party

August 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join Little Jumbo as we welcome watercolor artist Natalie Ray and the pop up exhibition “On the Road” on Sunday, August 18th. This exhibition features a series of large scale watercolor and gold original paintings featuring both locally and internationally known jazz musicians, many of whom have performed here at Little Jumbo!

Performers such as The Core, Justin Ray, Jacob Rodriguez, Zack Page, Bill Bares, and many other Asheville musicians are the subjects in this series. Also featured in this series are frozen moments from international stages as Natalie travels around the world with her musician husband.

The event will be an experience like no other at Little Jumbo. Join us from 5-7pm for wine, small bites, and art!
