This very special event highlights an amazing partnership between many of Asheville’s top chefs and the Downtown Welcome Table. More than a meal, Haywood Street’s Downtown Welcome Table is a way to love and connect. It is restaurant quality fare served on abundant plates to hundreds of friends and neighbors each week – many of whom are experiencing homelessness or struggling in poverty. It is a powerful way to remind folks of their inherent worth while helping to break barriers that divide the ‘haves’ from the ‘have nots.’

Our chef partners are planning a lovely evening of food and festivities in the spacious and welcoming atmosphere of Smoky Park Supper Club, to raise funds and awareness for the Downtown Welcome Table. We will begin with appetizers and entertainment in the Boat House, Smoky Park’s versatile venue with plenty of fresh air and lovely view of the French Broad River, followed by a seated dinner with wine and crafted beers to complement and a live auction featuring spectacular offerings by generous chef partners and friends.

“Color, form and texture dancing spontaneously across the canvas awakens all the senses and charges every painting with its own spirit” is how Asheville artist Jonas Gerard sensed and created art.

The hand signed 20-inch diameter painting features Jonas’ abstract style. Floral Fantasy #42 was transformed to Bouquet #28 to create a layered textured painting full of color and life. As you look at this work of art, a flower bouquet appears filling the imagination. Like much of Jonas’ art, this piece is not aimed at intellectual perception; it is aimed at the human heart.

Jonas’ work has been exhibited all over the United States and abroad. His art is in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, World Bank, Sassoon Fashions, and many others.
