THE ELEGANCE OF ASHEVILLE’S ARCHITECTURE
RENDERED ON NOTE CARDS
BY ARTIST MARGARET DAHM
The Friends of the North Carolina Room are pleased to provide the solution to all of your correspondence needs. Yes, you can stop postponing to write those long overdue thank you notes because you “don’t have a card”. Drop by the North Carolina Room and purchase a pack of cards featuring five architectural jewels of our fair city.
Margaret Dahm has generously donated five of her original pen and ink drawings to the North Carolina Room. The drawings are of the the Drhumor Building, St. Lawrence Basilica, the Flat Iron Building, the S&W Cafeteria and the Grove Park Inn (I refuse to refer to it as Omni Grove Park on principle). All five drawings are being framed for permanent display in the North Carolina Room as I write this post.
After moving from New Orleans in 1990, Margaret and her husband operated a small graphic design firm, allpoints, until 2005. Since then she has been happily employed at Pack Library, spending the odd weekend on printmaking or illustration projects.
Drop by the North Carolina Room to purchase a set of five cards for $10 (tax included). Better yet, purchase several sets of cards and keep them on hand to use as a last minute hostess gifts or for house guests from out-of-town. The Buncombe County Friends of the Library financed the drawings to be printed as note cards by Daniels Graphics. All proceeds benefit the North Carolina Room.
