Mugen means “infinite” in Japanese, and that’s the sense of limitlessness artists Akira Satake and Barbara Zaretsky and pastry chef Cynthia Pierce bring to their collaboration Gallery Mugen, in Riverview Station in the River Arts District. With an aesthetic of simplicity and intentionality expressed in ceramics, textiles, and pastries, the three aim to bring Asheville’s art and food cultures together, creating an atmosphere that invites visitors to linger, contemplate, and indulge all of their senses.
