For Immediate Dissemination Contact: Sandi Anton (734-968-3458) or [email protected] Jane Desonier Featured Artist of the Month “Skies over Appalachia” Western North Carolina landscape painter Jane Desonier is Asheville Gallery of Art featured artist for November 2014. Her show, “Skies over Appalachia,” will run November 1-30. The public is cordially invited to her reception Friday, November 7, 2014, 5-8 pm. “In a departure from my usual landscape paintings,” writes Jane, “this new show focuses on the vagaries of color and design in the mountain skies, with the terrain playing a secondary role. It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to explore new shapes and color combinations not readily available in the traditional landscape.” The gallery is located at 16 College Street in downtown Asheville, across from Pritchard Park. Regular hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 251-5796 or visit www.ashe
