Asheville Gallery of Art August 2017 Show “True Colors” “True Colors” for August at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s August show features the work of Anne Bonnyman and Jane Snyder. While the artists have different artistic styles, the title reflects their shared history singing in the chorus Womansong of Asheville, and the sense of identity each finds in the lyrics to the 1986 song by Cyndi Lauper: And I see your true colors Shining through
I see your true colors And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid To let them show
Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow The show runs August 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, August 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Anne Bonnyman says the exploration of color has always been a primary motivation for her in painting, both in its application and its relationships. “My work in this show will be a combination of local landscapes and scenes from my travels in other parts of the world. These paintings reflect my fascination with color explored in a variety of contexts. What is ‘true’ about color for me is that it conveys the power of the scene before me.” Bonnyman is a retired Episcopal priest who came to Asheville 6 years ago. Jane Snyder states, “As an artist, it is not always possible to feel like one’s work truly represents the imagination. But this time, the vision and the imagery emerged through a most gratifying process of paint on paper. This current body of work is a most honest representation of my creative optimism—true colors! It’s a rare moment that I look forward to sharing in the August show.” A well-known teacher of drawing and watercolor living in Asheville, Snyder says, “I can’t decide if I love teaching art more than making art.” As well as the paintings of the two artists, those of the other 29 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of August. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Every third Saturday of the month during May through November, the resident artists at Grovewood Village open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am - 4pm on all dates. Grovewood Village is home to 12 resident artists whose workspaces were originally built to house the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore Industries - a groundbreaking enterprise in the history of American craft and textiles. Today, these resident artists create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once created. Please Note: Many of the resident artists spend time away at shows and working on commissions. If you really want to see a particular artist, please make sure their studio is going to be open before you visit.
