Asheville Gallery of Art’s October show features the work of Cathyann Burgess, whose vibrant approach to subject matter mirrors nature’s fall exuberance. The show runs October 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 artist on Friday, October 6, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Burgess declares she “loves to paint.” Whether using soft pastels en plein air or oil and cold wax, she energetically addresses wood, canvas, and paper with similar enthusiasm. While this show is about her view of places imagined and visited, she has also garnered recognition for her still life and portraiture. Most recently, she has been awarded for her landscapes in pastel. “The ordinary, quiet moments of daily living are often filled with common observances that I find quite lovely,” says the artist. “I want the viewer to breathe a sigh of joy or lose themselves in the environments I create when viewing my work or living with it. This often violent world needs more of the beautiful and this is what I offer. I want to share with you the things that delight me.” For this show, the viewer will be immersed in the images she happily produces in her home studio in Hendersonville, NC. Burgess also teaches workshops in oil or pastel. She exhibits her work at Asheville Gallery of Art and at Up Against the Wall Gallery, in Kingsport, TN. Her work hangs in private and corporate collections throughout the country. Burgess’ work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of October. 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.

Description:
The 310 ARTists are always telling tales whenever they paint, draw, create sculpture and other fabulous things. It is a visual way of communicating personal stories, the signs of the times, our cultural history and reflections of current events. For the months of Oct, Nov and Dec 2017 we will finish this eventful year with our own collection of stories in visual form. The artists visually tell their own stories in words and pictures for a fall show that looks back on the past and casts a gaze to the future. Some art is introspective, and some renderings of scenes and real events. On exhibit are watercolors of historical trains, provocative abstracts, works in encaustic in many methods, new sculptural pieces and much more. A reception is opened to the public Saturday, Oct 7th from 3:30 – 6:00 with refreshments, new works on exhibit and a free community interactive painting project sponsored by 310 ART and Cheap Joe’s Art Supply. You can join in by painting your own stories on a canvas provided. This is a fun activity for all ages and families are welcomed to come. Participate in an “art scavenger hunt” for a chance to win prizes. A drawing will be held at 5:45 for those who completed the hunt.
