"Recent Works"   [Arts & Crafts]

Event Date: 06/05/2015  Event Time: 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art will feature the work of Al Junek during the month of June. His show, titled “Recent Works,” will feature Junek’s focus on the atmospheric landscape of mist, fog, or colorful skies so typical of the weather systems found in our mountain area. “I try to share the beauty of a particular place or moment in a way that will transport viewers to that spot so they can experience much the same sights or feelings that moved me to stop and take it in,” says Junek. The artist is fascinated by light and its resulting values, which are captured in many of his works. Junek attributes his affinity for painting atmospheric effects to having lived in coastal areas over the years and now living in the Blue Ridge. Most of the works in the show will be watercolor or pastel on paper along with some pencil drawings. Also included in the exhibit will be a sprinkling of experimental watercolors on canvas and birch panel. A native of Texas, Junek began painting in 1989 after formal training at
