Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art March 2018 Show “Black, White, and Shades of Gray” “Black, White, and Shades of Gray” for March at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s March show features the work of Jane Molinelli. Known for expressive, colorful, non-objective paintings, the artist presents new works in a limited palette. The show runs March 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, March 2, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. “The idea for the show came when a collector wanted a commission in black, white, and shades of gray,” says the artist. “I hadn’t consciously worked in that way and was excited about the challenge.” Molinelli found it to be an incredibly rich world. She mixed her own blacks, rather than grab the standard tube of carbon or ivory black. “When I grayed the colors with white, I got a whole range of beautiful shades.” As she painted, she focused on the expression and rhythm of the pieces. “It gave me time to reassess my values, in both an artistic and life sense, as I got to the core of the emotion I was hoping to convey.” The artist believes non-objective art is a spectrum of dialogue. “I start the dialogue by responding to the energy of the marks, lines, and colors I lay on the surface. I hope those who see my work start their own dialogues with the pieces and remain open to what each says during the encounter.” The artist settled in Asheville after attending Penland School of Crafts where she studied weaving. “I spent years as a craft book editor, but realized my heart belonged back with the visual arts. Once I started painting, I knew I was truly home.” Molinelli lives in Asheville with her husband, Jim LaFerla. Her work is found both in private collections and corporate settings and can be found at Asheville Gallery of Art in downtown Asheville and at 310 ART in the River Arts District. Molinelli’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of March.

We’ll cover a variety of techniques including composition, adhesives, acrylic skins, and blending and unifying images – while focusing on listening to and trusting your own intuition.
