Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art’s June show features the work of Bill Cole. His colorful shapes, lines, and angles of everyday objects exemplify how the ordinary becomes extraordinary through the eyes of an artist. The show runs June 1-30 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, June 2, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Primarily a self-taught artist, Cole studied watercolor for a short period in Paris while living there in 1996. He has worked in watercolor, oil, acrylics, linocuts, and monotypes. His latest series of paintings are of buildings rendered in oil and acrylic, which he describes as, “leaning more toward minimalism than photographic realism.” In this series, he uses the lines and shapes of buildings as the format for exploring the interplay of shapes, colors, and textures. A native of Arden, NC, Cole began painting after retiring from the Air Force. His other interests include playing mandolin in a small band called Blackberry Jam and hiking. He lives in Waynesville with his wife, Jane, an active art quilter, and their Airedale, Ollie, an expert at catching and fetching turtles. Cole’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of June. 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:
Across the globe wood firers are connected by a shared experience of smoke and sweat. Although woodfiring is a relatively small discipline within the ceramic arts, the contemporary community is extremely close knit. What it lacks in numbers, it makes up for in the passion, commitment and enthusiasm of its practitioners. Fire is at the root of what it means to be human. Because woodfirers work with this ancient tool, they share a common language that transcends contemporary cultural barriers. The act of working wood and flame tap into something ancient every person shares. This exhibition brings together nineteen artists from five countries for a special exhibition to showcase the language of fire and clay. Like any language, each artist speaks with an individual accent, influenced by the region they work in and their own unique history, bringing depth and diversity to the conversation. Yet through this practice that upholds the intrinsic values of work, beauty and community, a common united voice arises. This exhibition is a platform for that global message. Exhibiting Artists: William Baker (USA) Akira Satake (USA) Josh Copus (USA) Michael Hunt (USA) Naomi Dalglish (USA) Eric Knoche (USA) Will Dickert (USA) Lindsay Oesterritter (USA) Ben Richardson (Australia) Jeff Shapiro (USA) Kazuya Ishida (Japan) Shozo Michikawa (Japan) Judith Duff (USA) Catherine White (USA) David Peters (USA) Sandy Lockwood (Australia) Robin Dupont(Canada) Hyangjong Oh (Korea) Tim Rowan (USA)
