Tracey Morgan Gallery presents an exhibition from two gallery artists. Laura Letinsky’s explorations in still life photography, both perfectly lit and meticulously composed, are rooted in a 17th Century Dutch-Flemish Vanitas tradition. Letinsky has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and her work has been the subject of five Monographs, most recently Time’s Assignation (Radius Books). Nicholas Hall, based in Brooklyn, New York, creates work that is both captivating and incredibly tactile, intending to activate seemingly customary or even mundane images into one-of-a-kind works that, while 2-Dimensional, feel as much like sculpture as they do photography. The exhibition runs through November 22nd.

$185 includes all materials. Materials provided include: silicone mold-making material, quick cast resin, a variety of paints, and jewelry findings for two necklaces. Metal casting is complicated and expensive – but it’s easy to make reproductions of your favorite found natural objects. In this class, we’ll learn to use a simple 2-part silicone mold making material and quick cast plastic resin to make your own necklace from nature! Bring your favorite bits of nature, and we’ll make molds, then cast them in lightweight plastic. Next, I’ll show you how to use reactive metallic paints to imitate the look of copper and bronze, complete with patinas! Finally, turn the casts into a beautiful wearable art jewelry. Shells, small fossils, and even pine cones work well. This process also works well for inclusions in mixed media sculpture. Note: These are press molds, meaning that the resulting form will be flat on the back. Ideal objects to cast include items that are firm, less than 3" long or wide and have a stable, non-porous surface. For example, it will be easier to cast a shell or acorn than a twig covered with flaking bark. And, it will be probably be easier to cast a twig than a leaf or bit of moss. Due to possible copyright infringement, I recommend against reproducing commercially cast items.

Asheville Gallery of Art December 2017 Show “Exploring the Human Figure” “Exploring the Human Figure” for December at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s December show features the work of Elinor Bowman, whose watercolor interpretations of the human figure capture both spontaneity and grace of movement. The show runs December 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, December 1, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. “My favorite subject is people, primarily painting live models. No matter how many times I’ve painted a model, some other aspect shows up. And new models are a completely new experience,” says the artist. The paintings in this show were all painted at an open studio at the Swannanoa Art League in Black Mountain, NC. “Watercolor, black walnut ink, and Chinese ink are currently my favorite mediums. I love the spontaneity, with results in the painting which may not have been expected or predicted.” Bowman shared how she works from life. “The paintings of clothed models were completed when the model maintained one pose (in twenty minute increments) for three hours, although I sometimes paint several paintings during the session. The nude model poses were usually short poses – five two-minute poses, two ten-minute poses, then twenty minute poses for the remainder of the session.” Before taking up painting, Bowman worked with figures of another sort. She was a consulting actuary, working with hospitals and government employers who provided pension plans for their employees. “I began painting in my 50s, and love it. I did take a figure drawing class when I was younger, but never pursued art. After careers in business, painting is so enticing.” Bowman’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of December. 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.

Curated by Akira Satake The thing that defines a tradition is the way it grows and develops over time.  No traditional art form, whether it be music, painting or ceramics, remains static and easily labeled for very long.  New influences are always coming into play, as upcoming generations learn to appreciate and revere the work of established artists but are inevitably inspired to interpret the art in new and sometimes brilliant ways. This year, we look towards a fresh generation of potters inspired by the rich traditions of our region’s ceramics.  We are very proud to feature these exceptional young artists in the exhibition, “Intro — Emerging Ceramicists in Western North Carolina,” and we look forward to seeing how their talents and vision shape the traditions of our ceramic heritage in the coming years.  Participating Artists Include: Matt Wegleitner, Tara Underwood, Micah Thanhauser, Dustin Fowler, Kristen Schoonover, The Bright Angle, Nina Kawar , Amanda Holloman – Cook, Anja Bartles, Candice Hensley, Molly Morning Glory, Samantha Oliver
