Each of us would benefit by having more joy and light into our lives and our world, after the last two difficult years. The December exhibit at the Asheville Gallery of Art focuses on visual images that remind us to welcome the joy and light of the season into our hearts and homes. "Joyful Light" runs from December 1-31 during gallery hours, 11am-6pm, and features works by numerous artists in a variety of mediums.
A gathering to meet the artists will be held on First Friday, December 3 from 5-8pm at the gallery at 82 Patton Avenue. Please join us during this special time of year to view the wonderful medley of offerings!
Patricia Veatch - "Merry Berry", Oil" Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I love Christmas most of all for the opportunity to be with family and share our traditions. After a very isolated zoom Christmas last year, our family is going to celebrate with gusto!"
Sally Lordeon - "Sunlight Thru the Trees", Acrylic" As the days shorten, we are reminded of nature's eternal gift of gleaming sunlight that shines through the thickest forest and brings us the joy of another beautiful day."
Raquel Egosi - "Terpsichore", Acrylic “While mostly abstract, this painting is inspired by the dynamic flow of the joy of dance, the exuberance of life, and the creativity of performance and stage lights."
Robin Altman - "Mountain Sunflower", Acrylic "This little painting is a reminder to get up each day with the intent to shine a light on the world in some way. Just as nothing stops nature, we must stand up and be counted."
