Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art’s March show, ‘ARTventure,’ features the work of two gallery artists, Sandi Anton and Anne McLaughlin. The artists chose the show’s name to describe their respective art adventures as they continue to learn and progress through the process of making art. The show runs March 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, March 3, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Sandi Anton first held a brush in her hand in May of 2009, and fell in love with a whole new world. “Suddenly, all objects and subjects became potential paintings,” she says. Having lived in the French Quarter in New Orleans for 12 years, much of what she paints and the subjects that intrigue her the most are architectural in nature, though she continues to challenge herself with other themes. “I strive to paint from a pure and creative mind, for the pleasure of those who love the movement and architecture of a vibrant city.” She claims that experimentation and practice are keys to her process. Most recently Anton says she is exploring a “less is more” concept in her paintings to leave more to the imagination of the viewer. Anne McLaughlin, during her life-long career as a pediatric physical therapist, took on outside interests like photography and world travel. Those trips always included art museums and galleries, which led her to a study of art history. She and her husband moved to Madison County, NC, in 2002. “Being in this area rich with beauty spurred me to paint and has pushed me to continue my study of art.” Her work is both landscape and figurative. “I am happily painting and I am totally addicted to the dance of color, light, and texture, and the expression of my observations and my imagination,” says McLaughlin. “I hope my works provide the viewer with a range of feelings—mystery, peace, joy, or fun, and that the painting opens the imagination of the viewer to experience and appreciate the work.” As well as the paintings of the two artists, those of the other 29 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of March. 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.

Asheville Gallery of Art April 2017 Show “Imageries of Life” “Imageries of Life” for April at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s April show, “Imageries of Life,” features the work of well-known figurative artist Sahar Fakhoury. The show runs April 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, April 7, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The show will present a series of the artist’s new work. “I am exploring the art of portrait with a twist. I maintain the likeness and essence of the subjects while infusing the paintings with vivid light and color. As my work evolves, I explore how much depth I can achieve by layering the figure and overlapping positions, pushing some layers in and pulling others out. I take my subjects out of their original context, which leaves room for the viewer’s interpretation and imagination as to where and why this took place.” Fakhoury says the majority of her subjects are people she encounters on the street. “Sometimes I have a certain idea in mind and I look for people to match, and, at other times, I see a person who sparks an idea for a painting.” While the artist also paints landscapes and still lifes, she continues to be fascinated by the human figure. “Figures in motion represent the instability of our life. Moving to another city or country, starting new jobs, and experiencing a sudden change in health are just some examples. Some of us put on several hats daily.” The artist has been a resident of the Asheville area for the past 27 years. She has a BFA from UNC Asheville and teaches oil painting from her studio in Asheville’s River Arts District. Fakhoury has exhibited her work in solo and group shows in several states and abroad. Her work hangs in both public and private collections around the world. Fakhoury's work, as well as the work of the other 30 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of April.

Description:
Join us for a lecture by Philadelphia-based writer and curator Sarah Archer on the iconic graphic designers behind Craft Horizons magazine. This talk will trace the rich and complex relationship between craft and graphic design, starting with a brief aesthetic overview of influential Arts and Crafts publication The Craftsman, which debuted in 1901, as well as the proliferation of how-to manuals, magazines, and kits that helped popularize the hobby craft industry during the interwar period. All of this material set the stage for Craft Horizons, which debuted modestly during World War II with a rather spare graphic identity, and, thanks to the vision of its very first in-house art director, Sydney Butchkes would become more colorful, playful, and modern throughout the 1950's and '60s. In 1956, the graphic designers Robert Brownjohn and Ivan Chermayeff designed a new logo for Craft Horizons, in the years just prior to their respective work on the opening titles for numerous James Bond movies and the NBC logo. The modern look and feel Craft Horizons in the 1950s and '60s paralleled trends in the larger advertising and magazine worlds rather than those of the hobby craft industry. Though it advertised many a hobbyist's toolkit in its back pages, and covered a wide range of craft practices editorially, the magazine was visually coded to appeal to a modern, somewhat avant garde sensibility. About Sarah Archer: Sarah Archer is a writer and independent curator based in Philadelphia. Prior to moving to Philadelphia to become Senior Curator at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, she was the Director of Greenwich House Pottery. She is a regular contributor to Hyperallergic, and her articles and reviews have appeared in The Journal of Modern Craft, Modern Magazine, Studio Potter, The Huffington Post, Slate, The New Yorker online, and The Washington Post. She has contributed essays to exhibition catalogs for the Portland Art Museum, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Museum of Arts and Design. Her essays have been included in the anthologies Shows and Tales edited by Art Jewelry Forum, and The Ceramics Reader, forthcoming from Bloomsbury Press. She has curated exhibitions at Urban Glass and Pratt Manhattan Gallery. She holds a BA from Swarthmore College, and an MA from the Bard Graduate Center. She has taught at the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, Drexel University, and the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and given talks for the American Craft Council and the American Philosophical Society. She is a member of the board of Collab, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s modern design advocacy group. Her first book, Midcentury Christmas, was published by Countryman Press and W.W. Norton in 2016. This event is held in conjunction with The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941-1979, on view at The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design January 20 - May 20, 2017. http://www.craftcreativitydesign.org/the-good-making-of-good-things/ The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941–1979 is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Elizabeth Essner, Lily Kane, and Meaghan Roddy and organized by CCCD. The CCCD Curatorial Fellowship is made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Rotasa Foundation with additional support from Gary Ferraro and Lorne Lassiter.
