Description:
Asheville Gallery of Arts February show, “For the Love of Art” features the work of three new Gallery artists and beautifully illustrates their love and passion for painting. The show runs from February 1-28 during Gallery hours 11 a.m-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. An artists’ reception at the Gallery (82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pitchard Park) on Friday, February 3, 5-8 p.m. offers a great opportunity to meet the artists. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Bee Adams’ paintings immediately strike you with her enthusiastic use of color. Bee states,”My love affair with art adds color and joy and adventure into my life.” She freely uses acrylics, watercolors, and a variety of media. Bee was active in the Denver art scene for over 40 years. After moving to Asheville more than four years ago, she expresses her passion for art in her colorful interpretations of Asheville’s unique architecture and surrounding natural landscapes. Bee also paints with the Asheville Urban Landscape Project and the WNC Plein Air Painters. Megan Richard’s watercolor/water-media paintings depict ethereal mountain vistas, expansive starlit skies, intimate woodland landscapes, and sunlit waters. Her landscapes evoke a quiet sense of time and place. Megan says, “I love the idea of viewers making an emotional connection with my paintings by tapping into their own memories and experiences.” She has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University and has studied watercolor painting in Maryland and Virginia. Sally Lordeon’s powerful yet serene collection of modern and organic art shows her love of rich textures in all that surrounds us. Sally says, “The opulent textures in all things inspire my paintings. I love when my art triggers the viewer’s own imagery and creative thought.” Sally studied fine arts in Pennsylvania at Chatham University. She moved to Asheville more than 30 years ago and, after a successful career as a technical writer and college textbook author, Sally returned to her first passion—her love of color, form, and the divine pleasure of texture. As well as the paintings of the three artists, those of the other 28 Gallery members are on display and for sale through the month of February.

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.
