Join Asheville Museum of Science at The Collider for October’s Science Pub: Saving the American Chestnut with Dr. Jared Westbrook. The American Chestnut was once considered the finest chestnut tree in the world. These trees covered the Eastern United States landscape, numbering in the billions. Standing 100 feet tall, these trees were an important food source for a wide variety of wildlife. At the beginning of the 20th century the chestnut blight devastated the American Chestnut. By 1950 the fungus had eliminated the American Chestnut as a mature forest tree. Dr. Westbrook, and the American Chestnut Foundation team, are working hard to restore this American icon. Through their state of the art genetics research they are growing ever closer to preserving and revitalizing this American Icon! Join AMOS at The Collider for this fascinating free science lecture series. Doors to The Collider open at 5:30 pm, and the talk begins at 6:30 pm. Beverages and lite bites are provided by Asheville Brewers Alliance & Ingles Markets.

VICTORIA PINNEY STUDIO & GALLERY OPENS IN RIVERVIEW STATION Grand opening celebration with live music, food: 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25 Location: Victoria Pinney Studio & Gallery, 191 Lyman Street, Studio 101, Asheville Media Contacts: Vicky Pinney, 828-772-9014, [email protected], Constance Vlahoulis, 828-329-2918, [email protected] Websites: victoriapinney.com constancefineart.com A city develops like a painting, one layer on top of the next. The southern portion of the River Arts District received new paint this summer — literally and figuratively — as artists and businesses moved in along Riverside Drive and Old Lyman Street. Artist Victoria Pinney relocated to this corner of the district, along with businesses like Wedge Brewery, 12 Bones Smokehouse, Gallery Mugen and Cafe Yuzu. Pinney celebrates the grand opening of her gallery space in Riverview Station on Wednesday, Oct. 25, from 5-7 p.m. with a reception at 191 Lyman Street, Studio 101. Pinney is uniquely interested in the textures of history that big and small changes create. As a painter, she layers oil paints and other media to create abstract compositions that feel like artifacts. She creates a visual path through each painting, building up some layers and stripping away others to provide a sense that time has passed over the surface. Each canvas is ripe for exploration, and she invites viewers to journey through the large works. “Some viewers tell stories and visualize shapes from the colors and textures, and although I’m always interested in those responses, they’re never my intention,” Pinney said. “I’m more interested in creating a meditative surface, something inviting in which people discover emotional meaning, not necessarily a narrative.” It’s appropriate, then, that Pinney’s gallery space bears the marks of former tenants, some scrawled around the three-story-high rafters, others apparent in the industrial architecture. Since it was built in 1902, the building has been a tannery, a textile mill and a candle factory. Today, dozens of artists create paintings, ceramics, baskets and more in Riverview Station. “The neighbors are one of this building’s greatest assets,” Pinney said. “My opening on October 25 is a good time to see my work, but it’s also an opportunity to explore the historic building and this area. Come take a look and see who moved in this summer.” Pinney’s studio also houses engaging portraiture and landscapes by artist Constance Vlahoulis and furniture from Old Mountain Rd., in which the natural colors and textures of the woods glow. The artists offer small original works and giclees as well as large, original paintings. “The goal is to put art in everyone’s hands,” Vlahoulis said. ABOUT VICTORIA PINNEY Victoria Pinney moved from Chicago to Asheville nine years ago and found her place in the emerging River Arts District, first in the Wedge building, then Cotton Mill Studios and now Riverview Station. She’s part of a community of abstract painters creating large-scale works. Her lyrical compositions warm and activate space, creating an experience that’s embracing and meditative, a quiet place for thought in a loud world. At her Riverview Station studio, she sells small originals as well as large canvases. ABOUT CONSTANCE VLAHOULIS Constance Vlahoulis calls her paintings “fine folk art,” meaning they combine technique and whimsy to create an evocative composition. She paints familiar scenes augmented with joy and fun. Her painting of the River Arts District’s beloved Wedge building, for example, includes a musical railway and a sky full of local iconography. Her work is on view at Victoria Pinney Studio & Gallery and the Adler Gallery at Posana Restaurant, a space she curates. ABOUT OLD MOUNTAIN RD. Woodworker Mollie McClure is inspired by the colors and textures of nature. Her handcrafted furniture celebrates the grain and live edges of the wood she uses. She combines modern designs with ancient techniques to create furniture and picture frames that are fresh and functional. Furniture by Old Mountain Rd. is available at Victoria Pinney Studio & Gallery.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s November show, “Small Works,” features the work of 22 member artists. The show runs November 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 downtown Asheville across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, November 3, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. The show provides artists the challenge of working within limited perimeters. All pieces in the show will be 11 x 14 inches or smaller. "Placed in an 'unexpected' spot, small artwork can work magic in a room or grouping. I love the effect they have and I especially love creating them," says gallery artist Sally Lordeon. This show is a great opportunity to own work in a wide range of subject matter, media, and styles by some of the most noted local artists in Asheville. Collectors will be able to find landscapes, still lives, and small abstracts. Asheville Gallery of Art hopes art lovers will not only enjoy the show, but will use it to purchase affordable (and packable) works of art for holiday gift giving. The small works, as well as the work of all 31 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of November. 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.
