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. 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.
