Asheville Gallery of Art’s April show features the work of Johnnie Stanfield whose landscapes and still lifes capture both the vibrancy and heritage of living in the North Carolina mountains. The show runs April 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 Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, April 6, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Stanfield says her show will showcase work that depicts a collection of items that bring back memories of an event, an occasion, or a period in our lives. “Anything vintage interests me, including typewriters, musical instruments, radios, a collec-tion of old cars, and antique fishing lures. I love the detail and the personality of these items and the way they have aged gracefully over the years,” she said. The exhibit will include several pencil renderings of her favorite items including old Western and English riding boots and an old Western saddle. Her large painting, “The Memory Makers,” depicts vehicles from the 1940s and ’50s. Johnnie returned to the art scene after a serious injury to her right hand. "The first year was extremely tough. I was unable to move any of my fingers and I had no feeling in my hand. It took me almost five years to get back to my past potential with about 93 per cent usage of my right hand,” she said. The artist has won vari-ous awards for her paintings and drawings over the years, including recently taking second place in the Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League’s 2016 juried show for her equestrian watercolor portrait, “Troubadour.” Her work can be seen at The Asheville Gallery of Art. Stanfield’s work, as well as the paintings 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.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jeremy G. Richman, Ph.D. “Preventing Violence, Building Compassion” Dr. Richman has extensive research experience in neuro-science. He is committed to preventing violence and building compassion through brain health research, community education, and engagement. In this presentation we will discuss what is known in regard to risk factors for engaging in violent behavior and protective factors for building connection and compassion. As we seek to better learn the neuro-biological and environmental factors associated with violence and compassion, a deeper understanding can be established. We can apply these insights to educate the everyday citizen (students, parents, teachers, health care providers, and law enforcement) about how to identify the signs and symptoms of someone troubled or in crisis, how to responsibly advocate for those at risk of violence to themselves or others, and most importantly, how to foster kind, healthy, and compassionate individuals and communities.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s May show, “Chasing the Light,” will feature the work of Joyce Schlapkohl who describes her style as, “painterly realism with a strong focal point.” The show runs May 1-31 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 Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, May 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. When the artist moved from Florida to her native North Carolina 19 years ago, she was a watercolor painter and teacher who was then known for her boats, seascapes, and florals. However, she switched to oils almost immediately to capture the local landscape, flowers, animals, and any subject that inspired her with strong light and shadow patterns. “While watercolor training still influences the way I see values, oils add freedom for creating texture and layering paint.” Her formal art training began after earning a Master’s Degree in Business. When a back injury sidelined her, she studied art at Florida Atlantic University and has continued taking workshops with nationally known teachers. “A wonderful part of painting is that you never stop learning and developing your eye for seeing regardless of the medium you use. I’m very fortunate to be able to paint full time. I’m very thankful that I love what I do and can share life’s beauty as I see it. Hopefully the local scenes will stir emotion for the viewer as they have inspired me.” The artist’s studio is in Waynesville, NC. You can find Joyce’s work at Asheville Gallery of Art, Seven Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville. She is a Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her website is www.joycepaints.com and her e-mail is [email protected] Schlapkohl’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of May. 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.

Organic Growers School’s new series of Homestead Tours showcases how home-growers in Western North Carolina (WNC) are transforming their land into thriving, productive, and resilient ecosystems. Our goal is to inspire you to embark on your own homesteading journey by providing an opportunity to tour a working homestead. Tours occur once per month, each time at a different homestead, and they are always followed by an optional group potluck! Lorri Bura is a co-owner of the USDA Organic certified farm, Green Heart Gardens, a member of the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farming Coalition, and an educator and host to WWOOF interns and homeless veterans. With 20 acres in total, Lorri is venturing into woodland farming and continuously expanding the number of crops she grows each season. The majority of work at Green Heart Gardens is done by hand, and Lorri sources most of her fertilizer, mulch, and water on the property. Her farm “apothecary” is a center for healing and education, and her medicinal herbs can be found in stores around Asheville.
