Grovewood Gallery will present Landscapes of Southern Appalachia, a solo exhibition of work by painter Shawn Krueger, from October 19 - December 31, 2019. There will be a free opening reception on Saturday, October 19 from 2-5pm that gives the public an opportunity to meet the artist. Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Shawn Krueger received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Calvin College in the late 90s. His approach to painting is rooted in the American Arts & Crafts and Tonalist traditions – both based on love and respect for nature, hand-craftsmanship, and good design. Landscapes of Southern Appalachia will feature studio works from plein air studies Krueger did on his recent travels in and around Western North Carolina.

Description:
Asheville Gallery of Art’s December show, "Big Art, Small Canvas,” features 23 member artists whose dynamic small works showcase the gallery’s diversity of styles and mediums. The show runs December 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11-4 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, December 6, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited. “A small works show is a tapestry of the incredible talent of Asheville Gallery artists,” says Jane Molinelli, a member for six years. “When you walk in and see the collection for the show, you immediately see what we are as a gallery and strive to be as artists. We are as diverse as our art, from abstract to realism, from oils to acrylic, and pastels to watercolor. Yet, we all work together in a business model that inherently fosters both creativity and community.” Asheville Gallery of Art, a collective of local artists, is in its third decade as a vibrant contributor to our city’s flourishing art scene. Co-op members are selected through a jury process. In addition to pursuing their personal artistic goals, members come together to perform the many functions necessary to run a thriving art business. “We are a multi-talented, multi-tasking group of individuals on an incredible journey together. Being Asheville’s longest-established art gallery is a testament to all past and present members' hard work and dedication,” says Molinelli. The pieces for the show, as well as the work of all 31 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of December. For further information about this show, 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.
