curated by Frank Meadows
The Asheville Area Arts Council will host “In Public” curated by Frank Meadows February 7th through March 7th as part of our continued “Point of View” exhibition program.”In Public” exhibits new works by young local artists across a wide range of media. Curator Frank Meadows states, “I aim to use this show as an opportunity to expose and elevate true work being done by new artists. By taking fresh ideas out of bedrooms and studios and placing them in the public eye, the hope is to create a broader awareness of up and coming artists, and the challenges that their works present. Media range from computer-based design, to mixed media drawing, photography and sculpture. Each work presents a style I find remarkably individual and fully engaged with the risk-taking necessary to sustain vitality.” “In Public” will feature the works of Zach Smith, Nick James, Dow One, soshie LAN, Charles McCurry, Bailey Ewing, Mary Claire Becker, Keegan Hooper, David Grubba, and Marissa Zarrabzadeh.
Opening Reception featuring performances by AESC CPI and Páciens Trine will be held Friday, February 7th from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold will support the Asheville Area Arts Council’s programs and mission to strengthen the vitality and visibility of the creative community, and grow Buncombe County’s arts, culture, and entertainment. Programs include supporting Kids Tixx, where the AAAC provides tickets to one child and one adult to attend various arts events in the Asheville area, and the AAAC’s Artist’s Curriculum, providing area artists with resources and opportunities to build upon their business skills.
Gallery hours Tuesday-Saturday 11:00-4:00pm.
