On display at Artsville Collective at Marquee Asheville from August 5 through October 30, 2022.
Five Artsville guest artists approach the glory of the Carolina woodlands with fresh takes on nature through their personal perspectives. Not at all what you would expect, their viewpoints reveal Appalachia through a fresh lens, inspired by fall and full of surprises for all leaf-peepers.
On view: the face jugs of Jim McDowell, “The Black Potter,” fall landscapes from watercolorist Bronwen McCormick, nature inspired basket “illusion” from woodturner Jo Miller, reimagined landscape photography from Ellen Golden and magical woodland scenes from encaustics artist, Mary Farmer.
