Artists interpret the French Broad through drawing and painting, much of it from direct observation. RiverLink invites you to a showing of this artistic inspiration and exclusive sale of the works. Featuring the work of area artists, including John Mac Kah, Robert Johnson, John Dempsey, Roger Nelson, Deborah Squier, Skip Rohde, Bryan Koontz, Forrest Hogestad, Luke Allsbrook, Alisa Lumbreras, and more! A full list of the artists, including bios, can be found at the event website.
Exclusively at October 15 opening, there will be a display of historic art and artifacts of the French Broad River.
Both the event and its title are inspired by Thomas Wolfe’s 1935 fictionalized autobiography that examines the the passing of time and the evolution of the creative process. It’s that theme, says RiverLink founder and executive director Karen Cragnolin, that closely parallels the recovery and growth of the French Broad alongside Asheville’s arts scene.
The art will hang at Sol’s Reprieve (map) and open to the public Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. — 6 p.m.
