“Winter Blues” is January show at Asheville Gallery of Art

January 2, 2018

Asheville Gallery of Art’s January show, “Winter Blues” features the work of 23 member artists. The show runs January 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 downtown Asheville across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, January 5, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. 

What better way to brighten the cold and gray January days than by enjoying a display of great art? Each piece will be an interpretation of the artist’s winter experience. Work will range from serene, snowy landscapes to abstracts in colors calculated to warm and cheer you as you wait for spring. 

“Our artists enjoy participating in themed shows,” says member Jane Molinelli. “Every artist I know can almost instantly come up with dozens of different angles on how to interpret a given idea. You never know what will be in the show until it’s time to hang it, and that makes it as exciting to create as to see.” 

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 January.
