“Fallscapes” at Asheville Gallery of Art
Asheville Gallery of Art’s October show, “Fallscapes,” is a multi-artist show celebrating the breathtaking beauty and grandeur of fall in our mountains. The show runs October 1-31 during gallery hours, 12-5 pm, Fridays and Saturdays. You can also make arrangements for a private tour by emailing a request to AGAprivatetours@gmail.com.
For artists who live and work in the mountains of Western North Carolina, nature is a continued source of inspiration. But only one season, fall, outdoes itself in presenting us with an astounding palette of vibrant color and rich textures. While the color of the changing leaves against a Carolina blue sky in the mountains is awesome to behold, it’s even more fun to paint.
Bee Adams and Anne Bonnyman have two distinct styles, yet, each finds unique inspiration at this time of year. “Walking in the woods in the fall is magical. The trees are lined up showing off their colors, the air is getting crisp and the leaves crunch underfoot. I try to capture the pure joy of this wonderful time,” says Bee Adams. Anne Bonnyman says, “Autumn in the mountains is dazzling. On a day when the sun lights up the trees and sparkles across the water, I can’t get to my canvas fast enough to tell the story.”
Cynthia Llanes says of her painting in the show, “Memorable places are fun to paint. This painting was a view from across the lake near our cabin during our anniversary trip to Fancy Gap, Virginia.” Olga Michelson says, “Fall is one of my favorite subjects. It inspires me. I love to capture the distant views with their complex, rich colors. Sally Lordeon enjoys getting into nature during the season. “Painting en plein air in the late fall is spectacular. The opulent colors in the landscape declare nature as the master painter.”
