Three of my Alleys & Ruins pieces, including Cotton Belt below, will be included in a group show, Art After Dark: Artists and Artificial Lighting, at the Asheville Art Museum from June 29-October 27, 2013.
The exhibit will feature six artists who create images in the dark hours of the night utilizing artificial light or who use the night as inspiration for creating dream-like images.
The opening reception will be June 29 from 5-8pm. The event is open to the public, so drop by if you are in the area! Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend. The museum is located at 2 South Pack Square, Asheville, NC
"Art After Dark"
For much of history art was created by the light of day. Artists’ studios were designed with large skylights facing north to take advantage of the most constant source of light. In the late 19th century gas light, and later the electric light, allowed enough brightness for artists to work successfully with an artificial light source. The exhibit features the images of six artists – three photographers and three painters – whose works were either created during the darkest hours of the day utilizing artificial light, or use the night as inspiration for creating dream-like images. Artists in this exhibition include Steve Fitch, Yvonne Jacquette, Xavier Nuez, Matthew Pillsbury, Robert Yarber and John Zurier
