Asheville Gallery of Art’s April show, “The Nature of Things,” will feature the work of new member artists, Tebbé Davis, Mark Harmon, t.e. siewert, and Kate Thayer. This will be the second show in AGA’s new gallery space at 82 Patton Avenue. The artists will present works that highlight their diverse styles as they each interpret their view of the natural world.
Kate Thayer states, “As a painter, my aim has always been that of attempting to kindle in the viewer the same kind of emotional exhilaration that I experience when I am seduced by a scene that asks to be brought to life in pastel or oils.” She says she thinks of her paintings as poems, those wordless encounters with the often stunning voices of nature whose colors and forms we rarely notice. “I want to bring to you, the viewer, what you may not have noticed in this busy world of ours: a time to stop and breathe in through our eyes the sweet and compelling voices of nature,” she states.
“The Nature of Things” runs from April 1 through 30. The public is cordially invited to meet the artists at a reception on Friday, April 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. Their work and that of the other 26 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month during regular hours. The gallery is located at 82 Patton Avenue, Capital Center, in downtown Asheville, across from Pritchard Park.
