Our gallery is fantastic! I want to share some pictures of the current exhibition with you, and I hope you can come in to see the gallery every so often this coming 2011. This work will be on exhibit through Jan 13th, and most you see here for several months thereafter. We will be changing our featured artist spot (the horses) in January so I want to let you know what is coming up for the Winter/Spring season.

Don Pippen will show his recent Mountain Landscapes from Jan 13th - Feb 28th. Be sure to stop in to see his show!

Betty Carlson and Bob Martin, our favorite artist couple will exhibit work from March 1 through April 13th. The show is titled "Duet" featuring fiber work, oil paintings, and sumi-e works with Betty's haiku poems.

From April 15th through May 15th we are hosting the first National Women in the Arts Fundation show at the gallery. Titled "River of Art, from NY to Asheville" the work pays homage to the women who have inspired us in our art. We are thrilled to welcome our collegues from NY and other states for this small works show!

From May 4th through the 30th selected 310 ARTists will exhibit at Gallery 86 in Waynesville, NC. The show is titled "310 ART, Contemporary works from the River Arts District". I will be curating and installing the show, and am looking forward to the opportunity to showcase some of the great talent of the teachers and artists affiliated with the gallery. A Gala Reception on May 6th coincides with the first "Art After Dark" in downtown Waynesville from 6-9pm.

In June we will have plenty of new work up for the summer Studio Stroll, and huge event held the second full weekend every June and November. The dates are June 11th and 12th from 10-6.
See you in 2011
