Smart bets: Ali Douglass


There is something comfortingly familiar about Ali Douglass’ whimsical illustrations and paintings. It might be the eye-pleasing color combinations, charming characters and quirky cityscapes and scenes — or it might actually be that you’ve seen them before. Douglass has been illustrating for countless magazines and newspapers  — including Seventeen, Martha Stewart, Glamour and The New York Times — as well as for greeting cards, advertisements and books for over 15 years. These days, she lives in Asheville and teaches drawing online at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Meet the artist at the opening reception, at the Front Gallery at Woolworth Walk on Friday, Aug. 1, from 5-7 p.m. Free. Paper art by Douglass
