Castell Photography and Blue Spiral 1 are teaming up for a one-night-only collaborative opening event on Friday, May 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. Both galleries will debut group photography exhibitions in conjunction with the Downtown Asheville Arts District’s monthly first Friday art walk.
Local artist Andy Farkas works primarily on engravings and Japanese woodblock prints known as moku hanga. The process, he says, results in “a more watercolor-y feel” — rather than rolling ink onto a carved block or plate, the woodblock itself is moistened and ink is added directly to it.
Six visual artists reflect on the bittersweet and the humorous in an engaging exhibit, up now at Blue Spiral 1.
