Gallery gossip

• Whodunit? Who wrote the anonymous letter to city inspectors citing code violations in River District studios? Gentrification raises its ugly head once more.

• Summer color runs rampant in the galleries just now: Ruth Ilg at Asheville Gallery of Art and Tim Lewis at Iris Photo + Digital Imaging both play with strong color and repeated patterns, while Tim Jacobs at Gallery 86 in Waynesville uses vibrant color to further abstract his landscapes.

• Bella Vista Gallery has reopened in a new space in high-traffic Biltmore Village. It should be a big change from their space in the River District.

• The show at the Arts Council’s Front Gallery is a strong one—works by Constance Humphries, Celia Gray and Kelcey Loomer.

• Plans for the River Sculpture exhibit are rolling right along. Jurors Robert Winkler, Adrienne Crowther, Harry Harrison and Mery Lynn McCorkle (independent curator from Los Angeles) selected 25 works for the site on the river, and it looks like there will be indoor works exhibited at the YMI Cultural Center.
