Reception for Relics is tonight

We’re grateful to have Ursula Gullow writing about art for Xpress. The talented blogger, teacher and painter has a new show, called Relics, up at N.C. Stage. There’s a reception tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and the show will be up until May 5 (N.C. Stage is open during regular business hours).

“I decided to paint some of the objects of my habitat as a type of self-portrait,” writes Gullow on her blog. “The mundane, the mass-produced, the imported, the functional and the ubiquitous.”

Expect charming oil paintings rendered with the color, movement and vibrancy for which Gullow is known. We highly recommend you check it out.


Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.
