Smart Bet extra: Liz Sullivan at American Folk Art & Framing

It’s Art Walk time again! On Friday, Aug. 5, downtown galleries open their doors and display new exhibits from 5-8 p.m. American Folk Art & Framing announces new work by painter Liz Sullivan. Says the gallery, “When the mood strikes, she sits on her couch and pulls out a piece of masonite … she looks around her house, yard or into her memories and begins to create.  Her paintings depict so much of what we all love about Western North Carolina…the misty morning, Spring scenes of blossoming cherry trees, a green pasture filled with shiny black crows.” Sullivan has been exhibiting at American Folk Art & Framing almost since the gallery’s 2001 opening. Her current work will be on display through Wednesday, Aug. 24.
