Editor’s note: This is part of “Four of a Kind,” a recurring Arts & Culture feature. Each month, four new artists share their takes on the local art scene. In addition to individual online posts, you can find all four features as a single spread in this week’s print edition.
Denise Markbreit is an Asheville-based printmaker and mixed-media artist.
Xpress: Is there an upcoming printmaking event happening in Asheville that you’re looking forward to seeing?
Markbreit: At Asheville Print Studio + Gallery, I am looking forward to the show Urban Horizons. This show will have six participants, and all work will reflect the mostly urban environment and spaces we as humans inhabit, build, destroy and reclaim. All the work is analog printmaking in some form, ranging from etching, screen printing, lino block and woodblock, mono print, mixed media and sculpture. The artist reception will be on Saturday, Jan. 13, 3-6 p.m. The show will be up through the end of February. Our winter gallery hours to see the exhibition are Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., or by appointment.
Outside of printmaking, what other upcoming local arts happening intrigues you?
