Smart Bets: The Point In Between

Born in 1951, Phil Kurz lived, worked and exhibited in Kensington, Md., until his death in 2016. An eclectic visual artist, his style was influenced by Russian Expressionists and Asian artists, and he also produced a vast body of written work. To launch its second location, this one in Black Mountain, the Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center presents The Point in Between: The Art of Phil Kurz, with an opening reception Saturday, April 14, 6-9 p.m. The evening also features introductions by Oguz Erdur and Keith Frederick and folk music from Trio of Friends. Curated by Kurz’s sister, Cynthia Hatfield, the exhibition runs through June 3. Free to attend. A percentage of sales of select works will go to UNICEF’s Safe Schools Initiative and the Asheville Southside Kitchen in memory of Kurz. “To Pass the Time” courtesy of the Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center
