EXHIBIT 23: The newest airport art exhibit featuring WNC artists

(Asheville, N.C.) Exhibit 23, the newest Art in the Airport exhibit at Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is now open through January 30, 2015. The exhibit features scale in a literal way with extra-large art canvases that showcase captivating perspectives of our beautiful mountain skies to the shores of California; this exhibit is sure to stop on-lookers in their tracks to take a look at the view.

Exhibit 23 features five different artists from the western North Carolina region specializing in different mediums, ranging from oil on canvas to photography on metal. There are a variety of carefully selected pieces on display. The sheer size of each unique piece allows the audience to appreciate bold use of color and texture. The combination of pieces creates a dramatic show.

“We continue to see this program grow with each show and gain more attention from local artists,” said Tina Kinsey, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at AVL. “We love being able to display local art our passengers can enjoy while also showcasing an important piece of western North Carolina’s culture.”

Artwork can be purchased from the gallery by emailing art@flyavl.com. Artists who reside in any of the eleven counties within AVL’s primary service market may apply for acceptance into upcoming exhibits. Details about the program, including application instructions, can be found on the airport’s website at flyavl.com.
