“In Public,” curated by Frank Meadows, opens Feb. 7 at Asheville Area Arts Council

The Asheville Area Arts Council Gallery will host In Public curated by Frank Meadows February 7th through March 8th as part of our continued “Point of View” exhibition program. In Public exhibits new works by young local artists across a wide range of media. Curator Frank Meadows states, “I aim to use this show as an opportunity to expose and elevate true work being done by new artists. By taking fresh ideas out of bedrooms and studios and placing them in the public eye, the hope is to create a broader awareness of up and coming artists, and the challenges that their works present. Media range from computer-based design, to mixed media drawing, photography and sculpture. Each work presents a style I find remarkably individual and fully engaged with the risk-taking necessary to sustain vitality.” In Public will feature the works of Zach Smith, Nick James, Dow One, soshie LAN, Charles McCurry, Bailey Ewing, Mary Claire Becker, Keegan Hooper, David Grubba, and Marissa Zarrabzadeh.

Join us for the opening reception featuring performances by AESC CPI and Páciens Trine held Friday, February 7th from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
