Join us for "Coalescence: The Alumni and Friends Art Exhibition"

On Thursday, March 22, join Asheville School for the opening celebration of the newest exhibition in the John M. Crawford Art Gallery, "Coalescence."

"Coalescence" features the work of nine female artists who all share ties with Asheville School. With a wide range of media on display, the show celebrates varied styles, personalities and talents from Asheville School's community.

John M. Crawford Gallery Coordinator Casey Arbor handpicked each of the pieces featured in the exhibit. "I had tremendous fun curating this show," she said. "Coalescence features an intriguing mix of media and vision from a wonderful variety of artists."

"While the show features two abstract painters –local artists Jane Molinelli and Nan Davis –their style is quite different," Arbor explains. "Pippin Long, Sophia Curtis 2015, Jenny Lee 2016, and Josephine Russell 2009 exhibit artwork that speaks to a deeper level of human consciousness and connection. Our very own Janet Marshall, who works in Asheville School's business office, has both breathtakingly realistic oil paintings and intimate spiritually-inspired skyscapes. Mimi Strang and Lynn Karegeannes are both sculpture artists who are passionate about bringing relevance to objects that have been cast aside and overlooked."

"Coalescence" will hang in the gallery from Thursday, March 22, until Sunday, April 29. Join Asheville School for an opening on March 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 pm. in the Walker Arts Center's Crawford Art Gallery. Light refreshments will be provided.
