Join Asheville School's Celebration of Fine Arts

On Thursday, May 16, Asheville School will showcase students' work in fine arts.

The John M. Crawford Art Gallery has an exhibit of work by Asheville School students in studio art, and music students will perform in the annual Spring Concert at 5:15 p.m. in the Graham Theater.

After the concert, Director of Fine Arts Kathy Leiner will lead the Fine Arts and Letters Banquet, honoring students for excellence in fine arts for their work throughout the 2018-2019 school year.

Art Instructor Casey Arbor says this year's studio art exhibition is one to see.

"Frankly, it's an awesome show," she said. "It's exciting because the show features students' personal narratives in the form of comics; independent investigations inspired by Black Mountain College in the form of crocheted wire, woven landscapes, dance choreography, digital media and more; chairs painted in the style of famous artists; and Scholastic award-winning pieces."

The Spring Concert will feature the Asheville School Chorus, Handbell Ensemble and String Ensemble. Director of Music John Crawley says that the theme of the concert is the healing power of color, water and home. The concert will include original compositions and arrangements from films.
