ASHEVILLE – A new group art exhibition titled “Clouds” will open July 27 at the Adler Gallery in Posana Restaurant.
A free, public opening reception will be 6-8 p.m. July 27 at the restaurant, 1 Biltmore Ave. at Pack Square.
The theme of the show is simply stated in its name, but rather than include only artists’ visions, curator Constance Vlahoulis has invited the 18 participating local artists to team up with The Collider, the Asheville nonprofit that encourages business and science to “collide” to develop solutions for climate change. The Collider hosts an array of educational public events in their state-of-the-art facility.
When asked about her effort to connect art and science, Vlahoulis quoted Leonardo da Vinci: “Art is the queen of all sciences, communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.”
The style of the artworks included by the 16 painters will range from representational land and cityscapes to atmospheric impression, abstract and whimsical. All works will be available for purchase.
The other two artists participating work in 3D media. Andrea Kulish is known for her Pysanky eggs, an ancient Ukrainian process of hand-painting eggs using symbols of nature. Her Studio A is in Pink Dog Creative in the River Arts District.
Pamela Wright, a meteorologist for WYFF in Greenville, South Carolina, is also an Asheville jewelry designer. Her Weather Vain Jewelry will be available at the opening. Her collections using discarded umbrella parts are also available at the Omni Grove Park Inn.
