FLOURISH: Local Artists exhibiting in the newest show at Asheville Regional Airport Art Gallery

(Asheville, N.C.) The newest show at the Asheville Regional Airport Art Gallery opens to the public today. Flourish showcases fine art from four local artists in a variety of mediums.The exhibit is on display now through June 2017.

Noticed in the exhibit is acrylic brush work from Michelle Baker, hangings by fiber artist Karen-Eve Bayne, organic metal structures by Mark Olivari, and oils on canvases by Mari Lou Solares. 

Aptly suited to its name, Flourish lends itself to the welcoming of a new season in the Appalachian Mountains, by highlighting flourishing shapes, forms, and colors. The new exhibit tells a visual story through the arrangement of pliable fibers, rigid metal structures, and strategic brush strokes.

"The art gallery is truly a way for both the passengers and public alike to experience a taste of our region," said Alexandra Bradley, Marketing and Public Relations Specialist at AVL and curator of the gallery. 

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.
