OLD WORK, NEW DAY
The fine art photography of Paul M. Jackson is currently on display at Studio Chavarria located on Walnut St. in downtown Asheville. Jackson writes: The show speaks of using existing resources to produce or create something new, reverting to labor over luxury to save energy and produce less waste, & choosing collaboration over competition.These are not my ideas nor are they new but I believe they are worth addressing now, creating an environment to discuss how to incorporate them in our everyday lives.
An artist reception will be held Saturday March 21 7-10pm
A new little gallery called Nook is celebrating their opening tonight (Friday March 20) on the top floor of The Phil Mechanic Building in the River District. My painting studio is located on the same floor as Nook, and I've been watching the owners prepare the space over the last few weeks. They've hung new lights, added molding to the walls, sanded down plaster bumps and repainted everything with a fresh coat of white, so it's all looking very pro. The debut show "Three" is a collaborative exhibition of contemporary photographic works by Paul McDermott, David McDermott and Michael McDermott.
