Do it Yourself Art Show

Painting by Courtney Chappell

Asheville, NC is a relatively small city with a large percentage of the population living and working as visual artists, performers, and musicians. The number of decent contemporary galleries to talented artists is really low so artists look for other creative ways to exhibit and celebrate their art locally.
One such method is the private home show or studio sale. This Thursday evening the apartment of Erin Fussell will be temporarily transformed into a gallery where she will exhibit work by local talents that don't often show work in Asheville. 
The line up includes:
Erin Fussell, Emily Baker, Jana Busbin, Courtney Chappell, Emily Crabtree, Michael Iauch, Justin Rabuck, Melita Kyriakou, Andy Herod, Sarah Cavalieri, Katie Johnson, Ian Dennis, Shawn Peters, and  Christine Maiello 
Meghan Mulhearn will play some beautiful music around 9pm.

I heartily support these forms of alternative exhibition in Asheville. Now I just wish we could get our hands on some of those empty storefronts...
