Elisha Mitchell's Funeral
I've been admiring Asheville painter Ian Brownlee's work for years. His narrative paintings were featured in New American Painters Magazine in 2006, and the piece above is currently in an exhibition in Chapel Hill called Local Histories. Brownlee was also deemed one of WNC's top emerging artists by WNC Magazine in 2009.
Quieter paintings of landscapes and room interiors can be found at Gallery Minerva in downtown Asheville. Check his website for more amazing work: www.ianbrownlee.us
The Local Histories exhibit hangs until April 29th
Location: 523 East Franklin Street
