Immersion at The Asheville School

Drawing by Alli Good

It's an unlikely venue for showcasing creative talents, but The Asheville School -- which is tucked away in a scenic West Asheville neighborhood -- has been having some interesting exhibitions this year. Organized by local artist Moni Hill, last month the work of Nava Lubelski, Heather Lewis, and Bridget Conn, was featured.

This month the theme of Immersion is explored by artists Alli Good, Spencer Herr, Angela Eastman, Katie Brooks and myself. Based on what I saw while hanging work this morning, there are wonderful paintings and illustrations by Good that narrate a woman's journey into deep water and large elaborate paper cuts and stencils by Eastman that resemble the scales of a fish.

Immersion will be on display at The Walker Arts Center until May 1st.
An opening reception will be held this Thursday, March 31st 5-7pm
The Walker Arts Center is open to the public Mon-Sat 10am-5pm
