Stray, the Regal Wonder Dog, wants you to know that the Weaverville Art Safari is just two months from now. She thinks people come by to see her so she hopes you’ll visit on Saturday and Sunday, October 24-25 2015.
Speaking in third person, LeoTheColorman has been inspired and in the studio working on two new– actually THREE — series of works created just for the October art tour. The names of the series will be revealed later (hint: one has to do with tattoos).
Go ahead and put the dates on your calendar now and plan to see wild new paper sculpture creations and of course Stray, the Regal Wonder Dog, as she holds court that weekend.
All in all, a great opportunity to see “Art in the Heart of the Blue Ridge.”
The Asheville Airport Art Gallery has just installed eight of my paper sculptures. This is a repeat opportunity for me to exhibit in this small, but significant venue. Gallerists talk about foot traffic being an important measure of a successful gallery. This gallery is placed so that everyone walks past to board flights or to get their luggage on the way out. As I read it, that’s 100%.
Since my moniker is leothecolorman, the work seemed to fit their theme, “Rhythm of Color.” These three pieces are typical of my bashful use of color. Here they are.
Twisted Horn Bundle
Feather Color Wheel
The Big Liar
The Big Liar comes from a series of flies done for the Museum of Idaho.
I wrote a Haiku for each of them.
The catch of my life!
It grows larger by the hour.
My friends avoid me.
Git thee to the airport. Fly somewhere then come back for your belongings…You will walk past the gallery. Go meet flights just for the fun of it and wander into the show. Have you ever been to the Asheville Airport Art Gallery? What are your thoughts about art in the airport?
