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.
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?
Thanks for visiting me.
