The show displays through Jan. 31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays.

An artists' reception at the gallery on Friday, Jan. 6 from 5-8 p.m. offers a great opportunity to meet the artists; everyone is cordially invited to stop by.

Cheri Brackett says she began painting because, “I had the sense that I could.”

Primarily figurative, her use of bold colors, textures, and mediums creates an overtone of contemporary expressionism and has been described as “emotionally provocative and personal.”

Her work has been featured in magazines and exhibitions in Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, Asheville, and throughout the Southeast.

Sue Dolamore is active in the local arts scene and currently coordinator of the local plein air group, Asheville Urban Landscape Painters.

Robert LongWhile his business career had been highly rewarding, Robert knew at some point he would return to his first love, his lifelong interest in painting. Robert’s inspiration to paint, “comes both from a desire to capture what I see as well as to gain a mastery of color, drawing, and brush effect.

Michael Robinson, a native of Western North Carolina,  likes to draw on site with pencil, ink, watercolor and oil.As well as the paintings of the four artists, those of the other 27 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of January.
