The public is invited to the 2019 celebration/ reception/opening exhibition on Friday, April 5, from 5 to 7 p.m., to be held concurrently at two downtown locations within easy walking distance of each other – at Art Mob Studios & Marketplace, 124 4th Avenue East, and at Woodlands Gallery, 419 N. Main Street in Hendersonville. Attendees can follow the colorful paint drops along the sidewalks between the two galleries. Live music, appetizers, and drinks will be provided at both locations. Artists will be offering the artwork depicted on the banners for sale to the public. Sponsors of banners in the 2018 ArtScape Banner Project will receive the banners they sponsored in last year’s exhibit during the reception. And rumor has it that James V. Langer, Chair of Greensboro College Art Dept. and Professor of Art, will be driving in to attend the Reveal Reception. Langer was one of the jurors for the 2019 ArtScape exhibit.
The Youth Banner Artist for 2019
Eleventh-grader Megan Wilkie’s piece “Radiance of an Artistic Soul” has been chosen to represent the youth category in the upcoming reveal of the 2019 ArtScape banners in downtown Hendersonville. Wilkie’s work was recently on exhibit as one of 95 pieces by young artists in the Artists of Tomorrow show curated by the Arts Council of Henderson County. A student of East High Art Teacher Robert Wallace, Wilkie will be the second young artist under 18 years old to exhibit in ArtScape.
