Weizenblatt Gallery

About Weizenblatt Art Gallery

Established in 1991 as a gift from the estate of Dr. Sprinza Weizenblatt, Asheville physician and philanthropist, the primary function of the Weizenblatt Gallery at Mars Hill University is to educate through art. The Weizenblatt Gallery hosts exhibitions of work in a variety of styles and mediums by artists of local and national prominence.

The Weizenblatt Gallery will present a summer exhibition titled “Art & Manufacturing” from June 11 to August 10 (weekdays only, no holidays). The exhibition is a community collaboration and features The Bright Angle as a creative collaboration showcasing the relationship between art and the manufacturing industry. The Bright Angle is a designer-maker collaborative pottery studio formed in Asheville in 2016 by Nick Moen Studios. Each studio piece follows a process of sketches, 3D-prototypes, molds, firing, and refining, all using particular porcelain and glaze formulas. The Bright Angle sources wood, glass, and other materials from local craftspeople, sharing their commitment to American-made and thoughtfully sourced raw goods. An opening reception is being planned in July and details will be announced soon.  The gallery will be closed until June 11 to allow for installation.
