An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until December 09
For the last exhibition of the fall semester, Mars Hill University’s Weizenblatt Gallery will showcase the work of the Asheville Printmakers. Twenty-six artists will exhibit their recent works that showcase the depth and breadth of printmaking in the Asheville area. The exhibit runs November 16 through December 8.
Asheville Printmakers is an independent alliance of artists working out of the Asheville, NC area, who express themselves through the medium of print. Their works encompass a wide range of processes and content, from traditional to experimental and classic to contemporary. Their printing methods vary from relief printing such as woodblock, linocut, and wood engraving to intaglio methods such as drypoint, etching, collagraph and photogravure. Some use alternative photographic printing processes such as platinum-palladium and gum bichromate, while others employ monotype and variable editions in their work. While demonstrating the diverse range of artistic and visual styles that exist within the printmaking community in Asheville, a common thread is a hands-on involvement in making prints.

Weizenblatt Gallery is on the main floor of the Moore Fine Arts Building. Hours are 10-4 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, closed Tuesdays, weekends, and holidays. Admission, as always, is free.
