Mars Hill University’s Weizenblatt Gallery will showcase the work of four of Asheville’s pre-eminent abstract artists during January and February. Betty Clark, Grace Carol Bomer, Genie Maples, and Cindy Walton will exhibit some of their newest and most challenging work. Each artist is pursuing her own vision, all of which are very different. This is the first time these four have joined forces in a single exhibition.
Betty Clark uses paintings as a way to process events in her life and in the larger world. Grace Carol Bomer’s work is infused with a strong Christian religious ethos. Genie Maples lets her paintings develop organically through her, rather than consciously guiding them. Cindy Walton’s work combines oil painting and cold wax in beautiful and joyful expressions. Many of the artworks in this exhibition will be very large-scale, taking advantage of Weizenblatt Gallery’s expansive wall space.
Weizenblatt Gallery is open MWRF 10-4 and admission is always free.
