Asheville Art Museum Presents the Art of Eugene Thomason
On view May 16 – September 13
Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Martha Severens, Sunday, May 17, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

The Asheville Art Museum is excited to present From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason, on view May 16 – September 13, 2015. From New York to Nebo is an in-depth study of the life, subjects and style of the “Ashcan artist of Appalachia,” Eugene Healan Thomason (1895–1972). A product of the industrialized New South, Thomason as a young man in the 1920s made the pilgrimage to New York to advance his art education and launch his career. Like so many other aspiring American artists, he understood that the city offered unparalleled personal and professional opportunities — prestigious schools, groundbreaking teachers and an intoxicating cosmopolitan milieu. He began his studies at the Art Students League, where he fell under the influence of the leading members of the Ashcan School, including Robert Henri, John Sloan and George Luks. In all Thomason spent a decade in the city, adopting — and eventually adapting — the Ashcan movement’s gritty realistic aesthetic into a distinctive regionalist style that used thick paint and simple subject matter.

Thomason returned to the South in the early 1930s, living first in Charlotte, NC, before settling in a small Appalachian crossroads called Nebo, located about halfway between Asheville and Hickory. For the next thirty-plus years, he mined the rural landscape’s rolling terrain and area residents for inspiration, finding an abundance of colorful imagery more evocative, and more personally resonant, than the urbanism of New York. Thomason embraced and convincingly portrayed his own region, becoming the visual spokesman for that place and its people.

There will be an Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Martha Severens on Sunday, May 17 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

This exhibition was organized by The Johnson Collection in Spartanburg, SC. The Johnson Collection is the largest repository of art by Thomason. This exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue written by art historian Martha R. Severens.

UNC Asheville’s Concerts on the Quad, once a fixture of Asheville’s summer calendar, returnfor the summer of 2015. This summer’s lineup will feature five free concerts on UNC Asheville’s Quad, spanning many musical genres, and will include shows by two local Asheville bands.

During its first 28 years, Concerts on the Quad had become a Monday-night tradition for many in greater Asheville, bringing thousands to campus before the series ended at the close of the 2010 season due to lack of continued funding.

The free concerts will be held on Monday evenings on June 15, 22, 29 and July 6, 13 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the UNC Asheville Quad.  Attendees are invited to bring chairs, blankets and picnics to enjoy along with the music.
The series will begin with Asheville-based Sirius.B, a large and eclectic ensemble that was formed in late 2006 by Xavier Ferdón, Pancho Romero Bond, and Imhotep, which takes its name from the white dwarf star, Sirius B. The band describes itself as “Absurdist Gypsy Folk Funk Punk.”eries to our community.”

2015 Concerts on the Quad Schedule

  • June 15 Sirius.B (Asheville-based Gypsy funk)
  • June 22 Ulali (featuring Pura Fé) (Native American, folk and blues influences)
  • June 29 The Malpass Brothers (country)
  • July 6     stephaniesĭd (Asheville-based “pop-noir” – jazz, rock and more)
  • July 13  Chatham County Line (bluegrass)

UNC Asheville faculty and students play active roles in area after-school programs and in-school tutoring.

 

“I’m looking forward to meeting these incredibly talented students and their families,” said Grant. “These students are the future of our community and it’s wonderful to be able to welcome them to UNC Asheville’s campus and recognize their beautiful work. I also thank all of the community partners who made this exhibition possible. It’s uplifting to see so many groups come together in support of such an important initiative.”

 

Grant will be joined by many education and community leaders, including:

 

  • David Bailey, president/CEO, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County

Asheville Art Museum :

Flourish: Selected Jewelry From the Daphne Farago Collection
on View April 18 – August 16

Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, April 18, 3:005:00 p.m.

 

Art Smith, “Half & Half” Necklace, 1948, brass, 7 x 8 x 1.25 inches. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – The Daphne Farago Collection. 2006.536.

The Asheville Art Museum is excited to present Flourish: Selected Jewelry From the Daphne Farago Collection, a dazzling exhibition on view April 18 – August 16.

Flourish showcases a selection of jewelry carefully curated over many years by the keen-eyed collector Daphne Farago and reveals the breadth of studio jewelry as the movement evolved. A self-conscious practice, studio jewelry emerged following WWII as a response to commercially available adornment and as a marriage of fine craft and art.

This exhibition is organized by the Asheville Art Museum, with special thanks to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The Museum thanks the Farago Family Foundation for their generous sponsorship of this exhibition and Jim and Julia Peterson for their support

Asheville Art Museum Presents the Art of Eugene Thomason

Asheville Art Museum :

Asheville Art Museum Presents the Art of Eugene Thomason
On view May 16 – September 13
Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Martha Severens, Sunday, May 17, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

The Asheville Art Museum is excited to present From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason, on view May 16 – September 13, 2015. From New York to Nebo is an in-depth study of the life, subjects and style of the “Ashcan artist of Appalachia,” Eugene Healan Thomason (1895–1972). A product of the industrialized New South, Thomason as a young man in the 1920s made the pilgrimage to New York to advance his art education and launch his career. Like so many other aspiring American artists, he understood that the city offered unparalleled personal and professional opportunities — prestigious schools, groundbreaking teachers and an intoxicating cosmopolitan milieu. He began his studies at the Art Students League, where he fell under the influence of the leading members of the Ashcan School, including Robert Henri, John Sloan and George Luks. In all Thomason spent a decade in the city, adopting — and eventually adapting — the Ashcan movement’s gritty realistic aesthetic into a distinctive regionalist style that used thick paint and simple subject matter.

Thomason returned to the South in the early 1930s, living first in Charlotte, NC, before settling in a small Appalachian crossroads called Nebo, located about halfway between Asheville and Hickory. For the next thirty-plus years, he mined the rural landscape’s rolling terrain and area residents for inspiration, finding an abundance of colorful imagery more evocative, and more personally resonant, than the urbanism of New York. Thomason embraced and convincingly portrayed his own region, becoming the visual spokesman for that place and its people.

There will be an Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Martha Severens on Sunday, May 17 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

This exhibition was organized by The Johnson Collection in Spartanburg, SC. The Johnson Collection is the largest repository of art by Thomason. This exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue written by art historian Martha R. Severens.
