Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics

February 10 – July 4, 2017

Portrait of a Lady screen still of Nicole Kidman in formal period costume

The artistry of great literary works, costume design, and movie making comes together in Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics, a new exhibition premiering in Biltmore House. Inspired by George Vanderbilt’s love of literature, Designed for Drama showcases more than 40 award-winning movie costumes from films based on favorite books in his collection.

Vanderbilt amassed a personal library of more than 22,000 volumes at his North Carolina home alone. He also counted leading authors of the era as personal friends, including Henry James, Paul Leicester Ford, and Edith Wharton—all of whom stayed at Biltmore House as guests. That literary connection is brought home in the exhibition with the costumes accompanied by the original books from Vanderbilt’s library that inspired the films.

The exhibition features elaborate costumes from recent films that bring literary characters to life, including Sherlock Holmes, Finding Neverland, Anna Karenina, and Pride and Prejudice. Costumes from 13 movies are dramatically staged in the magnificent rooms of Biltmore House. The fashions on display reveal the attention to detail involved in period costume design, and represent the work of costume designers at the highest level of their profession.

Entry to this exhibition is included in Biltmore admission. Save $10 per admission ticket when you buy 7 or more days in advance.

Asheville Gallery of Art March 2017 Show ‘ARTventure’ @ Asheville Gallery of Art
Mar 26 @ 11:00 am

Asheville Gallery of Art’s March show, ‘ARTventure,’ features the work of two gallery artists, Sandi Anton and Anne McLaughlin. The artists chose the show’s name to describe their respective art adventures as they continue to learn and progress through the process of making art. The show runs March 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, March 3, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by.

Sandi Anton first held a brush in her hand in May of 2009, and fell in love with a whole new world. “Suddenly, all objects and subjects became potential paintings,” she says. Having lived in the French Quarter in New Orleans for 12 years, much of what she paints and the subjects that intrigue her the most are architectural in nature, though she continues to challenge herself with other themes. “I strive to paint from a pure and creative mind, for the pleasure of those who love the movement and architecture of a vibrant city.” She claims that experimentation and practice are keys to her process. Most recently Anton says she is exploring a “less is more” concept in her paintings to leave more to the imagination of the viewer.

Anne McLaughlin, during her life-long career as a pediatric physical therapist, took on outside interests like photography and world travel. Those trips always included art museums and galleries, which led her to a study of art history. She and her husband moved to Madison County, NC, in 2002. “Being in this area rich with beauty spurred me to paint and has pushed me to continue my study of art.” Her work is both landscape and figurative. “I am happily painting and I am totally addicted to the dance of color, light, and texture, and the expression of my observations and my imagination,” says McLaughlin. “I hope my works provide the viewer with a range of feelings—mystery, peace, joy, or fun, and that the painting opens the imagination of the viewer to experience and appreciate the work.”

As well as the paintings of the two artists, those of the other 29 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of March. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Loving Families: Conversations With LGBT Families
Mar 26 @ 2:00 pm

Loving Families: Conversations With LGBT Families

Loving Families was created from interviews of local gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals in WNC and their family members. People interviewed shared the stories of how they met, came to be a family, and faced the joys and challenges that every family knows by heart. Some stories were of straight parents who raised children who were part of the LGBT community. Some stories were of gay men who created family from friendships over many decades. Some were lesbian women who learned the strength of an extended nuclear family as in-laws. Some were of gay and lesbian people who adopted or birthed children of their own. All of these stories include familiar themes, often sounding like all of our own family stories. And that’s the point.

Anne of Green Gables
Mar 26 @ 3:30 pm

​When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of “kindred spirits.” This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd-pleaser.

Sunday Evening Concerts
at The Purple Onion
Your favorite bands at your favorite place on the best evening of the week

The very definition of a special event, Sunday Evening Concerts at The Purple Onion are all about live music and the people who support it.

These Sunday concerts don’t follow any set schedule—except being on a Sunday, of course. They happen when we find a great band passing through or a regional favorite back in the area or an up-and-coming band we think our audience needs to hear. We take up the tables, put up chairs, (leaving some room for dancing), and fill The Purple Onion with music. Fans get the opportunity to hear great musicians in an intimate setting—125-seat capacity. Musicians get to play to folks who truly appreciate what they do.

Artists such as Molly O’Brian and Rich Moore, Mac Arnold and Plate Full O’ Blues, The Steel Wheels, The Honeycutters, Jonathan Byrd, Sol Driven Train, Matuto, and Nora Jane Struthers, to name a few, are all alums of our Sunday Evening stage.

Music begins promptly at 7 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m., and a special Purple Onion concert menu—small plates, salads, gourmet pizzas, and desserts—is available from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Drinks are available throughout the evening.

Her parents had always taught her to be ready. “The day will come,” her father said, “and when it does, you should be ready.” So, Jean Thompson prepared herself to do something that had to be done. Even if it was terrifying…

In a sobering one-man show, Mike Wiley takes audiences back to Montgomery, Alabama in 1961 to follow the stories of Jean Thompson and her fellow Freedom Riders as they board a Trailways bus in an attempt to desegregate public transportation. Hear accounts from the surviving participants, some of the 300 people they inspired to do the same, and celebrate the individuals of various races who came together to fight injustice.

Begin To See: The Photographers of Black Mountain College

Curated by Julie J. Thomson

While thousands of photographs were taken at Black Mountain College there has not been a detailed examination of photography at the College. Begin to See: The Photographers of Black Mountain College will be the first in-depth exhibition and catalog devoted to this topic. Photography began as a workshop at Black Mountain College in the 1930s.

In the 1940s visiting photographers gave some instruction, and starting in 1944 photography courses were offered during the College’s summer sessions. In fall 1949 photography began to be offered as part of the school’s regular curriculum, with former student Hazel-Frieda Larsen being appointed the first full-time instructor in photography. Photographic education at Black Mountain College often focused on learning to see photographically, taking photographs, and the medium’s history.

Begin to See will feature photographs by a variety of artists including Josef Albers, Hazel Larsen Archer, Josef Breitenbach, Harry Callahan, Trude Guermonprez, Robert Haas, Clemens Kalischer, Barbara Morgan, Beaumont Newhall, Nancy Newhall, Andy Oates, Aaron Siskind, Stan VanDerBeek, and Jonathan Williams.

Zola Marcus: Kinetic Origins

Curated by Alice Sebrell and Connie Bostic

Zola Marcus (1915 – 1998), long-time resident of New York and abstract painter attended the 1953 Summer Institute at Black Mountain College where he studied painting with Joe Fiore and Esteban Vicente. His early work (pre-Black Mountain) consisted of representational scenes, primarily landscapes. These early paintings displayed a remarkable feeling not just for natural beauty but also for color and, particularly, for formal clarity. It is the strength of formal composition that carried over into his abstract work, which he developed over a number of decades. Early in this development he had a one-man show at the famed Galerie Mai in Paris, and one can see the influence of his teachers, including Fernand Leger and, later, the dean of New York abstraction, Hans Hoffman. Marcus integrated a large number of the central developments of abstract painting into his work over the years, including large-scale calligraphic gestures and the employment of chance-elements, particularly drip-motifs. Many of Marcus’ later canvases display the unusual combination of fine technical precision with the appearance of improvisatory gestural spontaneity, and it is in these canvases that his distinctive aesthetic voice is perhaps most pronounced.
