H2O and Other Interpretations: Works by Jean McLaughlin

April 3 – May 1, 2021

“My reconnection with printmaking began in the Penland studios after a very long hiatus. The complexity and immediacy snagged me as it had in the past, and I began to explore monotypes, monoprints, woodcuts, and lithography anew. These works were printed from woodcuts carved during the month of January 2021 while I worked in the Penland studio.” – Jean McLaughlin

Homeinstead: Works by Kristan Five

May 15 – June 19, 2021

“In theory, my work is inspired by our earth’s landscape. Globally, much of nature shares the intrinsic beauty of organic lines, textures, and color with the human contribution of synthetic elements. This visual union creates complements of color, shape, and texture that offer tremendous inspiration for my work. This work is an expression of my belief that landscape is a moment rather than a place. I use the inspiration of landscape to render the ever-changing mood of the planet which parallels our human range of emotions. While the subject of my work is influenced by the architectural landscape of the earth, my ultimate goal as a painter is essentially to capture an instance of human experience through color, shape, and texture.” – Kristan Five

Stream of Consciousness: Works by Kat Turczyn

July 3 – 31, 2021

“After almost 40 years of experience in the field of public health statistics, I began painting in oils and have taken numerous workshops from acclaimed painters around the U.S. to perfect my broad-ranged style, which continues to evolve. My art has won recognition through features in magazines, a blue ribbon, and public commissions and showings, and hangs in many private homes around the country and in several public venues. I accept limited commissions, and in my own work, am heading toward more intuitively-based personal expressions, but my intention remains–always–to imbue love, enthusiasm, and joy into each painting I create.” – Kat Turczyn

Works by Simona Rosasco

August 14 – September 11, 2021

“I gain my creativity from the beauty and diversity of the four season here in WNC, something I never really experienced while living in Florida.” – Simona Rosasco

Wonders and Realties: Works by Allison Edge

September 25 – October 23, 2021

Allison Edge creates dreamy, photograph-based paintings, lingering in nostalgia, often depicting memories of family travels, encounters with the natural world, and other documented occasions of 1970s and 80s Americana. She features animals, landscapes, and plants, as well as man-made structures that can simultaneously capture our wonder and apprehension. Her style is realism, as if through a soft-focus lens, sometimes in hard candy tints, and other times in dark shadows. The images offer an indulgence into memories and dreamscapes.

Giant Squid Designs: Works by Elissa Peragine

November 6 – December 18, 2021

“I am a photographer and graphic artist that specializes in surreal art.” – Elissa Peragine
