Asheville's Art Scene

30th Anniversary “Celebration” at Asheville Gallery of Art

Asheville Gallery of Art’s November show, “Celebration,” features a group show of member artists’ work to mark the gallery’s 30th anniversary. The show runs Nov. 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 to 4 p.m., Sunday. The gallery, 82 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, Nov. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to join the fun.

Since Asheville Gallery of Art opened in 1988, 173 local artists have been part of AGA through the years. The 31 current members, who are co-owners of the gallery, run the business side as well as showing their work.  Each member clerks the gallery once a month and serves on at least two committees that cover diverse jobs such as monitoring finances, generating PR, maintaining the physical space, and hosting the monthly featured-artist events. 

President Jane Snyder believes the gallery not only provides a venue for local artists to show work, but has contributed to Asheville’s reputation as an art destination.

As a co-op gallery that is now celebrating 30 years of success, the Asheville Gallery of Art is proud to be a vibrant and sustaining contributor to our city’s flourishing art scene,” said Snyder.  “With 31 member/owner artists participating in day-to-day operations, we are a business model that inherently fosters both creativity and community,” she continued. “As Asheville’s longest-established art gallery, Asheville Gallery of Art will continue to be a colorful participant in the thriving local art and culture movement.”  For further information about the show, contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, or visit the gallery website at:  www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.
