Mystic River of Dreams Exhibit at Art on 7th
May 18 @ 11:00 am - May 28 @ 4:00 pmFree
Art on 7th will present its May 2023 Exhibition titled “The Mystic River of Dreams.” The show runs May 18 through May 28 and will kick off with a wine and cheese reception on May 18 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
Many of the gallery artists will present work interpreting the exhibition theme, which promises a variety of imagery from the creative minds of contemporary abstract artists. Participating artists include Laurie Adams, Amy Casteel, Stephen Hackley, Courtney Hoelscher, Barbara Jones, Michelle Marra, Robin Pedrero, Christopher Peterson and Julie Wilmot. Paintings, sculptures, and copper are on the list of works planned for the exhibition.
According to gallery owner Julie Wilmot, “These pieces of art won’t be river scenes typically represented in WNC galleries. As a contemporary art gallery, it’s fun to take what might be a classic theme and give it a contemporary twist. Art on 7th has a number of landscapes, waterfalls, and mountain scenes on our walls, but none of it is representational artwork.” Identifying the gallery’s audience Wilmot says, “Art on 7th sells contemporary art that is in harmony with our clients’ mountain lifestyles. And there are plenty of people in the area who love the nature and mountains of WNC but aren’t necessarily intent on carrying a literal design and décor representation, as such, into their homes.”
