Asheville Art Museum : New on View: Robert and Ingrid Wiegand: An Electronic Medium
Apr 23 all-day


Asheville Art Museum :

New on View: Robert and Ingrid Wiegand: An Electronic Medium

Tuesday, January 7 – Sunday, April 27, 2014

Beginning Tuesday, January 7, visitors to the Asheville Art Museum can view the video works of Robert Wiegand and his first wife, Ingrid. The works were made in the 1970s when video art was first making an appearance in the art world. During this early period of video creation, the mechanical nature of the medium was a source for experimentation and inspiration. Robert and Ingrid Wiegand translated their prior training as painters into a hands-on, process-oriented exploration of this new electronic medium, allowing the aesthetic possibilities of video to take center-stage as they discovered how to manipulate sound, layer images and capture narrated performances.

This exhibition highlights several of the Wiegands’ works in which technological aspects of video are explored. Georges, Julie, Omar es el Uno, Face-Off, and Walking (interstices) are played in a loop and serve as intimate documentations of the artists’ early experimentations with new media. These works are on loan from the collection of the Robert Wiegand papers and video art at the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.

This exhibition is organized by the Asheville Art Museum and guest curated by Crystal Sanchez, Smithsonian Institution.

Asheville Art Museum : Ralph Burns Photography Exhibition
Apr 23 all-day

 

Asheville Art Museum :

Ralph Burns Photography Exhibition at Asheville Art Museum

Che #2, Havana, Cuba, 2002        Burns – Festival of Our Lady of Guadaloupe, Mexico 2003

 

On Saturday, March 29, the Asheville Art Museum is thrilled to be hosting an opening reception for local photographer Ralph Burns’s exhibition, Ralph Burns: A Persistence of Vision — Photographs 1972-2013. Burns has long been recognized as a documentary photographer whose images have captured the diverse and enigmatic nature of ritual and religion, and who has explored the subjective and often defining nature of belief, worship and culture. Like his predecessors — such as Walker Evans, Diane Arbus, Mary Ellen Mark and Robert Frank — Burns uses his cameras to probe a constantly shifting human landscape and to document the public and private aspects of culture and religion in transition, often working at the unclear and overlapping intersection of both. Throughout his career Burns has displayed a continuous and persistent interest in the motivations for worship and ritual while maintaining a compassionate and non-judgmental intimacy with his subjects. He has photographed both collective and individualized manifestations of what he sees as a seemingly irrepressible human need to ritualize loss, love and death, and to formally externalize and codify hope and the desire for transcendence.

 

The photographs in A Persistence of Vision illuminate Burns’s concerns and interactions: an Elvis fan seemingly keeping vigil over a blanketcovered, bed-ridden Elvis icon in Memphis; a penitent in Mexico carrying the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, strapped awkwardly to his back; a man staring hard into the distance while being prayed over for healing at a Marion apparition site in Georgia; a woman in agonized ecstasy struggling with being baptized in the Jordan River in Israel.

 

A native of Louisiana and a resident of Asheville since 1975, Burns has travelled great distances to photograph a specific event or religious festival. He has photographed in New Orleans, Asheville and Western North Carolina, the American South, Mexico, Cuba, Israel, England, Thailand, Nepal, Afghanistan and Europe. Burns is recognized both nationally and internationally, exhibiting his photographs in museums worldwide. In her curator’s statement for Heaven, a group exhibition that included a number of Burns’s photographs and exhibited at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in Germany and Tate Liverpool in England, the German/Israeli curator Doreet Levitte Hartten wrote: “(His) insights into the religious character … makes Burns’s work, apart from their aesthetic qualities, into documents of anthropological significance.”

This is Burns’s second solo exhibition at the Asheville Art Museum, his first being in 1990. His work has also been included in a number of group exhibitions at the Museum and is included in the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Ralph Burns: A Persistence of Vision — Photographs 1972-2013 is a broader and more extensive survey of Burns’s work over the past 40 years and, although centered on his images of religion, ritual and belief, is not limited to those subjects.

Asheville Art Museum : Social Geographies – Interpreting Space and Place
Apr 23 all-day



Asheville Art Museum :

Social Geographies – Interpreting Space and Place

January 25th – May 18th
Free with Membership or Museum admission

 

Today is the first day to view Social Geographies: Interpreting Space and Place.

The art world operates within geographic frameworks. Spatial divisions between “inside” and “outside” impact how the art world describes, identifies and validates artists featured within this exhibition. Whether deemed “outsider” (Henry Darger, Martín Ramírez, George Widener) or “self-taught” (Thornton Dial, Sr., Minnie Evans, Lonnie Holley), these artists are classified in terms that organize their art but do not adequately speak of their arts’ unique qualities and circumstances. In response to such prescriptive terms, Social Geographies asks viewers to experience artwork regarded as different, differently.

VOICE ME

 

Sound Visualization/Animation, Dimensions variable, 2013

 

“Voice Me is a sound visualization culled from a collection of recordings from skateparks across the United States, from Charleston Skatepark, SC to Tanzanite Skatepark, CA. The sounds were recorded by the skaters from the Sk8 the St8s adventure across the US.

 

Impromptu, how a second can change the outcome curated by Martha Skinner will be on display March 28th – April 25th at the Asheville Area Arts Council Gallery with the opening reception held March 28th from 6:00-9:00pm. This exhibition is part of the Asheville Area Arts Council’s on going Point of View, artists curate artists  exhibitions series, which empowers area artist to act as curators. Skinner’s Impromptu invites the viewer to pause and capture the poetic structure of time and place. Skinner explains her curatorial process of Impromptu, how a second can change the outcome:

 

“I captured a body of works from local artists that also paused and captured as we all do in some way or another, the complexities of the lives we live which transform before our eyes, repeat and cycle yet are never ever the same twice. Unique moments are presented and the work ranges from abstract explorations, to spiritual narratives, to political statements in an array of materials that surprise and rethink the way we represent our ever changing realities as we try to make sense of our world.”

 

Visual, sound, interactive, and installation works will make up the exhibition, including Lorraine Walsh’s “Voice Me” a sound visualization from a collection of skateparks across the United States, “Sound Painting” by Kima Moore, and “Koori” by Sara Baird that transforms and dissolves during the duration of the exhibition. Other featured artists include: Valeria Watson Doost, Juan Benavides, Kevin Hogan, Alice Sebrell, Jeff Kinzel, Margaret Curtis, Richard Brewster, Nava Lubelski.

The Biltmore Estate : Biltmore Blooms
Apr 23 all-day


 

The Biltmore Estate :

 

 

 Biltmore Blooms

 

March 20 through May 23, 2014, Biltmore Blooms offers a variety of activities for all ages in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Flowers take center stage with lavish orchid displays and spring bulbs blooming in magnificent gardens designed at the turn of the century by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.

 

 

Flower bloom schedule

 

Spring bloom provides constant changes in Biltmore’s gardens. The progression of blooms dictated by Mother Nature constantly unveils different flowers and new color combinations, resulting in a unique show for visitors to enjoy each week.

 

 

Orchids

 

The earliest spring days kick off the celebration with two opulent orchid displays – one in the Winter Garden inside Biltmore House, the other, a year-round orchid display in the tropical Conservatory. At Biltmore House and the Conservatory, visitors can expect to see close to 1,000 orchids in bloom.

 

 

For a limited time March 20 through April 6, guests will be given the rare opportunity to step into the Winter Garden in Biltmore House to admire the sights and fragrances of a special orchid collection. This light-filled, glass-domed garden room was once used by the Vanderbilts to relax and entertain in their home while surrounded by lush exotic plants. The room is typically roped-off to guests during tours of Biltmore House, but will be open for a limited time. “Some of these orchids will experience their peak bloom in March and early April, so we like to give our guests a chance to see these unusual and colorful blooms up-close in the same way the Vanderbilts enjoyed them – in the Winter Garden,” said Cathy Barnhardt, Biltmore’s Floral Displays Manager.

 

Outdoor gardens

 

Among the first plants to bloom across the estate will be the sunny glow of daffodils and forsythia. The spring blooming schedule continues with the widespread tulip bloom throughout the estate, while later in the season will see many other flowers such as azaleas, rhododendron, roses and vibrant annuals and perennials take hold.

The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in downtown Asheville presents the new exhibition Cynthia Homire: Vision Quest from January 24 – May 17, 2014 with a free opening reception on Friday, January 24 from 5:30 – 7:30pm.

Cynthia Homire: Vision Quest will focus on the work of poet, potter and visual artist Cynthia Homire, a Black Mountain College alumna, now in her early 80s, who has worked in a variety of media over the course of her prolific career. Homire was a student at Black Mountain College from 1950-1954, where she studied with Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, and M. C. Richards, among many others. Homire describes this seminal experience with her typical humor and grace.

The exhibition at BMCM+AC will honor Homire’s lifelong commitment to making art and share her imaginative, experimental spirit with visitors to the museum. The show will be installed at BMCM+AC from January 24-May 17, 2014, and will feature a selection of drawings, paintings, pottery and writings by Homire, spanning from her time at Black Mountain College to her present life in Taos, NM. We will produce a 48-page publication for the show, featuring reproductions of some of her drawings and a selection of Homire’s poetry.

Support for this project has been generously provided by the following: The Beattie Foundation; the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
