The first outdoor exhibit of art banners hung a year ago on light posts in downtown Hendersonville and along Historic Seventh Avenue will be replaced next month by the 2018 exhibition. The two jurors — Paul D. Wingler and Jane Bianco — have chosen the collection of new works from Henderson County artists that will be enjoyed for the next year. One more banner in the youth category is being chosen to make a total of 50 banners for the 2018 ArtScape exhibit.
Wingler, based in North Carolina, is an international photographer, artist, educator and lecturer who has been serving globally for over 25 years. Bianco has been associate curator at Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, Maine, since 2014, and has served in other positions at that museum since 2010.
The public is invited to the 2018 opening reception and exhibition on Friday, April 6, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., to be held concurrently at two galleries on either side of Main Street — Art Mob Studios & Marketplace, 124 Fourth Avenue East and Art On 4th Gallery & Studio at 125 Fourth Avenue West. The artists will be offering the artwork depicted on the banners for sale to the public. Live music, appetizers and drinks will be provided at both locations. Sponsors of banners in the 2017 ArtScape Banner Project will receive the banners they sponsored in last year’s exhibit during the reception.
The project’s objective is to create an outdoor gallery experience making Hendersonville an exciting and unique art destination. Led by Hendersonville artist Costanza Knight, the ArtScape Hendersonville committee formed as a result of a collaboration between the Art League of Henderson County, the Arts Council of Henderson County and Downtown Hendersonville Inc. ArtScape Hendersonville received funding from the Community Foundation of Henderson County and the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority.
