AAAC Gallery Features Artist Andy Herod and Friends “Misprints”
There will be an opening reception in conjunction with the Downtown Asheville Art District First Friday Art Walk on July 3rd from 5-8pm.
Andy Herod is a professional, self taught painter, illustrator and print maker who has lived in Asheville for 8 years. He is fueled by coffee, the love of dogs and the promise of great adventure. Andy Herod, in collaboration with several different artists including: Anna Jensen, Julie Armbruster, Kreh Mellick, Jaime Karolich, Eleanor, Annand, Noah Prinsen, Hannah Dansie, Gus Cutty, Jason Kreckle, Chris Findley, Drew Findley, Joshua Spiceland, Gabriel Shaffer, & Gabriel Aucott, brings a masterfully curated show titled “Misprints” to the Asheville Area Arts Council’s (AAAC) Gallery. This exhibition runs through July 25th.
“Misprints” is the first show in the 2015/2016 cycle of our “Point of View”, artist-curated exhibitions at the AAAC Gallery.
Andy says that, “the role of curator is unfamiliar territory to me so I chose a simple theme that I did know something about; the exploration of print making. Screen-printing is central to my process. But being self-taught, I tend to use it in unconventional ways. So I thought it would be fun to ask some of my favorite local artists and crafts people, and some of their favorite local artists, to collaborate or to explore any print making method they wanted. My expectations were blown away!”
Artists were encouraged not to restrict themselves to a particular traditional process, and to either collaborate with someone of a totally different discipline or combine print making into a mixed media process. The result is a thoughtful, vibrant and unique blend of local art that ranges from paper jewelry and lanterns to functional furniture and fine art.
