Asheville Art Museum
Mary Frank: Finding My Way Home

Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Mary Frank: Friday, September 26, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Exhibition on view September 26, 2014 – January 18, 2015

ASHEVILLE—The Asheville Art Museum is pleased to present a reception and gallery talk on Friday, September 26 at 5:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Mary Frank: Finding My Way Home. The exhibition, which runs from September 26, 2014 – January 18, 2015, presents a broad survey of Frank’s work from across her long and accomplished career. The Museum is thrilled that Mary Frank will be in the gallery to give a talk as part of the opening reception.

Over the course of her career, Mary Frank has worked in sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking and photography, suggesting that her primary loyalty is not to a particular way of working or to any medium, but rather to the power of direct expression and to the act of creation itself. All of this work demonstrates her use of the intuitions and improvisations that arise naturally during the creative process.

Mary Frank was born in London, England, in 1933 and moved to the United States at the age of seven. In the early 1950s she began carving wood sculpture, and briefly studied with Hans Hofmann and Max Beckmann. In 1969, she worked on large multi-part, figurative clay sculptures, drawings and monoprints, which remained the major focus of her work throughout the 1970s and ‘80s. In the 1990s, she turned to painting as her primary medium. Frank has been the subject of numerous solo museum and gallery exhibitions over the years, including a retrospective exhibition of sculpture, prints and drawings organized by the Neuberger Museum in Purchase, NY in 1978. Her work is in the permanent collections of several institutions including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Jewish Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of American Art, the Newark Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art and Yale University Art Gallery.

Chess Adventures – Intermediate

10:30-11:50 | Grades 3-8 | Materials fee: none
How can you queen that pawn?  How can you unleash overpowering tactics against your opponents?  How can you turn a loss into a draw?  You’ll study more advanced techniques in the opening, middle game, and endgame.  We’ll analyze games and positions as a group and in small groups to sharpen our tactics and increase our “chess visualization.”  There will also be time during class to play chess with your classmates.  This class is for those who have previously taken chess, or who have tournament experience, or who feel they are moderately proficient at the game.  (Bruce Roth, chess teacher since 1997, has taught more than 1000 students how to play chess)

Super Saturday is UNC Asheville’s six-week Saturday morning educational enrichment program for creative, highly motivated, and/or academically gifted students in grades 3-8.  We provide opportunities for students to explore new ideas and broaden their perspectives by offering a wide array of experiential, “hands-on” courses in the arts and sciences.  We encourage elementary and middle-school students to experience a university campus, engage with instructors from UNC Asheville and the local community, and develop an interest in further learning and discovery.

Every Fall and Spring, nearly four hundred students arrive on campus and create a unique hub of energy and learning.  If your child loves to learn, then Super Saturday is the place to be!

The Clyde and Nina Allen Mainstage

First produced on Broadway in 1962 starring Zero Mostel, and revived later in 1996 starring Nathan Lane, this broad and entertaining musical farce follows the path of the Roman slave, Pseudolus, on his long, convoluted and ultimately hilarious path to freedom. The original Broadway production and film was created by the legendary Stephen Sondheim and Larry Gelbart (creator of television’s long running hit, M*A*S*H). Reprising his role of the nervous Hysterium, we welcome back our own Scott Treadway.
