Asheville Art Museum :

Farm to Table: American Silver

HANK – elegant ewer with inscription

May 31 – October 5, 2014

Farm to Table: American Silver highlights different but inter-connected uses of American silver – agricultural awards and table service – as they progressed over the last 150 years. Farm to Table and associated programs will enable visitors to experience the farms and tables of the region as they reflect the stylistic changes of each era. Farm to Table brings new meaning to the “art of eating,” treating audiences to an intimate experience of handmade American silver objects celebrating our food and farms and appearing on our tables through modern times.

The exhibition will feature a variety of forms and objects representative of agricultural presentation silver and fine table settings, including silverware, hollowware and serving pieces. For example, the agricultural silver component will feature medals, trophies and engraved hollowware. Silverware for the table will span from Francis I to contemporary designs. Table settings and serving pieces will exemplify the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Craft styles.

Public Programs

The Museum has planned a series of public programs that contribute to the interpretation of the Farm to Table: American Silver exhibition. Educational programs will include a series of four cooking classes led by celebrated local chefs; a Dinner & A Movie event featuring a farm-to-table style dinner; engaging lectures by exhibition curators and silver collectors; and a special opening event aimed at attracting diverse audiences to the Museum. Check back for specific programming dates.

Asheville Art Museum : Artist Sharon Louden Brings Community to the Asheville Art Museum

Artist Sharon Louden Brings Community to the Asheville Art Museum

DSC_003113

On view July 19, 2014–Ongoing

The Asheville Art Museum is thrilled to present the second work in the Museum’s Artworks Project Space—artist Sharon Louden’s innovative installation Community. This installation is a continued conversation based on a series of work that Louden started in 2013 that traces its path through installation, animation, painting and drawing. In each genre, her gestures create an implication of dance — movement and energy — transposed against the resistance of fixed squares and rectangles of color.

Sharon M. Louden graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Yale University, School of Art. Her work has been exhibited in numerous venues, including the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, the Drawing Center, Carnegie Mellon University, Birmingham Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Louden’s work is held in major public and private collections, including the Neuberger Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, National Gallery of Art, Arkansas Arts Center, Yale University Art Gallery and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Louden has taught for 20 years since graduating from Yale in 1991. Her teaching experience includes studio and professional practice classes for students of all levels in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Louden is also the editor of a peer reviewed book published by Intellect Books and distributed by the University of Chicago Press entitled Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 Working Artists.

Community: Sharon Louden opens to the public on July 19. The exhibition is sponsored by the John and Robyn Horn Foundation. More information is available at www.ashevilleart.org.
