unnatural history

The works in Unnatural History are portals backwards or forwards (or sometimes both at once) in geologic time, offering visions from before, after, and during the tenancy of humankind. Dioramas of cast resin depicting bizarre plants and animate slime suggest a post-human period wherein nature reclaims the planet. Artificial geodes made of oil paint, latex, foam, and soil transport viewers into a distant future where industrial waste has become fossil evidence of human activity. Abstract wall sculptures use motor and crude oil as raw material in the depiction of the vast, intricate industrial landscapes of the near future, while wooden mosaics made of materials salvaged from hurricane-affected cities and reconstructed glass objects found on beaches suggest a possible utopian remedy to decline, decay, and disintegration. Overall, the exhibition underscores and illustrates the many ways in which the technological processes of mass mining, manufacturing, resource extraction, and large-scale industrial agriculture have altered not only the present, but also the future history of our planet.

Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project
October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018
Asheville Art Museum On the Slope  |  175 Biltmore Avenue
Every year since 1988, technology entrepreneur and avid collector Peter Norton commissions an artist to create an original work of art that is then produced in multiples and sent to friends and select art institutions. The Asheville Art Museum is honored to be an annual recipient of the Norton Family Christmas Project since 1993. The Museum is excited to present a selection of these gifts in Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project, an exhibition on view October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018.

Committed to helping promote and launch the careers of his favorite artists, Norton selects promising individuals and introduces new talent to a community of curators, such as Sanford Biggers, Vik Muniz and Kara Walker.

Exhibition: something half-remembered

Thu. Jan. 11, 2018 – Thu. Feb. 1, 2018 | 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Something Half RememberedBeginning January 11, 2018, something half-rememberedwill be on view in The Milliken Art Gallery. In this solo exhibition, Hannah Skoonberg’s prints will be on display through February 1. Skoonberg describes her work as revolving “around ideas related to landscape. Landscapes that we create and landscapes that we inhabit. That intersection between artificial, man-made landscape and wild natural landscape becomes a place of emotional significance.” Skoonberg grew up in Georgia and the landscape of the south made a lasting impression on her work. She received her BFA in printmaking at the University of Georgia and her MFA in Printmaking at the University of Tennessee. Currently, she teaches print at the Santa Rosa Junior College in California.

The exhibition will run from January 11 – February 1, 2018. Skoonberg will present a Gallery Talk on January 11th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.

The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday – Thursday 2:00-5:00pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.

WNC Repair Cafe Offers to Fix It For Free

WNC Repair Cafe Offers to Fix It For Free
What happens if your toaster goes out on one side? Or your vacuum cleaner just doesn’t work like it once did? If you are like most people, the appliances go to the landfill and you buy something new at the big box store.  As the landfill grows by the day, and the culture of disposable manufacturing is reinforced, the WNC Repair Cafe steps boldly forward and declares: “Give us your lamps, your blenders, your rusty bike chains, yearning to be fixed.”

Repair Cafe is a free event where people with broken things come together with the people who have the know-how to fix them. The event is held in the spirit of community, education, resilience, and sustainability, not to mention the possibility of hot cider and donuts. Participants at WNC Repair Cafe believe that there is value in knowing how to repair, rather than replace your items, and will be offering repairs at no cost to any and all members of the community.

Specialists in small engines, sewing, bicycles, appliances, welding, tool sharpening, carpentry, electronics, and other areas have volunteered to lend a hand during the event. Volunteers are encouraged to share their skills, offering a unique opportunity to learn how to do it yourself the next time something breaks. While the volunteers have been recruited as specialists in certain areas, the scope of the repairs should be limited only by the imagination of the patrons; if it’s broke, they will try to fix it.
