Red Hot in the Blue Ridge

May 19 - September 30, 2018

This exhibition will be on view at the Asheville Art Museum On the Slope at 175 Biltmore Avenue.

The Asheville Art Museum presents Red Hot in the Blue Ridge, featuring glass from the Museum’s Collection. Glass as an art form emerged in Western North Carolina when several key artists established independent studios in the 1960s and began training students. Since then, the Museum has built its collection of exquisite glass thanks to major gifts of works by these illuminating artists and by seeking out inspiring work by the next generation of creators. This exhibition reflects both the impulse to collect glass as well as transformational contributions to the medium made here in Western North Carolina.

This exhibition is being held in conjunction with the community-wide Summer of Glass celebration.
