      Asheville Gallery of Art June 2017 Show “Taking the Ordinary to Extraordinary”

      Asheville Gallery of Art’s June show features the work of Bill Cole. His colorful shapes, lines, and angles of everyday objects exemplify how the ordinary becomes extraordinary through the eyes of an artist. The show runs June 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, June 2, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by.

      Primarily a self-taught artist, Cole studied watercolor for a short period in Paris while living there in 1996. He has worked in watercolor, oil, acrylics, linocuts, and monotypes. His latest series of paintings are of buildings rendered in oil and acrylic, which he describes as, “leaning more toward minimalism than photographic realism.” In this series, he uses the lines and shapes of buildings as the format for exploring the interplay of shapes, colors, and textures.

      A native of Arden, NC, Cole began painting after retiring from the Air Force. His other interests include playing mandolin in a small band called Blackberry Jam and hiking. He lives in Waynesville with his wife, Jane, an active art quilter, and their Airedale, Ollie, an expert at catching and fetching turtles.

      Cole’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of June. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.
