      Asheville Gallery of Art May 2018 Show "Chasing the Light"

      Asheville Gallery of Art’s May show, “Chasing the Light,” will feature the work of Joyce Schlapkohl who describes her style as, “painterly realism with a strong focal point.” The show runs May 1-31 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, May 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by.

      When the artist moved from Florida to her native North Carolina 19 years ago, she was a watercolor painter and teacher who was then known for her boats, seascapes, and florals. However, she switched to oils almost immediately to capture the local landscape, flowers, animals, and any subject that inspired her with strong light and shadow patterns. “While watercolor training still influences the way I see values, oils add freedom for creating texture and layering paint.”
      Her formal art training began after earning a Master’s Degree in Business. When a back injury sidelined her, she studied art at Florida Atlantic University and has continued taking workshops with nationally known teachers. “A wonderful part of painting is that you never stop learning and developing your eye for seeing regardless of the medium you use. I’m very fortunate to be able to paint full time. I’m very thankful that I love what I do and can share life’s beauty as I see it. Hopefully the local scenes will stir emotion for the viewer as they have inspired me.”
      The artist’s studio is in Waynesville, NC. You can find Joyce’s work at Asheville Gallery of Art, Seven Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville. She is a Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her website is and her e-mail is
