REMEMBERING LEW WALLACE
An exquisite collection of watercolor paintings of waterfalls in and around Transylvania County by the late Lew Wallace.

Join us in our Brevard gallery on Friday, May 27th from 5:00–8:00pm for the Opening Reception of “Remembering Lew Wallace,” an exquisite collection of watercolor paintings of waterfalls in and around Transylvania County by the late Lew Wallace.

Lew Wallace graduated from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill with a B.A. degree in Art. He grew up in North Carolina, spent most of his adult working life in Florida, and in retirement, had a home both in Florida and in the North Carolina mountains.

Most of his professional career was spent as a technical illustrator with various aerospace companies at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, including Boeing and McDonnell Douglas. He worked as a free-lance artist for several years creating architectural renderings of schools, apartment complexes, homes, industrial plants, and magazine cover art. He retired from the Boeing Company where he worked in a design visualization group. The job consisted of creating 3-D computer models of Space Station facilities and ground processing equipment from engineering drawings and field sketches in order to create a full scale virtual environment for real time simulation of payload ground operations.

Combining tools learned from years of discipline in technical art (such as perspective, light and shadow rendering, brush control) with his education and concepts in Fine Arts, Lew decided to try his hand at watercolors.

His first series of paintings consisted of European towns and castles based on his own experiences during an eighteen month tour of duty with the U.S. Army in France.

His challenge as an artist was then in developing his own watercolor techniques for painting nature, rocks and water. The paintings featured in this exhibition include the streams and waterfalls found in and around his home in the North Carolina mountains.

Lew started exhibiting his work in 2001 and soon earned signature membership in the National Watercolor Society, the Southern Watercolor Society, The Florida Watercolor Society, The North East Watercolor Society, and the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. His work has been featured in the a variety of national and international art magazines, including The Artist’s Magazine, Watercolor Artist, and Pratique Des Arts.

The Haen Gallery is proud to exhibit this outstanding body of work by an inspirational artist.

Haen_CarolinaHG_Fall2015_final_web

We are pleased once again to present our annual Lynn Boggess exhibition. “Lynn Boggess: New Work 2015″ will open for previews on Friday, October 16th, with the artist’s reception on Saturday, October 17th from 5:30-7:30pm. The artist will be in attendance for the opening.

Lynn Boggess is one of the most unique and noteworthy American landscape painters of the 21st Century. He resides in West Virginia, a state whose diverse mountains, forests, and rivers provide abundant inspiration for the artist’s plein air paintings. In place of brushes Boggess uses palette knives and trowels to thickly layer the broad sweeping strokes and exquisite fine detail that capture all the colors of the seasons in rushing rivers, snow covered hillsides, and thick forest vegetation. Boggess’ work is recognized throughout the country for its incredible three-dimensional texture, rendered solely in oils. These remarkable landscapes bridge the gap between Abstract Expressionism and Photorealism.

The Haen Gallery in Asheville is located at 52 Biltmore Avenue between the City Bakery and Chestnut. There is a parking garage at the Aloft hotel across the street, another garage just up the hill, as well as street parking. The gallery is open seven days a week, Mon, Tues & Sat 11am-6pm & Wed-Fri 10am-6pm, Sun. 12-5pm. For more info: 828-254-8577 or www.thehaengallery.com.

Lumberyard Springtide

Agusti_MyMountain_39x32webIntroducing
Pelegero Agustí
Born in Valencia and now residing in Gandia, Spanish artist Pelegero Agustí creates in the Mediterranean style of plein air painting. Eachcanvas captures the poetic subtlety of the lived experience. Agustí attempts to shape his vision in a real and intense way, painting with honesty and freshness, giving importance to the loose and expressive brushwork.

 

 

 

Kaufman_RothkoSeries_BD_2_2_webIntroducing
Dan Kaufman
A passionate artist who began his love affair for photography at an early age, Dan Kaufman lives in Savannah, Georgia.

As his life gathered steam and form, muses such as Rothko, then Wright, then Neutra began shaping Kaufman’s work. His voice, his hand, became minimalistic. Today he seeks in his work the intrinsic nature, the indispensable quality, and the abstract nature that determines its character.

 

 

 

 

EvanBoggess_Flatpack_48x58_webIntroducing new work by
Evan Boggess 
Pressure, heat, and time are conditions that shape earth’s metamorphic minerals. They are also some of the conditions that guide the development of Boggess’s abstractions. Pressure becomes the illusory depth in the pictorial space. Heat becomes a property of color, and time becomes the gradual accumulation of paint on a surface.

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 from 6 to 8pm – “small game revisited” (Brevard gallery)

From the Director: “This is such a strong show that I wanted to invite everyone for a second opportunity to see it. The imagery is so broadly symbolic and powerfully iconic–an intense, rewarding visual experience.”

The Haen Gallery at Brevard Lumberyard Arts, located in Brevard, NC will present “small game revisited,” an exhibition featuring the work of Asheville artists Colby Caldwell and Alicia Armstrong. An artists’ reception will be held on Saturday, August 24th from 6-8pm at the Brevard Haen Gallery location.

Colby Caldwell works in photography based media including film, digital capture, and the scanning process. His large scale photographic pieces are influenced by human interaction and fascination with the surrounding landscape. He explores the themes of presence and absence, nostalgia and memory, and the history of place with his detailed captures of found objects such as used shotgun shells, remnants of birds and bird wings, and old duck blind structures set in quiet and seemingly forgotten locations. His images are mounted on dibond or wood and then waxed, which gives the work a rich and painterly quality, captivating in its detail and color.

Alicia Armstrong’s paintings explore the subjective with themes of memory, nostalgia, dreams, and longings. She is fascinated by the pairing of contrasts: joy and suffering, light and dark, closeness and distance. Her background began in more traditional and photographic styles and evolved into the more abstract and symbolic. The images are contemplative, but often playful in nature, especially in her figurative pieces. She is a self-described “mark maker” and works on wood panels using graphite, oil, and charcoal. The built up layers of her work create an alluring texture and movement that further pulls the viewer into her experience.

DualNature_Pentak_Kolb

Dual Nature (Asheville)

New Work by Stephen Pentak and Kathryn Kolb.

Opening Reception for the exhibition Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. ”Dual Nature” runs through May 25, 2013.

Stephen Pentak is an accomplished and celebrated artist known for his minimalist paintings of panoramic landscapes. He is fascinated by the reflections of color and light in the leaves of trees, in rivers and streams, and in the sky as the days and seasons change.

Kathryn Kolb’s fine art photography includes color and black & white photographs of landscapes, trees and other plants from diverse natural environments. Her work explores both abstract and more representational constructions that often seem more akin to painting than photography.

Both artists are focused observers in the natural world around them and capture it eloquently in two different mediums. The Haen Gallery is pleased to present this exciting and fresh new work for the arrival of springtime in the mountains.

 

NaturalCounterpoints

Natural Counterpoints (Asheville)

New Work by Larry Gray, Francis Di Fronzo, and Clayton Santiago.

Opening Reception for the exhibition Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. “Natural Counterpoints” runs through April 20, 2013.

Larry Gray’s oil landscapes are expansive in depth and rich in color, providing magnificent atmospheric studies of time, light, and space. His paintings are windows into the natural world.

The work of Francis Di Fronzo, dynamic in intricate detail and composition, portrays the natural world with a sense of nostalgia and mystery. Di Fronzo’s beginnings as a realist are perfectly showcased in his impeccable approach to the leaves, trees, skies, waters, and boats that inhabit his canvases.

Clayton Santiago also explores the natural and spiritual worlds in his mixed media pieces. Through a process of layering epoxies, gold leaf, paint and tar, he brings to life elements of his southern heritage with depth and complexity.
