Aah Asheville Opening November 27th
For Immediate Release
Ananda Studio Presents “Aah Asheville” by Award-Winning Local Artist Marilyn Sholin
Fletcher, NC (November 9, 2010) Catch the creative spirit of the vibrant Asheville community in this exhibition of the unique work of award-winning artist, Marilyn Sholin, which starts Saturday, November 27 from 7 – 9 pm at Ananda Studio, 22 Broadway Street, Asheville, NC with an opening reception featuring local musician Chris Rod.
Marilyn’s ground-breaking work is created through a long process in which photo references are combined on the computer and painted digitally. The work is then printed on canvas and again painted with acrylics and other mediums giving the paintings depth and layers that bring them to life. All paintings are originals that glow with color and vibrancy, capturing moods and moments—some even include whimsical collages.
Marilyn’s work has won Best of Show at the juried Grace Gallery and has also been exhibited in the Asheville Airport Gallery. She has been working on “Aah Asheville” to show her joy in living here, but will also include award-winning pieces from New Orleans, Miami Beach and other locales in her City Art collection. Marilyn has authored the book, The Art of Digital Photo Painting, published by Lark Books, and is an Expert Contributor at www.pixiq.com.
