The April Fool Show

Clown with No Make-up

Vadim Bora Gallery presents the 6th annual April Fool Show, celebrating with a reception during the first Artwalk of the Asheville Downtown Galleries Association, Friday, April 6, 5-9 p.m.

Vadim Bora displays his wry sense of humor with this annual exhibition that introduces new pieces from his “Clowns” series, as well as other oil paintings and pen and ink posters addressing themes of folkloric absurdities, political satire, and social commentary, all created with Bora’s characteristic flourish that accents a deeper, often universal meaning.
