"Vanishing Scenes"

Untitled, Vadim Bora

As the summer turns to fall, join us for a new exhibition opening at Vadim Bora Gallery during the October 2 Art Walk in downtown Asheville.

"Vanishing Scenes" is a series of observational works
devoted to the disappearing landscapes of the mountains.

Rusted automobiles half-buried in the earth; once-powerful tractors, now still, awaiting the scrap heap; a leaning barn, functioning only as storage of dusty unused equipment – all are remnants of forgotten abundant lives of the countryside, captured poetically in the artist's indomitable "exuberant expressionist" style.

"Vanishing Scenes"

Opening, Friday, October 2, 5-8 p.m.
