Call to artists for Asheville airport exhibit

Written by 

Artists from Haywood and Jackson counties are eligible to submit work for the next “Art in the Airport” exhibit at the Asheville Regional Airport.

With approximately 600,000 passengers traveling through the Asheville Regional Airport each year, artwork on display receives tremendous attention, and pieces have sold from 90 percent of the previous exhibits.

Western North Carolina artists are featured in this rotating exhibit program in a dedicated gallery space as well as throughout the airport terminal.

Artists can apply with a new interactive online form, which can be found at www.flyavl.com. The show will be on display from Oct. 22 until Feb. 8. There is no fee to submit artwork, and all pieces are judged by area art professionals.

Artists are invited to submit between four and 10 pieces of artwork in any medium, bearing in mind that artwork must be suitable for all audiences.

Applications must be received by Friday, Sept. 10. To be considered for “Art in the Airport,” artists must reside in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Transylvania or Yancey counties.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
