‘Surreal Appalachia’ celebrated at Waynesville gallery

Two local artists who use unconventional materials will be featured from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 5 at Gallery 262 in downtown Waynesville.

“Surreal Appalachia: The Works of Michelle Walker & Bobbie Polizzi” explores the work of Walker, who blends oils with real life butterfly and moth wings to create mystical flying creatures and cold stark landscapes, and Polizzi, who takes the discarded and combines them to create powerful sculptural works. 

Both artists will be on hand at the open event to discuss their work. Wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
