An ongoing exhibit at the Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League that opened in late October, “Extraordinary Finds and Times” showcases new artworks from 61 member artists. The gallery committee put special safety protocols in place for the show, making it more accessible for artists to enter.

“Like many other [League] artists, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to exhibit once again after a long six months,” photographer David O. Hearne tells Asheville Made. Hearne is a landscape and nature photographer influenced by the painters of the 19th-century Hudson River School and late-19th and early-20th-century photographers. “In all cases,” notes Hearne, “the quality of light is always foremost.”

The sale features holiday-friendly items, ornaments, small affordable works of art, and many other pieces. Due to COVID-19, the show and sale is also available online. 

“I always look forward to our shows and seeing other artists’ work,” adds painter Sheila Wollam. “My association with the Swannanoa Art League at The Red House is a great source of joy for me.”

Current gallery hours are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 11am-4pm, with limited occupancy and masks required.
