Exciting End of 2023 - wrapping up the year with art and community

December Round-Up: Celebrating our Collective of Artists, New Beginnings, and Community

We’re rounding out the year with our final reveal of our first class of Virtual Gallery Artists, a phenomenal podcast discussion about the symbioses of art and community, and celebrating our many partners. Thank you for your support and kindness this year as we have expanded our scope, and we look forward to exploring more exciting changes in 2024. Happy Holidays from all of us here at Artsville Collective!

Virtual Gallery Artist Spotlight for December

Our final report, featuring three artists of nine from our first Virtual Gallery cohort expands on the range of talent here in WNC. Joseph Pearson brings movement and culture across a breadth of mediums. Georgia Deal’s creativity in print and papermaking is stunning - plus she teaches classes! Finally, Max Cooper, an Asheville wedding photographer, stuns us with an eccentric approach to photographing the timelessness of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
