Demo: Traditional Oil Painting with Bryan Koontz @ Grovewood Gallery Tickets

Demo: Traditional Oil Painting with Bryan Koontz @ Grovewood Gallery | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Bryan Koontz, who was chosen to create the artwork for Biltmore’s 2018 Christmas wine labels, will be at Grovewood Gallery on February 15 and 16 from 11am-4pm demonstrating traditional oil painting techniques – working on a landscape, using photos to aid his memory, or painting en plein air (weather permitting).

Koontz is an Asheville native who can date his ancestry in Western North Carolina back to the late 1700s. His deep appreciation for the mountain culture, heritage, and scenery is evident in his artwork, which he paints in a realistic style similar to that of the mid to late 19th century American landscape painters. Employing traditional methods and archival materials, his aim is to produce works of art that will endure and be cherished for many generations.

The Gin Game @ Hart Theatre

Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey, two elderly residents at a nursing home for senior citizens, strike up an acquaintance. Neither seems to have any other friends, and they start to enjoy each other’s company.

Weller offers to teach Fonsia how to play gin rummy, and they begin playing a series of games that Fonsia always wins. Weller’s inability to win a single hand becomes increasingly frustrating to him, while Fonsia becomes increasingly confident.

Featuring Judy Dybwad and David Spivey.
