Studio 103 in Black Mountain, NC, Features Works by Benjamin M Betsalel, Becca Midwood, and Les Caison III

Studio 103 in Black Mountain, NC, is presenting an exhibition of recent works by Asheville artist, Benjamin M Betsalel, and a selection of works by Becca Midwood of Austin, TX, on view through Oct. 27, 2010. The gallery will also present the exhibit, women floating, featuring works by Les Caison III, on view from Oct. 28 through Nov. 27, 2010.
Betsalel's fluid approach explores the relationship between attitude and outcome. Raining down on canvases, he fearlessly pushes his medium, capturing reality through images which occur. His latest work is a further searching of "the weather or not"  series.

Becca Midwood is an artist based in Austin, TX, who started her career quite successfully in L.A. Her work has been featured on the cover of Juxtapoz Magazine and appeared in Nylon, Glue, the L.A. Times and many others. She is a painter of haunting outdoor portraits, is getting a reputation as the "female Basquiat." She has a number of serious collectors of her work, and Hollywood types such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Balthazar Getty have reportedly purchased her paintings."

The show women floating, features works by Les Caison III.  The paintings explore ways to perceive those not quite on terra firma and not all in the ethers either. These floating women are attached to 50 hearts.  
Caison III paints from the heart matters of the soul for the eyes of observers. Folks see different things in his slices-of-life oil paintings. He meshes the oil with his love for graphite line - the result is a hot mess of the creative process chock full of emotion and story. There are 1000 words in each painting. What will you see?
Caison III's work has been featured in Our State magazine. It is also collected internationally.
