Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Douglas Lail & Joey Sheehan

Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present Douglas Lail/Joey Sheehan, featuring paintings by Douglas Lail and pottery by Joey Sheehan, on view in the FW Front Gallery, from Oct. 1 - 30, 2013. A reception will be held on Oct. 4, from 5-7pm.

Douglas Lail is an Asheville-born artist whose industrial influenced mixed media abstractions are distinguished by multiple layers of texture, color and organic forms. He draws inspiration from vacant buildings in Asheville’s River Arts District as well as other time-worn structures in and around town. His current abstract works are gritty, less refined reminders of the ever-present tension between man and nature.

Lail’s work combines non-traditional materials with a multilayer approach. This heuristic process involves numerous cycles of building up and stripping away. The artist is less concerned with preserving the surface, but rather discovering what lies beneath. His current collection focuses on the transformative power of air and water.

Joey Sheehan’s functional and decorative ceramics are meant to enhance any meal, table, or room. These high fire stoneware pots are perfect for everyday use or hosting a special meal. Tiles, multi-piece installations, and large hanging platters will bring color and dimension to every wall and room. These wood and gas fired clay pieces encompass a range of surface, color, and texture and take the form of the smallest mug, bowl, or plate to the largest vases, jars, and sculptures.
