The Haen Gallery in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Marci Crawford Harnden and Francis Di Fronzo

The Haen Gallery in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, Fall of the Year, featuring new works by Marci Crawford Harnden and Francis Di Fronzo, on view from Nov. 5 through Dec. 9, 2011. A reception will be held on Nov. 5, from 5:30-7:30pm.

Marci Crawford Harnden is an accomplished and celebrated artist from Dallas, TX, whose abstracted landscape work is greatly influenced by the natural world around her. Harnden’s ethereal paintings are inhabited with the suggestion of twisting tree limbs, delicate leaves, hazy skies, and pockets of light. The surfaces of each painting have a distressed and aged feel to them, made richer by deep hues of reds, purples, greens, and blues.

Francis DiFronzo, a California-based artist, exhibits widely from coast to coast from Santa Fe to Philadelphia. His narrative landscape paintings portray the physical world with a sense of nostalgia and mystery. His oil on panel work is rendered in intricate detail, creating compelling imagery from grassy hillsides to abandoned buses.

Although the paintings of Harnden and DiFronzo differ greatly from a visual standpoint, they share a notably evocative dream-like quality.

The Haen Gallery is pleased to present the thought-provoking new work of these two highly acclaimed artists as the leaves fall and the winter approaches in the mountains.
