Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Eileen Ross

Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC, will present Colors of Jazz, featuring works by Eileen Ross, on view from Jan. 1 - 31, 2014. A reception will be held on Jan. 3, from 5-8pm.

The exhibition depicts Ross’ impressions of jazz musicians as she paints to the rhythms of her favorite jazz pieces. 

Ross is a studio artist and creativity coach working in Black Mountain, NC. She has been painting professionally since 1990, and her work has received awards in juried shows in New York, metropolitan Washington, DC, and in North Carolina. She has had several one-woman shows, including one in the Kennedy Center in Washington.

Ross’ work is lyrical and metaphorical rather than representational. Themes range from jazz musicians and circus performers to impressions of the wonders and power of nature.

Ross received her BA from NYU, and her Masters in Education from the University of Virginia. She and her husband, Bob MacDicken, are the parents of six adult children and they have 5 grandchildren.

Ross’ current work can be seen in local galleries, including the Asheville Gallery of Art and the Red House Studios and Gallery (the art center for the Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League) in Black Mountain, NC.

The Asheville Gallery of Art, the longest established fine art gallery in Asheville, NC, is celebrating 25 years of fine art. Visit the gallery to see a wide variety of styles and mediums by our 28 professional artists.
