Black Mountain Artist at the Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC

Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC, Artist-of-the-Month for Apr. will be Black Mountain artist Harriet Herrick on view Apr. 1 through Apr. 29.

Herrick's exhibit will feature cut paper sculptures and combinations of cut paper and watercolor painting. Her wide variety of subject matter includes area churches, stylized crosses, plants, animals, and landscapes. Three of her pieces have won awards this past year in Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League exhibits.

Herrick uses an-acto knife to cut intricate designs in paper. The designs are drawn in reverse on the back side of the paper. The largest area is cut first. In each succeeding layer the design gets progressively smaller. Next the shapes are cut out of thin foam core board leaving a margin of about 1/4 inch. Each layer must be supported by foam. When stacked together the finished art has a strikingly complex three dimensional effect.
