Flood Gallery Fine Art Center in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Jim Buonaccorsi
Gallery Fine Art Center is proud to present the first Asheville,
NC, solo exhibition of artist Jim Buonaccorsi, entitled No
Fear of Content. Buonaccorsi's work, on view Aug 23
through Sept. 27, 2008, acts as salt in the open wound of complacency
and translates life's fears and meanings into a universal language.
Essentially discrediting the idea of "art for art sake."
Buonaccorsi's work is saturated with historical references,
and offers its viewers an opportunity to change history by not
Buonaccorsi's work has been included in over one hundred and thirty exhibitions, including solo exhibitions at City Gallery Chastain in Atlanta, GA, 621 Gallery in Tallahassee, FL, Fugitive Art Center in Nashville, TN, and Marshall Arts in Memphis, TN. His work has received numerous awards including the Reese Collection Annual Purchase Award at the University of Tennessee and The Martin and Doris Rosen Award at the Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition, at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. He also received a Georgia State Council for the Arts Individual Artist Grant and the M.G. Michael Award for outstanding research and two Senior Faculty research grants at the University of Georgia.
Buonaccorsi is based in Farmington, GA, with his wife and fellow artist, LeeAnn Mitchell, along with their Bull Terrier Cosimo. Buonaccorsi received his BA from Rhode Island College in 1982 and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1984. He is currently an Associate Professor with the University of Georgia.
