Studio 103 Fine Art Gallery in Black Mountain, NC, Features Works by Moni Hill and Becca Midwood
Studio 103 Fine Art
Gallery in Black Mountain, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works
by Asheville based "folk artist", Moni Hill, on
view through Sept. 22, 2010 and an exhibit of works by Becca Midwood,
an artist based in Austin, TX, on view from Sept. 24 through Oct.
Moni Hill is quickly becoming one of Asheville's most sought after artists for personal collections. Her works are fun and colorful and full of joy.
Hill's palette consists mostly of cadmiums and cobalts. Things that excite her about her paintings are the hidden patches of canvas or scraps of old jeans that are primed on to all of the wood panels; the lead pencil lines which offer proof of the process; new color combinations; and unexpected object placement. In her work she seeks peace and resolution in the midst of life's contrast.
Becca Midwood started
her career quite successfully in L.A. Her work has been featured
on the cover of Juxtapoz Magazine and appeared in Nylon,
Glue, the L.A. Times and many others. She is
a painter of haunting outdoor portraits and is getting a
reputation as the "female Basquiat." She has a number
of serious collectors of her work, and Hollywood types such as Leonardo
DiCaprio and Balthazar Getty have reportedly purchased her
