Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Julie Armbruster and Alli Good

Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, Moral Universe, featuring paintings by Julie Armbruster and Alli Good, on view in the FW Gallery from Sept. 1 - 29, 2010.

Prepare yourself for sweater vests, saddles, hybrid creatures and the ubiquitous blonde women inhabiting the imaginations of painters Alli Good and Julie Armbruster. The Asheville duo have teamed up again to bring you the Moral Universe.

Alli Good

Alli Good is a self-taught painter who delves deep into the recesses of her memories and observations to create narratives about relationships, unrequited feelings, and distorted insecurities. Her canvas environments are done with painstaking detail and the colors and subject matter push and pull the viewer between the lushness of the renderings and the severity of the emotional drama they depict.

Julie Armbruster

Julie Armbruster's creative vision often portrays the unbalanced relationship between humans and other animals. Painted on wood panel and surfaced with a glistening resin shield, Armbruster's characters inhabit a strange world shaded with paranoia, loneliness, humor, and hope. Her subjects are often captured at a critical moment where they have made sense of the options they have left.

Both artists use narrative, brightly colored, illustrative renderings to relate their objectives and have been able to work together on a variety of collaborative projects. For this exhibit Good and Armbruster will include a collaborative element, giving the viewers permission to come up with stories and morals they find in the exhibited work. Those seeking to interact with the artists are encouraged to leave their ideas in a suggestion box. The best contributor will be honored with an original drawing from both artists.
