Looking For You
New & old Photography by Rimas Zailskas
Opening reception 4-7pm
Saturday, May 20th
Flood Gallery Fine Art Center with 128 new and photographs grouped into 12 Themes.
Rimas Zailskas has been a photographer for over 30 years. He is also the publisher, along with his wife Mary, of Bold Life and Carolina Home + Garden magazines.
Previous exhibits include two solo shows at the Flood Gallery in Asheville. The Living Mask (2012) was comprised of 30 pinhole portraits of people. Asimulacrum (2014) was the flip side of his previous exhibit. The show was comprised of 20 very large (3” x 4”) black and white portraits, providing an intimate and penetrating look at his subjects.
Endless Night, previously at the Upstairs Artspace, abandons portraiture to look at the world in a new way. Over 60 large black and white images are combined with text to present a false awakening - a dream about awakening from sleep while the dreamer in reality continues to sleep. It is a dream within a dream.
His current exhibit, "Looking for You," opening at the Flood Gallery May 20th is another exploration of masks showing portraits of people hiding their inter-most personas behind exotic masks from around the world.
Andy Cohen and Ash Devine will be performing original and traditional folk and country blues at the
Flood Fine Art Center, Thursday May 25th located at 2160 Hwy 70 near Swannanoa, NC. from 7pm to 9pm. This is a donation based event open to the public at no charge. Join us for a special and rare evening with the legendary Blues Guitarist and Folk Lorist, Andy Cohen and Americana folk singer Ash Devine . The two will play in collaboration and solo a variety of folk songs, old country blues, original music and lively stories.
Andy Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw Reverend Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, America’s great musical fountainhead. Although he’s done other things, a certain amount of writing and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best.
Ash Devine's music is dedicated to healing, connection and singing together. Expect to hear original americana-etherial-folk songs to activate your heart, to learn a few songs for singing and to connect at Asheville's new epicenter of art, The Flood Gallery. www.ashdevine.net
