“Spring Awakening” for February at Asheville Gallery of Art 

Asheville Gallery of Art’s February show, “Spring Awakening,” features diverse, visually rich works by three new members, Terrilynn Dubreuil, Lisa Sousa, and Alison Webb. The show runs February 1-29 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. A reception for the artists will be held February 7, 5-8 p.m. at the gallery, 82 Patton Avenue.

“Travel and art share a powerful partnership in my life,” says artist Terrilynn Dubreuil. “I have a passion for exploring new places and creating art that expresses strong emotions and spiritual sensitivity. I use color, light, and texture to convey a balance between Impressionism and Realism. All things are connected.” Terrilynn has taught various media and art techniques for thirty years. In 2020 she will be teaching at the Asheville Art Museum.

Lisa Natasha Sousa, with roots in both the East and West of the U.S., is influenced by the flora of these disparate regions. “I primarily work in oils, slowly building up layers of saturated color, avoiding use of solvents and mediums. My process entails focused attention, building patience, and fostering appreciation.” Lisa came to painting from working in community media and film in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Capturing the nuances and shifting light of landscapes in pastel or oils, is always an exhilarating and challenging experience,” says Alison Webb. “Much like Renaissance old masters painted a window in their compositions, I’ve framed my paintings of iconic images of familiar landscapes to evoke windows that look at the outside world.” Alison was a design forecaster and color expert for major corporations in the international textile industry.
