A Painter's Journey: Watercolors by Ann Vasilik
January 26-May 19, 2013
We are delighted to support this wonderful exhibit.
RomanticAsheville.com is excited to be a sponsor of this wonderful art show! Renowned watercolor artist Ann Vasilik has lived in Asheville since 1988 and is best known for her vibrant paintings that capture the natural and architectural beauty of western North Carolina. This new "international" exhibit features familiar scenes of our mountain community as well as exciting locales from her world travels. The exhibit is open to the public during regular Baker Exhibit Center hours: 9 AM. until 5 PM daily. There is no additional fee to see the paintings.
As a farm girl growing up in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, Ann Vasilik’s far-flung travels existed only in her imagination. But her Jamaican honeymoon with her naval officer husband in 1964 began a globe-trotting lifestyle that led to one exotic locale after another. A native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Ann Vasilik has lived in Asheville since 1988. The renowned watercolor artist has worked as a painter, illustrator, and teacher in Virginia, California, Hawaii, North Carolina, and the Republic of the Philippines.
“We all have connections, first of hearth and home and then to community, state, and nation,” said Vasilik recently. “Travel provides us with the opportunity to make connections with other cultures and peoples, recognizing the underlying humanity that joins us all. Through the experiences of their language, religion, history, architecture, plants, foods, dress, and communities, we enrich ourselves and expand our horizons. We return to our homes with rich memories and images to share.”
