In addition to the Asheville Downtown Gallery Association Art Walks that occur on the First Friday of April through December, Woolworth Walk also has our own art events regularly.
On the First Friday of every month, there is an Opening Reception for the Featured Artist in the F.W. Gallery. Woolworth Walk also has extended hours during the summer season, a Seconds Sale in February and occasionally hosts a private party.
For the month of October, local photographer Susan Stanton will be featured in the F. W. Gallery at Woolworth Walk.
Susan Stanton has spent years traveling and photographing the beauty and rustic charm that is known as the Southern Appalachians. A vast array of images depicting scenes along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pisgah National Forest, Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, and upstate South Carolina as well as a series of rustic interiors can be found in her online pictorial gallery. Her images have appeared in various national, state and regional magazines and publications. "As an artist, I take time to court my subjects - to discover the subtle nuances that reveal themselves only after developing a relationship with the subject. I may visit the same location numerous times at different times of day, or various seasons waiting for the lighting and mood to be perfect. I strive to record the textures… the feeling of the scene. My goal is to capture the subject's "essence" in a photograph -- to place the viewer at the scene not only visually, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Yes, there are moments of serendipity when the elements are aligned for that perfect photo, but discovering those magical, intimate details of my subjects is the quintessence of my photography." When Susan is not traversing a mountain trail, knee deep in a rushing creek, bushwhacking through the forest, judging an art competition, or guest speaking at photography events and clubs, she can be found in her 2400 square foot studio located 10 minutes from the Asheville airport where she and her husband lovingly create her works which range in size from 8x12 to over 54x85. Feel free to set up an appointment to see how your next piece is made. Standard and custom shapes and sizes, bitychs, and triptychs are all available. Susan’s work can always be viewed and ordered at Woolworth Walk in downtown Asheville who has been representing her for nearly a decade and a half.
Come meet Susan at the opening reception on First Friday, October 6th from 5-7p.m. and enjoy the corresponding Art Walk.
