In addition to the five annual Art Walks that occur on the First Friday of April, June, August, October and December, Woolworth Walk also has other 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 June, local artist Rob O’Sheeran will be showcased in the F. W. Gallery at Woolworth Walk.
Born in Williamsburg, Virginia, Rob has been an artist since childhood. He received a formal art education at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Richmond, Va. West Asheville is now his home where he resides with his wife, daughter, and son. Rob has both a contemporary and eclectic approach to his art. Bold, vibrant colors and recurring designs are the foundations of his paintings, which are often created on found objects and architectural salvage. Vintage glass windows are principally used as canvas, which illuminate the richness of chosen hues, the depth of textures, and the motion of passing brush strokes. The breadth of his subject matter extends from the abstract and imaginary to landscapes and even the simplicity of everyday objects. Rob loves and finds inspiration from the ocean and a life spent by the water has infused his art with scenes from the sea. Rob takes pleasure in experimenting with pattern and his paintings exhibit movement from abstract forms to fish scales and feathers. His upbeat paintings and “tongue-in-cheek” touch of humor invite the discerning viewer to enjoy favorite images and colors in an original presentation. Rob’s art comes in all sizes and shapes from corporate size paintings to small personal ones for the home and work space.
Come meet Rob at the opening reception on First Friday, June 2nd from 5-7p.m. and enjoy the corresponding Art Walk.
