A Painter’s Journey
Watercolors by Ann Vasilik
In the Baker Exhibit Center
through May 19, 2013
The North Carolina Arboretum is proud to host renowned watercolor artist Ann Vasilik. Ann, a native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has lived in Asheville, North Carolina since 1988. She received a bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Philadelphia College of Art and has worked as a painter, illustrator and teacher in Virginia, California, Hawaii, North Carolina and the Republic of the Philippines and is often best known for her vibrant paintings that capture the natural and architectural beauty of Western North Carolina. Her new exhibit will feature familiar scenes of our mountain community as well as exciting locales from her world travels.
“We all have connections, first of hearth and home and then to community, state and nation. 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. Come with me and enjoy some of the diverse and favorite scenes from my travels at home and abroad.” – Ann Vasilik
This will be Ann’s second show at The North Carolina Arboretum following her successful show that opened The Baker Exhibit Center in 2007. All works are for sale.
