Exhibit: Morphogenesis

Location: 310 Art Gallery (DBA River’s Edge Studio), 191 Lyman Street #310, Asheville, NC 28801

Dates of Exhibit: April 1 – 30, 2013

Reception: Saturday, April 13, 3 – 6pm



The National Association of Women Artists, Inc. will be exhibiting at the 310 Art Gallery (DBA River’s Edge Studio), 191 Lyman Street #310 in Asheville, North Carolina. The Exhibit will run April 1st– 30th. The Reception is Saturday, April 13th, 2013 from 3-6pm and is open to the public. The artists on exhibit have explored their individual interpretations of the exhibition theme: “Morphogenesis.” Although Morphogenesis can be defined as the changing of one organism into another as it matures into adulthood (i.e.: a caterpillar into a butterfly), these artists have also used this theme as a springboard to much broader interpretations such as the growth and change of civilization, society, self-awareness and more.

N.A.W.A. is a juried national organization; and, the Morphogenesis Exhibition is a Juried exhibition. Therefore, this exhibition is showcasing some very talented women artists from across the United States.

The artists exhibiting are: Elaine Alibrandi * Jill Cliffer Baratta * Carol Boram-Hays * Dorothy Cochran * Susan G. Hammond * Alice Harrison * Sarah Kobs Horvat * Janet Indick * Veronica Jaeger * Liisa Salosaari Jasinski * Aleksandra Lopatina Mears * Judith Modrak * Sharon Navage * Ksenija Lea Pecaric * Susan Phillips * Diane Price * Connie Legakis Robinson * Meredith Rosier * Istar Schwager * Kathy Stark * Amy Bright Unfried * Betty Usdan Zwickler

It’ll be very exciting to see their interpretations of Morphogenesis.

One of our N.A.W.A. members, Fleta Monaghan, is founder and director of River’s Edge Studio (where the 310 Art Gallery is located). It is a visual arts learning center for adults. This Studio and Gallery are located in the Historic River Arts District of Asheville, North Carolina. It is not only a lovely area, but it has become the Art Hub of North Carolina. And, it has earned quite a reputation throughout the state (and beyond) as a place where people come to enjoy the scenery, the history and the many art galleries within.
