Asheville, NC (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
Nationally known abstract artist, Jonas Gerard, continues the development of his abstracted impressions of the majestic peaks surrounding Asheville with a new body of work. On Friday, October 3, 2008 Beyond Landscape will open at Jonas Gerard Fine Art in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. An opening reception follows on Friday, October 10th from 5 to 7 pm.
The next day, Saturday, October 11, 2008, Gerard will be painting live in his studio adjoining the Gallery at 2:00 p.m. As a token of appreciation for the continued success of his Asheville Gallery, Jonas will be donating 20 percent of the sales that occur at the opening reception to Arts for Life. This organization brings art healing programs to children with serious illnesses in North Carolina hospitals.
Going deeper in to the very soul of the land, his impressions can open the deepest senses and emotions. Without struggle Jonas transforms his powerful yet delicate abstract force through unusual compositions of trees, mountains and lakes.
His freedom of expression creates movement that pulses in every colorful brush stroke. It's a whole new approach to painting and often people get that strange feeling when they look at it...That's when it begins.
When the painting touches someone's heart beyond the visual there is a soul to soul communication. Connecting to the experience, one's eyes and imagination cannot stop at just what is seen. You will then go beyond the landscape.
Jonas Gerard Fine Art is located at 240 Clingman Avenue, Asheville, NC, in the River Arts District. Beyond Landscape exhibit runs through November 7, 2008.
