UNC Asheville's Blowers Gallery will display a collection of oil paintings, mixed media works and drawings by senior Emily O'Brien from December 1-17. The exhibition, "Transformation through Displacement," is based on O'Brien's experiences while studying abroad in France. Using visual imagery as a representation of spoken language, the works express how perceptions can be altered by experiences with the unfamiliar. A closing reception will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17, in the gallery, located on the ground floor of the Ramsey Library at UNC Asheville. The show is a culmination of O'Brien's work toward a bachelor’s degree at UNC Asheville.
The gallery is free and open to the public daily and most evenings. For more information, call 828.251.6336 or visit the Blowers Gallery Web site.
