There are also furnishings, which help provide an ambiance of being in a home. Each artist has a distinct style, and this show proves that an eclectic collection of paintings truly can hang together very well.” Beatrix Masotti, Managing Broker of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Asheville location notes, “Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s relationship with the arts is strongly rooted in our ties to the auction house, which has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744. This includes supporting local art and artists, which we have been doing here in Asheville since we opened our office three years ago.” The reception will take place in Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Biltmore Village location at 10 Brook St., Suite 130. All six artists will be in attendance: Angela Alexander, Bill George, Bernadette St. Pierre-George, Nan Davis, Sandy Lear, and Wendy Whitson. The exhibition will run through October.
