      Affrilachian Traveling Studio exhibit, free & open to the public

      The Affrilachian Traveling Studio exhibit is designed to invite dialogue about the presence and experience of people of color in this region. The exhibition will feature African American artists and selected work which celebrates the land and/or the lived experiences of Western North Carolina and the Appalachian region.

      Marie T. Cochran, founding curator of the Affrilachian Artist Project will present the work of six artists representing a diverse array of media and styles from folk art to contemporary. Cochran is featured in the book Southern Women, produced by the editors of Garden & Gun magazine. Her artwork is included in the exhibition Appalachia NOW at the Asheville Art Museum.

      The artists are: LaKeisha Blount, Kela Hunt, Rahkie Mateen, Trey Miles, Ann Woodford and the late Victoria Casey-McDonald. The artists themselves represent a range of ages. Some are local residents and others are alumni Western Carolina University.
