Skip Rohde: “What May Be Opening” Reception
- This event has passed.
August 26, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What May Be, a series of paintings by Asheville artist Skip Rohde, is a cautionary tale that looks at what might happen if current trends continue. The paintings follow a timeline from the present into a possible future. The story is not light, but it also has humor and optimism. It is a thought-provoking exhibition from someone who has personally seen what conflict can bring. Rohde was a US Navy officer for 22 years before becoming a full-time artist. His paintings have won awards and recognition in solo, juried, and curated exhibitions across the eastern half of the country. He is the courtroom artist for WLOS-TV and served as the first President of the River District Artists for three years. His Faces of Afghanistan drawings, a collection of 50 small-scale sketches done during a year in Kandahar, are in the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Rohde’s studio is in Woodfin, NC. http://www.skiprohde.com/
