Featured artist of the month, Peggy Horne Taylor, is a colorist whose subject is light. As a student at Cape Cod School of Art, in Provincetown, Massachusetts, she fell in love with painting on location. Peggy started painting over 30 years ago and is inspired not only by the scene, but especially by the effects of color and light. She lived internationally for many years and has painted in numerous locations worldwide. She works in both oil and pastel, layering her colors to achieve a scintillating effect. Peggy is the Asheville Gallery of Art featured artist for July 2014. Her exhibit, “Worlds Apart,” depicts places, people, and things she has encountered during her travels. Her opening reception is set for July 4, 2014, 5 - 8 pm, and will include several works that celebrate Americana and the American flag. The gallery is located at 16 College Street in downtown Asheville, across from Pritchard Park. Regular hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
