The ArtScape Hendersonville Banners committee invites the public to celebrate the ArtScape banners recently installed in downtown Hendersonville, NC, at an art reception in two locations:  Art Mob Studios & Marketplace, 124 4th Avenue East, and at Art On 4th Gallery & Studio at 125 4th Avenue West, in Hendersonville, on Friday, Apr. 7, from 5 -7:30pm. The two galleries are hosting the receptions with the artists, and the sponsors of the banners, in attendance.

The art reception and sale celebrates the first annual ArtScape Hendersonville banners. Artwork selected as a result of a jury process has been reproduced on 40 banners that will hang from lamp posts on Hendersonville’s Main Street, Seventh Avenue, and side streets for a year beginning in March 2017. In providing a unique twist on an outdoor gallery experience, the project’s objective is to create an outdoor gallery experience making Hendersonville an exciting and unique art destination.

The 40 artists will be at the opening reception, and are offering the artwork depicted on the banners for sale to the public. Live music, appetizers, and drinks will be provided at both locations.

Led by Hendersonville artist, Costanza Knight, the ArtScape Hendersonville Banners Committee formed as a result of a collaboration between the Art League of Henderson County, the Arts Council of Henderson County, and Downtown Hendersonville, Inc.
