"Spheres of Influence" – Exhibition of Abstract Paintings by Linda Gritta to Open at UNC Asheville on March 1


Spheres of Influence, an exhibition of abstract paintings by Linda Gritta, will be featured at UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library Blowers Gallery March 1-30, and an opening reception with the artist will be held from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 in the gallery. The exhibition and reception are free and open to everyone.

Originally from Chicago, Gritta earned a BFA at Converse College and then continued her studies at the New York Studio School. After gaining a foundation in traditional painting and printmaking, Gritta has turned to abstraction, driven, she says, by her “fascination with the order and the apparent chaos we find in nature, physics and within ourselves.”

Spheres of Influence does feature spheres along with what Gritta describes as “grandly meandering abstract paintings” – her goal in the exhibition is presenting an “honest attempt of one artist to express both the simplicity and the complexity of the world.”

Blowers Gallery is open during regular library hours – daily and most evenings in March. Ramsey Library hours are posted online at library.unca.edu/about/hours
