The Scoop

MARK FLOWERS EVOLVES WITH NEW WORK IN ONE PERSON EXHIBITION Accomplished painter evolves from visual poetry to visual jazz in new works. In his first one-person exhibition since before the pandemic, 68 year-old veteran artist, Mark Flowers continues to evolve in his style. The exhibition titled “Under Tones” of over 20 works will be on display at the Pink Dog Gallery at 348 Depot Street in Asheville’s River Arts District. Opening reception for the artist will be on June 17 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The exhibition will run until July 17. In March of 2021, while visiting Baltimore, MD, Flowers rode a commuter train from downtown out to the suburbs and back. He held his cell phone to the window and recorded still images as the train moved. The series of forms in motion and spontaneous imagery are the foundation of this new work. It was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council materials grant. The main part of the exhibition includes the “Baltimore Series” paintings.
