The Transylvania Community Arts Council invites the public to enjoy Summertime with a walk to the art galleries and shops that stay open late for the June 28 Fourth Friday Gallery Walk. Explore art, music and wine as you stroll downtown from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Summer in Brevard is not to be missed and the same can be said for Number 7 Arts, Transylvania County’s longest continually operating art gallery.

This month’s featured artists include colored pencil artist Rose Haynes, the sparkling jewelry of Ruthie Cohen and David Alberts and the artwork of Nancy Richards, who paints and works in mixed media. Stop by during gallery walk to meet these artists and others.

Artists @ Work Studio and Gallery will be featuring their newest artist, Diane Kuehn. Kuehn is a fiber and mixed media artist who joined the studio June 1. Bill Drellow will also be lending some fine music along with light refreshments.

Stop by The Haen Gallery at its new location at 210 S. Broad St. The boxes may not all be unpacked, but take a tour of the beautiful gallery space, see new artwork coming in, and enjoy a glass of wine in celebration.

With locations in Brevard and Asheville, The Haen Gallery offers a collection of thoughtful and compelling contemporary artwork, including sculpture, from local, national and international artists.

Heart of the Matter, a studio for one and gallery for more, has moved to 44 E. Main St. It features new work by Cindy Walton (cold wax and oil), Judith Duff (wood fired ceramics), Galen Garapolo (mixed media), Chuck Kidwell (woodcarving), Joel Hunnicutt (Wood), Simone Wood (watercolor), Jerry Domokur (mid-century paintings) and McKenzie Keenan (collage).

Red Wolf Gallery, owned by Ann DerGara and Tom Cabe, features local, national and international artists.

On West Main Street, visit Brevard Clay, downtown Brevard’s biggest collection of handmade, local pottery, where you can also find an artist at work and creative space to paint one’s own pottery.

Upstairs is Brevard’s newest gallery, Shuptrine Gallery. The studio and gallery showcases watercolor paintings by owner Stephanie Shuptrine, as well as a collection of Giclees by her late father and renowned water-colorist, Hubert Shuptrine.

Aura Gallery, located inside Be-Boutique with Billy Smith and Bonita Shipman, will be featuring various works from Western North Carolina artist Angela Cunningham. Next door join Starfangled Press for the opening reception of “Animal Expressions” a new solo-exhibition featuring the wood engravings of artist Johanna Mueller. Fascinated by people’s relationships to animals, and animal cognition in general, Mueller combines the symbolic histories of specific animal forms with her own personal narratives to tell universal stories woven from the threads of anthropology, art, history and spirituality. See the show and enjoy a glass of wine or Oskar Blues beer at 36 W. Jordan St.

Local Color’s newest artist, Donna Hollinshead, has her hand painted caps and tops.

There is also popular yard art from Adams Crafty Creations. Check out the new fractal burning and copper work from Joseph Basting.
