FRANK Gallery’s August exhibition brings layers of vibrant colors and rich textures to the spotlight. Special guest Lynn Bregman Blass of Asheville joins FRANK artists Peg Bachenheimer, Mirinda Kossoff, and Emily Lees for a harmonious mix of mixed media, painting, ceramics and jewelry. This highly skilled group of artists present a unique opportunity for art collectors and novices alike to view and explore some of the finest local and regional talent.

FRANK is both a fine art gallery representing the best of the local artists, as well as a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community through the arts by creating an inclusive and welcoming space. The artist members and gallery staff work hard to enrich and educate the local community in the arts.

Austin Cathey
FRANK Gallery Emerging Artist Apprentice 2017-2018

Cathey’s body of work, which earned him this position as the FRANK Emerging Artist Apprentice, represents the human experience, and reflects on how memories are made and recorded. His drawings include washes of ink and watered down paints to add a fluidity, pigment, and dimension to his work. “When the washes interact with the drawing surface they immediately stain it, leaving a record, a memory, of their existence,” Cathey explains. “As the water slowly evaporates, only reticulations are left behind; always lighter and less vibrant than their original state.” He uses repetition and layers to reflect the abundance of memories that each individual experiences, and allows the audience to openly interpret his work.
