The Gallery at Flat Rock is excited to present “In the Land of Dreams,” an exhibition of paintings by artist Cynthia Wilson, from Aug. 16 – Sept. 9.
Primarily working in acrylic paints, Cynthia looks to tap into the realm of dreams and the distinct imagery and uncanny emotion they evoke. Some years ago, while at the Kanuga Dream Conference, she learned that dreams are for wholeness and healing, and that at least some of the dream symbols are universal to all people.
An opening reception for “In the Land of Dreams” will take place from 5-7 p.m. on Aug. 16; the reception is free and open to the public. On Aug. 23 Cynthia will present an artist talk at 5:30 p.m.

The Gallery at Flat Rock is proud to present RetroForward, a retrospective exhibit of artwork by Marsha Hammel, a Hendersonville-based painter whose colorful canvases depicting musicians, singers and dancers have been exhibited nationally and internationally. The RetroForward exhibition will include pieces by Hammel dating over the 30-year period between 1987-2017.
This first-ever month-long art obsession will launch March 3, with artists taking their respective art forms to the floorboards of the gallery in what promises to be a riotous display of creative activity.
Crafted as a stimulating cultural alternative to the endless mind-numbing basketball of that other March event, March Art Madness will get viewers involved with a free raffle offering a $150 prize for the art fan who clocks the most visits to witness artists in action as they show off their skilled finesse in paint, clay, wood and drawing media on the gallery floor.
