As their final show of 2013, PUSH Skateboards & Gallery will display the art of recent Asheville-transplant, Adam Void.
The Crossroads will feature work responding to extensive travel, spiritual quandaries, and political end-times. Preferring to create an immersive environment, The Crossroads spans the mediums of sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, and collage.
The work on display includes a life-sized found object assemblage of a horse-drawn pioneer/gypsy wagon, a site-specific indoor mural, poetically combined cardboard signs, and a curated “show within a show” of works from local and national underground artists.
