The Alchemy of Painting: Recent Works by Cindy Walton and George Masry Isaac

Exhibition Dates: August 25 - October 17 Reception: Friday, September 12 | 6 :00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Cindy Walton, C’79, a native of St. Petersburg, Fla., is a 25 year resident of Asheville, N.C. A committed artist from childhood, Walton earned a BA from Salem College and a BFA from the University of North Carolina Asheville. Throughout her art career, Walton has developed highly personalized techniques that translate and transform nature. As a result, her paintings, whether abstract or figurative, are transformative interpretations rather than literal renderings. George Masry Isaac was born in Egypt in 1960 to a Coptic Christian family. He moved to the United States from Egypt in 1979 and earned his BFA and MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. As an artist, he has sought to understand the complex underpinnings of Egyptian culture — with all of its multiple layers of history and art — and to assimilate it with contemporary thought and artistic practice.
