Featured LGBTQ Art Work Shows 

April 14-May 9 Heather Shirin – Asheville Lesbian Artist 
London District Studios –8 London Road, (River District) 
Latest Exhibition – Following the Stars to Freedom
Women are the main focus in Shirin’s series. Her subjects
 are painted on raw wood surfaces with acrylics. Often, the
 paint soaks through the panel, adding further texture to the 
piece. Shirin also incorporates various fine art papers, such 
as gold leaf, into her works to create an otherworldly feel.      Exhibition is Free. 

May 20-21 Dan Neil Barnes – Gay Mixed Media Artist
Hot Work’s Asheville Fine Arts Show 
US Cellular Center  Downtown Asheville 
Dan Neil Barnes is a mixed media sculptor with a growing
 reputation for thoughtfully-designed and intricately-wrought 
works that combine vibrantly colored stained and fused glass
 with soldered bronze, copper, aluminum and other metallic 
accents. His pieces will be featured at the Show.                         See Bulletin Board
