Momentum Gallery proudly opens its new space presenting a solo exhibition of masterful trompe l'oeil works by Ron Isaacs. Visitors are regularly amazed to learn everything in Isaacs' work is made from painted plywood. Clothing and nature are favorite subjects Isaacs returns to and many of his works address that relationship between man and nature. Ron Isaacs' exhibition continues through May 31st.
The artist visits Momentum Gallery Friday, April 30th. Join us in welcoming Ron for a casual reception at the gallery from 5-7 p.m. If you are interested in attending, please call the gallery at 828-505-8550 to make a reservation. Masks must be worn at all times during this event. We will have limited capacity due to COVID protocols.
Momentum Gallery is 15,000 square feet and has incorporated various safety features for the health and well-being of our staff, artists, and patrons, including a fully touchless experience (our doors are automatic, just wave them open!) and we have UV light "air scrubbers" in our new HVAC system.
