Momentum Gallery is thrilled to announce we have installed our first piece of public art in Downtown Asheville! Stainless Steel Ripple by Hoss Haley, a 90-sq.-ft. sculpture that now graces the entryway of our new 52 Broadway location in downtown Asheville, is the first of many works we hope to share with the community. It is Momentum Gallery's belief that public art has the ability to humanize architecture and enliven public spaces.
This iconic piece by one of our region's most celebrated makers explores ideas of movement and transparency, a major feat considering its material is not glass, but steel. Two of Haley's large-scale sculptures in corten steel are among recent acquisitions by Charlotte's Mint Museum and Raleigh's North Carolina Museum of Art. Hoss Haley is the artist behind other major works in downtown Asheville - the Pack Place (bronze and stone) fountain and (stainless steel) pergola in front of City Hall, two works that draw inspiration from the landscape surrounding Asheville. A solo exhibition of Haley's latest work is currently planned for Momentum Gallery's summer season.
As we settle into our forever home at 52 Broadway, we couldn't be more grateful for the artists we represent and the value they bring to this community. Momentum Gallery is now open by appointment only. The new gallery space will open to the public on March 15th. Please call the gallery at (828) 505-8550 to schedule your appointment. We are looking forward to sharing our new space with you!
