Flood Gallery Fine Art Center

Flood Mission

Flood Fine Art Center is a non-profit contemporary art institution dedicated to advancing the careers of emerging and mid career artists, as well as educating the public and furthering the understanding of contemporary art and its importance within the community and beyond. We aim to provide a stimulating environment for artists so that they will successively enlighten, challenge, inspire, and elevate awareness for the necessity of art in contemporary culture.

Flood Fine Art Center seeks to be a vital cultural resource for Asheville through providing funding and space for innovative local and national artists as well as curators who stretch boundaries in all media. Through our extensive exhibition schedule, residency program, educational activities, presentations and publications we aim to serve a diverse audience that will in turn enhance quality of life and provide opportunities and experiences that would otherwise be unavailable.

September 9, 2006 Minority Report

Please join us for the Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center’s inaugural Emerging Artist Series.  The exhibition Minority Report will feature three young artists two from New York City and one from Sarasota, Florida. The Emerging Artist Series is a program that promotes young artists in the early stages of their careers.  The Flood Fine Arts Center presents leading artists with the ambition to expose the concepts of fresh contemporary thought.

Artists Cory Bradley, James Frank Tribble and Jake Ehrlund will be shown in an opening reception on Saturday, September 9, 2006 from 7-10pm with music presented by The New Standards Group, a cutting edge jazz group from Charleston, South Carolina.

A unifying principal between the three artists is the use and manipulation of the human body in a dialogue about American life today through two dimensional formats. Bradley, Tribble and Ehrlund employ traditional mediums of paint and photography to comment on experience and humanly desire. Woven in their work is a message that deals with perception of race, of human interaction, and of visual intelligence. In turn, the group’s images call into question the thread that binds conditions of Americana and the surrounding ideals understood by culture today.

Cory Bradley is a 2006 a graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL with a BFA degree in illustration; James Frank Tribble attends the School of Visual Arts, New York for photography, and Jake Ehrlund is a 2006 graduate of the School of Visual Arts, New York, with a BFA degree in illustration.
