PAPER opens at Townsend Atelier

Townsend Atelier is preparing to host PAPER, an art exhibition and sale by artists Daud Akhriev, Timur Akhriev and Melissa Hefferlin. The exhibit will feature works on paper including gouache, watercolor, oil, drawings, pastels, etchings and linoleum prints signed and numbered by the artists. Some work will be framed and some will be loose for custom framing after purchase. Over 50 works will be available and will range in price. The public is invited to a free opening reception on Friday, March 2 from 5:30-9 p.m. at Townsend Atelier, 301 E. 11th St.

Daud, the classicist of the three, is drawn to etching and charcoal drawing. His wife, Melissa, enjoys pastels on paper as well as relief printing. Her designs for Serithea fine silk scarves all began as linoleum cuts. Their son, Timur, relies on graphite drawing and gouache for exploring composition ideas and color combinations. All three artists exhibit and sell their work internationally and are regular instructors at Townsend Atelier.

The exhibit will be on view Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., or by appointment through April 6. Information: Townsend Atelie, 423 266-2712, info@townsendatelier.com
